The Business of Being Human podcast discusses Corporate Culture in the Great Re-evaluation.
In this episode, Wendy chats with Candra Canning, founder of Live Bright Now, to discuss what companies can do to retain talent and create empowering work cultures. Candra is a certified leadership coach and a master facilitator who has been coaching corporate leaders and teams to brighten their performance for over 20 years.
Starting with how to bring joy into the workplace, Candra outlines the importance of honoring employees’ strengths and asking “what is the larger why of the company.” Candra shares how the “culture conversation” is a conversation around performance and doing great work together as a team. In a business culture that allows people to play with their strengths, there will be collective ownership in the larger WHY of the company.
The Great Resignation is calling quits on meaningless work; companies are needing to intrinsically inspire people to join and do something. Candra recognizes that it’s important that the CEO embodies the inspiring vision of the business to cultivate an empowering culture. In her work, she creates co-horts among team members to cultivate a place of openness and safety for employees to share their full experiences. Candra fosters intimacy between teams by taking companies out of the conference room and into the outdoors, incorporating The Science of Awe.
This conversation will help you reimagine how performance is linked to its culture.
