It was so much fun speaking about company culture with the Cedar Rapids EDC Founders group last month.   The EDC is a community-sponsored business accelerator that focuses on supporting businesses with their seasoned team of executives who provide specialized assistance and programming to propel companies to the next level.

The culture conversation focused on, defining the key pieces of a solid culture foundation, discussion of value descriptions, importance of all leaders “living” the culture,  and how to make it part of daily organizational life (more than just words on a wall). The business owners had great questions and were able to leave with steps to take in developing their own company culture foundation.

I was inspired by the entrepreneurs who are chasing their dreams. You get this ONE life – make it count!

I look forward to working with the EDC again!
