Turning Your Employees Into Owners
Phone: 314.283.1589

Does the worker or the leadership define the corporate culture? Historically, the different generational norms have greatly influenced the corporate culture.  For the veteran it was hard work, respect, and sacrifice.  For the baby boomer it was being a workaholic and achieving personal fulfillment.  Generation X was self-reliance and skepticism and generation Y was multi-tasking and goal oriented.  The millennial skill set is also having a profound change on business culture and management.

Eliot Frick recently spoke at the TedX Gateway Arch on business’ need to change to save itself.  He explains how holocracy is one new business model that is taking business forward and adapting to change.  I encourage you to watch this truly incredible presentation.

Geese from Bottles: Saving Business by Making It More Human

Free advice is properly priced – take what you like – leave what you don’t.

I have the privilege of being around some really amazing people. I learn from them every day. These little nuggets may be about leadership, business, industry, economics and family. I will use this blog to share these nuggets and link to them when possible on what I have found meaningful. I have also collected a great deal of these nuggets over the years and will dig into the archives from time to time. I will try to avoid standing on my soap box, but please forgive me if I have a weak moment.

I open the Ardent blog to others. I strongly urge you to submit your own blogs for publication and comment on those posted.
