This month Paul looks at the challenges of creating the culture you want. Said another way, culture change. It is rare for me to have an initial conversation with prospective and existing clients without them using the term “culture.” Two calls already this morning and it is early.

This one is brilliant and important! He also will have everyone pulling out their old Geometry text book.
