Hey, what’s up, everyone! Welcome back to another info-packed episode of the Daily New Year’s podcast. If you’re new to the show, we cover all things goal setting, personal development, mentorship, mindset, productivity & organization, and leadership.
Joining us today is Adam Sinkus, and he is bringing us a wealth of knowledge around the topic of Culture-Driven Leadership. Good culture and excellent leadership in the workplace is very near and dear to my heart because we spend a huge percentage of our lives at work, and if the culture is bad, then life can be truly miserable.
Culture means a lot of different things to a lot of different people, but today, Adam is going to demystify what it means to have good culture. He’s also going to explain what culture is NOT, how to go about building an amazing culture, and so much more.
If you’re a leader at any level (and I believe everyone is), then this episode is absolutely for you!
