Episode 5: Transforming Your Company’s Culture
Featuring Marissa Levin, CEO of Successful Culture
It’s the businesses that chase a vision that will truly change the world – and the market. But the vision must start internally. From the company’s employees to the company’s core values, every aspect of the business must embody your mission if you want to thrive. This is why establishing a powerful company culture has transitioned from something that is “nice-to-have” to something that is a “must-have.”
But what does a strong company culture entail? How do you develop and implement a set of core values?
In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, you will hear from Marissa Levin – CEO of Information Experts, one of the nation’s most successful strategic communications, marketing, education and human capital firms, and CEO of Successful Culture, an organization dedicated to helping leaders build extraordinary cultures – as she discusses what it takes to create a thriving company culture and that can lead to a more fulfilling, successful business model.
