SESSION DESCRIPTION:

It’s not About Ping Pong Tables and Dogs at the Office. Cultivating Success and Growing the Bottom Line with Culture and Strategy.

Co-Presented with Kevin Smith
The data is in. Culture is far more connected to business success than most organizations and their leaders think it is – and while perks and flexible schedules are nice, they don’t sustain real business achievement. But Culture is tough – it goes far beyond free lunches and once-a-year off-sites. Culture is the critical component for cultivating innovation, agility, and accountability. When leadership fosters an environment of strategic clarity, inclusive diversity, dynamic collaboration and ongoing feedback and learning, they can maximize the impact of their strategic execution and grow an operating culture that sustains performance through an engaged and intrinsically motivated workforce. Join us to learn the theory and hear the case study of how Strategy, Leadership and Culture can turn disruption into opportunity.

Engage. Educate. Empower.
