In Today’s Episode:

  • Building a strong company culture requires transparency, collaboration, and change management. It is important to involve employees in decision-making processes and give them a sense of ownership.
  • The decision-making process should be guided by the question, "Is it the right thing for the customer? Is it the right thing for the business? Are you willing to be accountable for your decision?"
  • Empowering employees to make decisions based on their expertise and experience can lead to better outcomes and increased productivity.
  • The flywheel concept can be used as a tool to guide business decisions and maintain focus. It involves identifying key levers or dominoes that lead to success and continuously improving upon them.
