October 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT$10.00
Listen in to CLxLIVE, an online conversation* where culture builders can watch as leaders air their thoughts on the intersection of culture and business.
Research shows that without foresight and guidance, startup cultures weaken with growth. It’s hardly noticeable at first, but as the organization scales, employees loose touch with the who’s and what’s that make the organization work. If leaders aren’t intentional about culture as they scale, their organizations lose the core glue that can attract and retain passionate employees. In our October episode we will talk about how to be intentional about culture when you’re growing fast and trying to scale with Kat Steinmetz Director of Learning & Development at Stitch Fix and Andrew Chau Co-Founder, Boba Guys.
