All great, sustainable organizations have a culture of passion, meaning and purpose. This doesn’t mean you need to be working for a company trying to find a cure for cancer. It doesn’t matter what you sell, as long as the culture is purpose driven. Culture determines the success or failure of an organization, and it all begins and ends with leadership and collaboration.
In this dynamic leadership and teamwork driven program, based on Scott Deming’s second book – “Powered by Purpose” he demonstrates how differing points of view and healthy debate should be encouraged, as long as everyone agrees on the mission, purpose and objective. Through clear communication, sharing of ideas and checking the egos at the door, a culture of inspiration and innovation takes shape and the end result is an unprecedented customer experience.
Case studies will be discussed, corporate heroes will be highlighted and proof will be shown, that companies without a purpose driven and value oriented culture cannot survive in a world where people are seeking meaningful interactions and trusting relationships.
