In a talk he gave at a welcome reception for Quinlan School of Business graduate students, Loyola’s Porter Moser offered seven tips for building a winning culture. Moser’s point was that the same principles that made his Ramblers squad the darlings of this past year’s NCAA Tournament would be the same ones that would govern a small business or large corporation.
1. Set the tone
2. Recruit and hire culture
3. Empower your people
4. Be inspired by the past, and focused on the future
5. Be obsessed with getting better
6. Leave entitlement at the door
7. Do it the right way
