Welcome to Culture Matters! This monthly conversation is Hosted by Kelly Byrnes of Voyage Consulting and Kathy Holmes of Holmes Connections. Our mission is to help business leaders across the globe serve their organizations and people in an honorable, relevant way: by putting people first. An organization's culture is its shared values, attitudes, and actions. We are focused on all three and we know it is tough. Leadership is hard. Doing it right is harder. Doing it with relevance to today's needs and challenges is almost impossible. That is why we are gathering in this space. We believe in the impossible, and we know there are millions of leaders out there who believe it too. If you are ready to change the old way of leadership, join us! Out goes the "die before cry" mantra and in comes the genuine bonds between managers and people! Out goes the paper-pushing HR and in comes the people-centered HR! Out goes the inconsistency between words and policies and behaviors and in comes authenticity and integrity! It is all about people and workplaces because Culture Matters in business! If Culture Matters to you and your company, join the conversation.
