What gets leveraged gets learned.

VCP, follows the journey of two top-level executives, Guy and Kathleen, who seek ways to revolutionize the work culture of their companies in separate industries. The book tackles issues surrounding corporate culture, identifying workable organizational values, employee satisfaction, and finding an effective solution to driving employee engagement. It is a must-read for executive leaders of large, medium, and small-sized corporations, directors and managers, human resource business partners, and even frontline employees who wish to educate themselves on how to improve their workplace culture.

  1. The challenges that come with sidestepping a value conversation in organizations.
  2. The opportunities that arise when organizations truly embody core values and the impact they have on a desired organizational culture.

Values.Culture.Period. is packed with lessons for all types of change – culture, leadership, team – that leaders at all levels of an organization can immediately apply the book’s wisdom into impactful leadership and employee engagement.
