Matt believes that people support what they help create. He believes whole-heartedly that organizations which place people as their central focus outperform their peers, have lower turnover rates and are far more profitable as a result. Organizational Culture is important but often misused because the people who drive and support the culture are often not the focus. To build strong company cultures, we must build strong individuals and comprise our teams of them. Leaders at every level of an organization who are focusing on building strong, individual leaders to drive teams, create resonate leadership across all organizational levels. To turn these efforts into meaningful actions, we must coach our teammates to be the best version of themselves.
