5 Power Pillars of High-Performing Cultures
Are you ready? Elevate your leadership skills. Align your leaders with your organization. Empower your leaders with new tools they can use immediately for more. More results. More engagement. More revenue. Corporate Culture influences productivity, creativity, profitability, firm value, and growth rates. According to a recent Forbes study, 90% of executives say culture is important and yet only 15% say their culture is where it needs to be. Learn the secrets the masters use to engage the 5 pillars shared by all high performing teams. SPEAKER BIO: Jean Briese is a desert baby, living and loving in the Sonoran Desert of Phoenix, Arizona. A native to Phoenix, Jean has an affinity for the desert. While much of our beautiful world is lush and green, the desert can be sparse and dry. Jean’s early years were sparse like the desert. Jean experienced a life changing grace as a young teen, eldest of four, when they were abandoned by their mother two weeks before Christmas. Homeless, and with nothing but a high school education, she went on to build an abundant career in sales and sales leadership, creating and leading award winning sales teams at one of Fortune’s Top Ten Companies. Through her career, she has coached countless individuals to becoming their best self, redefined great teams, and shattered what was believed impossible. The desert blooms in the most unlikely places. Whether it is through rock or through parched, barren ground; life breaks through and delivers a stunning show of strength as the seedling blooms wherever it finds itself planted.
