Many organizations hire solely based on the candidate's skills and experience. However, the employee will be more productive and be a better fit for the company culture if there's a match between the person's career/position and his or her personality. MORE >According to Gallup, 77% of employees who know what their company stands for and what makes it different from competitors strongly agree that they plan to be with the company for at least one year. From a study conducted by IBM, 80% of employees felt more engaged when their work was consistent with the core values and mission of their organization.
The best employees are those that are an ideal fit with the organization, and that means in terms of the company, the culture, other employees, and values.
We believe that the ideal candidate and employee is one for whom there is an alignment with all the above, as well as the position/job description itself.
How do you know if there's a fit between the company and the hiring candidate or even existing team members or employees?
In this workshop, participants will:
- Learn how to uncover the company's Deeper Why
- Discover a method for determining a candidate's and employee's value system
- Explore a simple tool to evaluate whether you truly have the right people in the right seats

What is it you want people to know about your business, your organization? What is so special about it? Why? When you think about what makes your company stand out, do you think numbers – profits, sales? However, most companies have some sort of human element that allows us to connect. MORE >Making that connection can come through telling a good story – and that good story will not only represent but enhance your brand.
Everyone has a story to tell – even if you don’t believe you do. Sometimes, the stories we think we need to tell aren’t the ones that need to be shared the most. As a filmmaker and journalist, I’ve had the privilege and power to share people’s stories. At the very least, an audience is entertained. Best case scenario, they are changed. MORE >Telling your story can help you build your brand, conquer a goal, or merely explain to others how you came to be who you are.
My films tell the stories of people who made a difference in both small and large ways. Many of them didn’t think they were doing anything at all. However by just being, they were making a difference.
For me, my story is that we all have a purpose – and mine is to help you share your story – because if someone else’s story connects with you in any way, that can be the missing puzzle piece that helps you see your problem, your goal, your solution, much clearer.
