Total your score.
What does your score mean?
30 or above: You are either Zappos-like or in denial.
1 to 30: Excellent — a positive score indicates a positive culture. Now is the best opportunity to maximize the value of the culture!
-9 to 0: Don’t cry — this is typical. Many people like to be average.
-39 to -10: You know there are problems. Hopefully this quiz can help you determine the action you want to take.
- 40 or lower: Plan your exit strategy; get out while you can! Life could be better!
Note: This quiz was designed for awareness and has not been statistically validated. I hope it gives you areas to look at to strengthen your culture.
