July 7, 2020 - My guest is Michele Gelfand, Distinguished University Professor of Psychology at the University of Maryland and author of Rule Makers, Rule Breakers: How Tight and Loose Cultures Wire the World - her groundbreaking book on how different cultural norms can be classified into tight and loose cultures, along with the implications of those norms. In our discussion, we focus on the importance of these classifications for organizational behavior, both in terms of resiliency and innovation as well as the impact of threat on cultural tendencies. For board members and executives governing the long-term success of their organizations, Michele's findings are essential knowledge.
