Culture impacts the way people think and are wired and activated. The good news is that we, our brains, our minds are malleable. Much like the changing tide can erode a footprint in the sand, so too can changed experience over time reshape these brain activations. In this sense, the brain can be seen as a “cultural sponge” of sorts, absorbing the regularities of our surrounding physical and social environments.” Organizational culture has an entire system of activity, a collective, that once understood, can help shape a culture of excellence.
