Without a doubt, your mind is heavy with questions right now about how your organization is going to emerge from this crisis. Could your organization emerge from this stronger than ever? The word crisis has origins linked to the Latin word certus, which means to sift or separate. Like panning for gold, a crisis filters…

One orders a Tito’s and soda, one orders a Diet Coke, one orders a Cabernet, one orders a Miller Light, one orders a Corona, no lime. The conversation flows. There is always a lot to catch up on. “What do you guys think about culture? It’s become a real buzzword in other industries,” Tito’s asks…
