Toxic workplace cultures are well-defined and ravaged workers are leaving in pursuit of better places to work. Would you like to make your culture the place everybody wants to join? You do not need to be a formal leader with a fancy title to have a profound impact because change happens one person or moment at a time. Culture is always changing and evolving. Our job is to continually adapt, respond, learn, adjust, and keep going.

Get playful and learn new ideas to invigorate energy and build more humane places to gather.
