As leaders, we all want to see those we lead come together to accomplish a BIG mission. But we can, at times, get bogged down and become overwhelmed with the HOW. That's where adopting an effective strategy comes into play. Before we can enact that strategy, though, we must root it in a stable foundation: purpose. The question we all face is this: How do we lay a purposeful, strategic foundation? A certified strategist and a passionate student of applying strategic plans in varying contexts, Jenni teaches us how to build a strategy that stays aligned with our vision by discovering the foundational purpose that serves as the firm footing for everything we do.

Building An Extraordinary Team CultureAs leaders, we all agree that the culture of our organization--the unique DNA that makes up our team's identity--is crucial. But we don't always know just how to build it in such a way that our culture is healthy, authentic and an environment in which those we lead can thrive. In this week's episode, our host Jenni Catron illuminates the HOW of building an extraordinary culture among those we lead. She encourages patience as we lead through clarifying purpose and laying the foundation for behaviors that reflect what our organizations truly value. Ultimately, the strategies we employ to accomplish our mission will flow out of these building blocks. With practical examples and stories of culture in action, Jenni will help you lead well as you seek to build an environment of healthy success for your team.

We've all experienced moments with different environments, brands or products that simply capture us...and for more than their functionality or their aesthetic. It's because they make us FEEL a certain way. The bring about an "I want to be a part of this. I want to get in on whatever this is." response in us. In a word, they've won us over with their CULTURE.In this episode, the first in our Culture Series, Jenni Catron discusses why culture matters. What difference does it make for your team or your organization? Not only that, but she helps leaders understand what culture IS and, perhaps just as importantly, what it ISN'T. She explores where your voice as a leader belongs in the culture you're cultivating and some questions you can ask yourself that will help you begin to think in new ways about the culture you're building and take steps toward a plan for it to become even healthier, stronger and more engaging.
