Thoughts about Creating a Positive Culture

  • “Strategize projects and goals, inspire and lead people”.
  • “Each experience an employee has creates a deposit or withdrawal in the Employee Experience Bank Account. The balance of those events creates the level of satisfaction and engagement in each employee.”
  • “Why do employees leave? A better question is “why did they start looking”?
  • “If we are meeting employees basic needs at work they tend to be satisfied.”
  • “Employees who have a sense of control in their destiny are actively engaged or looking for a new location to be activity engaged”
  • “If employees are our greatest asset do we treat them as special as our personal greatest asset (like a new car) or as great as our best customer?”
  • “Leadership is about relationship.”
  • “Set others up for success, have positive expectations, and give them feedback on their journey”.
  • “Ask for your idea to be dissected – you will have a better product, service, system and result”.
