Every company has a personality. Does yours help or hinder your results? Does it make you fit for growth? Find out by taking the quiz thata€™s helped 50, 000 people better understand their organizations at and to learn more about Organizational DNA. Just as you can understand an individuala€™s personality, so too can you understand a companya€™s typea€”what makes it tick, whata€™s good and bad about it. Results explains why some organizations bob and weave and roll with the punches to consistently deliver on commitments and produce great results, while others cana€™t leave their corner of the ring without tripping on their own shoelaces. Gary Neilson and Bruce Pasternack help you identify which of the seven company types you work fora€”and how to keep whata€™s good and fix whata€™s wrong. Youa€™ll feel the shock of recognition (a€œThata€™s me, thata€™s my companya€) as you find out whether your organization is: a€c Passive-Aggressive (a€œeveryone agrees, smiles, and nods, but nothing changesa€): entrenched underground resistance makes getting anything done like trying to nail Jell-O to the wall a€c Fits-and-Starts (a€œlet 1, 000 flowers blooma€): filled with smart people pulling in different directions a€c Outgrown (a€œthe good old days meet a brave new worlda€): reacts slowly to market developments, since ita€™s too hard to run new ideas up the flagpole a€c Overmanaged (a€œwea€™re from corporate and wea€™re here to helpa€): more reporting than working, as managers check on their subordinatesa€™ work so they can in turn report to their bosses a€c Just-in-Time (a€œsucceeding, but by the skin of our teetha€): can turn on a dime and create real breakthroughs but also tends to burn out its best and brightest a€c Military Precision (a€œflying in formationa€): executes brilliant strategies but usually does not deal well with events not in the playbook a€c Resilient (a€œas good as it getsa€): flexible, forward-looking, and fun; bounces back when it hits a bump in the road and never, ever rests on its laurels For anyone whoa€™s ever said, a€œWow, thata€™s a great idea, but ita€™ll never happen herea€ or a€œWhew, we pulled it off again, but Ia€™m tired of all this sprinting, a€ Results provides robust, practical ideas for becoming and remaining a resilient business.
