The importance of building strong team and company cultures was a consistent theme at both the PMI Leadership Institute Meeting and the Agile Development Conference. So, I thought I would start the week sharing two videos that were part of Eduardo Braun‘s presentation, How To Become An Effective Leader, at the PMI LIM.
Eduardo opened that presentation by asserting that culture can multiply results, citing that the best companies:
- Perform 2x better
- Provide 2x better returns
- Experience 65% less turnover
- Have happier people
His presentation included videos from several CEOs and world leaders, discussing various aspects of leadership. Two of the CEOs, Tony Hsieh from Zappos.com and Herb Kelleher from Southwest Airlines, have videos discussing their views on culture on YouTube. So, here is a little inspiration for building strong culture to start your week. Enjoy!
