Culture trumps strategy any day

Posted April 4, 2014 by Col. YOLANDA BLEDSOE

With more than 24 years in the military, I have come to realize the old adage, “Culture will eat strategy for lunch every day of the week” is a true statement, and we as Airmen have a responsibility to cultivate an inspiring and healthy workplace culture.
