Podcast – Guest: Chris Edmonds – Cultivating Results

By Robert Kennedy III

Have you ever walked into a room and felt unwanted?  What about going into a store and feeling ignored? What about the opposite experience, going into a building and feeling like they expected your arrival?  I had that experience once when getting ready to lease an office space.  The day I arrived, there was a sign out front that said “Welcome, Robert Kennedy III.”

I felt like a champion.

Not every organization does this, however.  Why not?  Well, the culture of a company helps to dictate what they feel is important.  You might think that it obvious that the important person should be everyone who walks through the doors.  But, that isn’t always the case.
Culture makes a huge difference and it must be intentional.  Otherwise, it affects more than just your customers.  It affects your company results.
