Putting People First: One Company's Journey to Create a Meaning and Values Driven Culture
Employees are experiencing a crisis of confidence in their leaders and organizations, and words like engagement, loyalty and purpose seem like a luxury. Research shows us that deep engagement contributes to outstanding business results, but don't take our word for it…
YSC consultant Karen West will moderate a panel discussion of senior leaders from Luck Stone Corporation, a privately held company that produces and supplies aggregates across the US. While breaking rock may not sound inspiring, this organization has an incredible story to tell around putting people first, leading with purpose and living their values. Luck Stone aspires to lead the world in emulating – and then helping other organizations acquire – Values Based Leadership.
Learn about practical tools, programs and strategies you can implement at your own company. The panel members will address such questions as:
- How did Luck Stone become so passionate about Values Based Leadership?
- Do your financial results justify your investment in time and energy into this pursuit?
- What recommendation do you have for other companies on how best to get the momentum going?
- What has been the biggest challenge your organization has had to overcome in trying to establish an engaged and values driven culture?
- If you could only give one piece of advice to other companies, what would it be?
