    In every organization in the public or private sector, three generic subcultures have to be identified and managed to minimize destructive conflict. Such conflicts are often misdiagnosed as political interdepartmental fights, power maneuvers, or personality conflicts. What can be missed in that perception is that the different groups may have evolved genuinely different subcultures, that the contributions of each of these subcultures is needed for organizational effectiveness, but that these subcultures can be in conflict with each other.

    visionary leaders articulate where a group is going, but not how it will get there—setting people free to innovate, experiment, and take calculated risks.
