Stories are the cornerstone of our civilization. It's how we transmit norms and get things done. They are also the stuff culture is made of. What's the story at your company?
My guest this week is, Mike Ganino. He's the author of Company Culture For Dummies and this guy is no dummy (but I am glad he wrote a book for me). We hit on all facets of culture but, most importantly, we hit on the question all leaders should be asking.....what are people saying the story is here?
Mike is a barrel of energy, super fun and I know you'll get some great take aways from our conversation. CHEERS!
