Internal communicators, much like scientists, introduce different elements—and workplace life forms—that determine and, sometimes, alter the dish’s environment. In either setting, elemental concoctions can be harmonious and complementary—or potentially explosive.

People and relationships. The graphic lists “CtP,” which stands for “culture trumps performance,” citing: “Nearly 60 percent of HR leaders say they would fire a strong performer who did not fit into the company culture.”
There’s also “F” for “friendships” and “Ap” for appreciation.
