Dr. Kathy Hagler is a preeminent thought leader in organizational transformation, driven to understand and improve the communication and connectivity between individuals and organizations. She studied with, and collaborated alongside Dr. W. Edwards Deming and Dr. Peter Drucker and is the Founding Partner of K2OHSOLUTIONS, an organizational consulting firm. Kathy is also the author of a new book entitled, “Art of Scars: Healing Organizational Culture, Climate, Character”.
We talk about what organizations can do to survive and prosper in the future, the ways that fear manifests within organizations, how current leaders can implement strategies to develop new leaders, and what can be done to repair a wounded organization.
Building an organization of character requires its leaders and members to stop acting from the level of the pre-programmed subconscious. They must band together and consciously ask themselves the questions that truly matter: How are we doing? Who are we serving? Why do we exist? What are our core values? Where are we headed? How will we get there?
