Culture is King in the 21st Century

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

Companies can crash quickly today, as we have learned through social media. They can be up today and down tomorrow. When you scratch the surface, you find that a toxic culture is always a root cause. Typically, these are organizations with leaders who foster fear or turn a blind eye to those that do. Our special guest this week is Tim Kuppler, Director of Culture and Organization Development with Human Synergistics, a premier organization for culture development and change. Listen in as we discuss insights about the past, present and future of culture development and the connections to performance that are not widely understood.

Creating a Championship Culture

Listen in this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show! We are replaying one of our favorite shows from 2017, when our guest was Lee MJ Elias, the award-winning author of WIN: What Every Team Needs to Know to Create a Championship Culture and Think Like a Fan: Invest in Your Fans So They Invest in You.

Teamwork is the time-honored ingredient for success in just about any endeavor, unless you work alone and under a rock. We don’t know many people that do though. This show explores the techniques used in sports by Lee MJ Elias and how they relate to building any team for greatness, no matter where they are and how dispersed they are. We talked about a step by step approach to building a team to be champions. At the heart of all successful teams is a great culture, but great cultures can quickly be destroyed by favoritism, neglect, lack of respect, and injustice. Organizations and leaders must avoid these elements at all costs to thrive in the 21st Century.
