Ping-pong tables, free-lunch Friday, or another amenity are just things. Things are not culture. Culture is how you show up. Shaara Roman joins Kevin to discuss building a conscious workplace. Often, there is a disconnect between what we say our culture is and what we see, feel, and hear in the hallways (virtual or physical). When you are conscious of your culture, you know and live your values. You know what differentiates you from the competitors. You know how to hold people accountable. When we know our purpose, we can drive profits.
