You do not want your culture to develop from disagreeable personality, power, or politics

Culture develops organically, and it can be based on power, personality and politics if you aren’t paying attention to the culture you are building.

This episode focuses on building a culture that supports and nurtures the people in your organization. We speak with McKenzie Wren, the Chief Engagement Officer of Wren Consulting. She helps organizations build and manage teams by creating a culture on purpose. Today, McKenzie explains the importance of building a culture of understanding, mutualism, and positive energy.  Specifically, she:

  • Defines a “culture on purpose”
  • Clarifies the benefits of inclusion and diversity
  • Shares tools and mantras that enable your healthy culture

Inclusion is not about tokenism; it is accessing what each person has to build culture
