  • Culture is your ultimate competitive weapon

    Your clients do not pay a premium for your product or service. You earn premium pricing because you deliver your product or service better than your competition. Your ability to consistently outperform your competition is a direct function of the quality of your company culture.

  • Take your front lines with you

    A heathy culture is leader driven and employee owned. Often, a disconnect exists between the C-suite and employees responsible for executing in accordance with your culture. Brian teaches how to anchor your culture organization wide. Brian forcefully reminds leaders of their responsibility to act in alignment with company values.

  • Values vs Priorities

    A company’s culture must be anchored in non-negotiable core values. Yet, daily priorities can cause a company to compromise or ignore core values. This is the point when quality and customer goodwill erode. Brian teaches how to ensure your organization is grounded in its non-negotiable core values.

  • People + Process = Culture

    A healthy culture occurs with the convergence of the right people and process functioning in harmony. Yet, so many company failures arise when employees fail to follow process. Brian shares how to ensure process is understood and followed consistently to promote the best outcomes.

  • Culture Killers

    Complacency, silos and lack of accountability will derail your culture. Brian addresses each of these challenges and how to drive them out of your organization.

  • The Three T’s

    The Three T’s are: Treatment, Transparency
    and Trust. Where the Three T’s are lacking,
    it is difficult to optimize your culture and
    organizational performance. Brian shows his
    audiences how to build the Three T’s, resulting
    in excellent employee engagement.

  • Power vs. Authority

    Identify those front line employees and supervisors who have the power to build your culture.

  • Learn your clients’ cultures

    To grow your business, it is important to understand the cultures of your clients and prospects. Long term success results from attracting clients who share similar values. The best business development professionals know their product and service – and the values that are important to their clients.

  • Culture Contracts

    Create a one-page culture contract spelling out the unique rules of engagement at your company. Integrate this into your orientation process so that there are no questions about your expectations.

  • Engage Your Families

    Engage families in your company’s culture. Family support is essential for employees to truly embrace their jobs.

  • “Just Culture”

    Explore why a “one size fits all” discipline-based approach is not effective. Abandon “oldschool” thinking in favor of just culture.

  • Eliminate Toxic Behavior

    In a healthy culture, employees behave in alignment with your norms. Identify toxic behaviors that are sure to undermine your performance and learn how to properly address those behaviors.

  • Listen to the whispers

    A large client rarely walks away. Excellent employees rarely just quit. Normally, major loss happens after a series of smaller failures. Many of these failures are rooted in short cuts, poor accountability and lack of remedial action. Brian addresses how to listen to the whispers so that you don’t have to clean up major damage.

5 Tips for Building
a Healthy Company Culture

  1. Building Culture

    Building a vibrant culture requires leaders to manage behavior, philosophy and attitude. It’s less about handbooks, rules and regulations.

  2. Communicating Value

    People covet most that which they cannot buy. In a vibrant culture, employees know they are appreciated and their contributions are valued. 

  3. Take A Stand

    Create an internally recognized brand around culture. It is an expression of who you are and what you stand for. 

  4. Align & Balance

    Ensure that compensation and advancement programs reward employees who are both productive and culturally aligned.

  5. Get in the Driver's Seat

    Leadership must drive the culture and pull harder than anyone else. That said, you’ll know it’s working when culturally aligned behavior
    occurs organically and peer-to-peer.

“We felt his program was very easy to follow and offered simple, concrete ideas that we could use at our company. Brian’s program certainly provided value to our company, and we recommend him to other businesses seeking to improve safety, operations and productivity.”
