Drive Business Growth with Brand, Culture and Loyalty


Ask most leaders and they’ll say they’ve got a great organizational culture. But dig a little deeper and the reality is, simply because people in a company say good morning to each other and aren’t berating each other, doesn’t mean you’ve got a true corporate culture of collaboration, compassion and, most importantly for your business, productivity. So, your culture – or your internal brand –  might not be as strong as you think.  BRAND Many leaders forget to include internal branding on their marketing radar. Yet, working on your internal brand is one of the most important first steps to take [...]

3 Ways to Drive Inclusiveness and Create Belonging Within Your Team


Unless you are working with robots (which is entirely possible) you are likely to work within a group of diverse individuals; all with unique personalities and skill sets. Folks often compare their work teams with the makeup of sports teams, and because we live in Canada, we’ll use hockey to set this one up.   A hockey team has a number of different roles and positions all responsible for a certain task on the ice. The first line centerman should be scoring goals, the big defensemen keeps the opposing team away from the net and the goalie keeps the puck out [...]

For others, this  shift has turned their life upside down, blurring the lines between home and work.  One thing we have learned is that no two situations are the same. Some people [...]
