Why do you think it didn't work at a different location?  What are you considering about your own company SPECIFICALLY when you consider how to drive a culture of performance?
  • Can you provide examples of failures or negative outcomes that you feel are preventable when trying to drive culture?
  • How do you think about the demographics of your teams and how that relates to developing a culture of high performance, if at all?
