Culture Matters!

Peter Drucker said it well when he said, "Culture eats strategy for breakfast"...and product brilliance for lunch, and so on.  I'm a business strategist...and a product developer, but neither can outdo the lasting competitive advantage of purposeful culture. And why am I passionate about authentic leadership?...because it's the core ingredient to building a conscious culture of shared values, inclusion, and engagement that can persist through any downturn, generating innovation through adversity and loyalty through any challenge.

Putting Culture First
I'm so exhilarated to have found "my tribe" at Culture First, a circle of "people geeks" who believe that a better world of work is possible, and know that the data shows culture first companies will outperform the rest. Culture First is a global web of local communities-of-practice where you can share and learn, connect and grow. Whatever your role, whether CEO or intern, you can join together with likeminded culture builders near you and join a movement that's changing the world of work, and beyond.
