Event Description:
“Building a Positive Organizational Culture”
Most companies are so obsessed with perfecting their product or service, they don’t spend much time developing or maintaining their company’s culture.  That’s a BIG mistake.  They don’t realize the importance of a shared vision/mission and values until they aren’t getting the results they expected or the company is spinning its wheels. 
It’s important to instill a clear common mission that all are aware of and can focus on, like the north star.  It’s just as important to create a solid ethical foundation and insist on adherence at ALL levels.  Surrounding all of this is strong, visible leadership, timely communication and recognition.  If implemented correctly the results are often:
-       Improved business results
-       More effective, innovative and happy workforce / greater productivity
-       Increased employee retention
