Sometimes “reality wins” as an excuse not to change occurs so often in an organization that the actual reality of toxic culture never improves or changes for better.

Don’t trick yourself into believing you can change anything by merely relabeling the brand. The truth will come out in the relationships.
Change agents must play and commit to a long-term strategy.
