A thriving culture and the right leadership is crucial for business success.
Two common themes that emerge from conversation centered around growth, startups, scale, and business success are culture and leadership. In our panel discussion on Cultivating Thriving Leadership, common themes from everyone centered around the importance of cultivating a thriving culture and developing leaders, while also considering business implications. See some of the top takeaways from our panelists:
Katie Hughes | Partner from General Catalyst - "Shared language & frameworks are used to create clarity & fluidity."

Anna Binder | Head of People Operations at Asana - "Couple experience with training when promoting people into leadership roles."

Culture and leadership are crucial elements to the success of any company. Recruiting is an example of a crucial organizational function that requires attention to culture and leadership. Recruiting is more so than not an expensive, time-consuming, and hard undertaking. Once new people are invited to join the company (and accept the offer), onboarding needs to be tight. Setting the right tone for new employees around behavioral expectations, culture, and values is needed to ensure long-term new hire success. Having a well-honed leader at the helm of recruiting and onboarding provides thoughtful and intentional integration of new people into the company. All in all, culture and leadership need to be considered to actualize a successful business.
