Your definitions are strong. I would add "Corporate/Organizational
Personality" to your list of issues within organizational culture. Every
organization has one and without addressing it, you leave yourself open
for problems. I would define Corporate/Organizational Personality as the
actions taken and manner in which the most challenging issues are handled.
It is in the most difficult situations that people's as well as
organization's true identity is revealed. IMO the organization's
personality is what it actually DOES vs. what is SAYS it does or wants to
do. I welcome your comments or reply. ~CJ
