~ Curating Your Company Culture ~
Curate Your Culture
Your company’s culture helps your employees understand how to get things done within your organization. It identifies what is important, and defines which behaviors support your company’s purpose—and which ones do not. A strong culture rather than a long list of rule can ensure consistency in leadership, decision-making, and behavior across the organization. As Leaders, you are responsible for fostering the culture of your organization, and we can show you how.
During this presentation we will discuss how Leaders play the role of “Culture Gatekeeper” through:
- Attracting candidates who fit your culture
- Motivating people to change direction, build new strategies, transform business models, and adopt new ways of collaboration
- Messaging, visuals, and campaigns to engage and educate your employees on who you are, where you’re going, and how, together, you can get there
