Leading Cultural Change

How important is a strong culture to your bottom line? Researchers say companies with engaged employees outperform companies without engaged employees by 202 percent. The majority of leaders know that engagement affects their business but less than ¼ of employers have an engagement strategy. Prepare for the future by leading a strategic cultural change that aligns your values and your actions.
