“If you want to know what your culture is and if you want to shape it, you have to audit who is being hired, fired, and promoted because those are the types of behaviours that you’re really showing. Yes, these are true values and some of the ways that we can shape culture is around what are our policies around the way that people behave.” Making sure that our workplace culture is hitting in the right direction with Alexis Haselberger on the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast.
“If we want any kind of change around the amount of time that we’re working or what are the standards and things like that, we actually have to think about how we work during the day because most people that I work with, their time during the 9 to 5 during the day is like 80 to 90% meetings.” Alexis Haselberger about our communication norms in the workplace on the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast.
“I want to adopt an efficiency technology so that I can do the same stuff in less time, that I have more time for other stuff that may be more compelling to me.” Using technology more efficiently to increase productivity and achieve balance with Alex Haselberger on the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast.
