316. How to Harness the Power of People for a Better Workplace and a Better World

Sep 13, 2021 | 0 comments

The world of work as we know it has been turned upside down. The rules have changed in everything, from the day to day operations of leading virtual teams, to building a culture that attracts and keeps amazing talent.

As leaders, you must face the hard truth that your biggest challenge isn’t technology, it isn’t innovation, and it isn’t even leading. It’s finding, engaging, and developing the right talent to thrive right now and in the future.

Johnny C. Taylor has a challenge for you. He’s the author of Reset: A Leader’s Guide to Work in an Age of Upheaval. If you’re an individual contributor, this challenge will give you hope for a better workplace and a better world. If you’re a leader in an organization, this challenge is even more critical. Right now is the moment to prioritize company culture and getting it right–because if you don’t, you will lose the war on talent.

Every company has a culture, but not all are built with intention. The cultures we build within organizations have the power to change the world, and if we want a world that prioritizes and serves people, we have to build our culture with care.
