Architect of Change – The Values-Driven Organization
Connie’s motivational quote today is by, ~ Benjamin Franklin
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”
Ever look at that list of the top 100 places to work and think – geez, I’d really like to work for a place like that. What do you think landed those organizations a spot on that list? Far from the so-called benefits like vacation and pension plans of last century – today’s companies are excelling by seeing the individual as a whole and not just an employee.
So … how did they do it? Companies like Zappo’s and Google got there by being Value – Driven Organizations – AND! By being organizationally conscious. Do you even know what “organizationally conscious” means?
What about your company …would you say that your company has a strong culture that supports the development of all employees? If so, good for you! If not, todays topic should provide some enlightenment as well as some clear how to’s, in order to create such a dynamic company, where all employees thrive!
Need some help? I know I could use a hand and am eager to hear how we can all create such dynamic cultures at our companies.
