We've all heard the stories about the companies that have ping-pong tables and gaming consoles in the break room, or that treat their staffs to weekly lunches and unlimited snacks. Google and Zappos are famous for the extras they provide to boost employee engagement. Leaders often hear these stories and think that just by adding some of these elements to their culture, the team will be more engaged, invested, and diligent. The truth is, it takes much more than a few perks to create, build, and sustain an amazing company culture. Attend this session to learn about:

  • The top four culture mistakes companies make
  • The importance of promoting a culture of failing forward vs. fear of failing
  • The difference between leading and managing people and teams
  • The role of play in improving engagement and profitability
