The Culture Chat Podcast: Going Beyond Lip Service to Inclusion
In this episode, we chat with Joe Gerstandt, keynote speaker, thought leader, advisor, consultant and sage in the world of inclusion. Charlie and Joe discuss how poorly misunderstood inclusion and diversity really are in the workplace and Joe clarifies how companies that "get it" are using it as a true competitive advantage. Saying inclusion is important to us (and we all say it) is one thing; but Joe gives us some tips for measuring and monitoring it so that we know it’s having the intended impact. Get this and more from this month’s episode of the Culture Chat Podcast. Listen to (and/or download) to learn more.
The landscape has shifted from looking for that long-term, sustainable competitive advantage to managing more of a portfolio of “transient advantages,” moving from one short-lived advantage to the next. This approach is not only exhausting; it cannot be sustained. What if an intentionally managed workplace culture could become your one true competitive advantage? We think it can be.
We can already hear the grumbles. “Yeah, but we’re not Zappos and we’re not Netflix.” This is true, and, for the record we are not recommending that you try to become them...because you cannot. You just can’t copy a culture. You have to create it.
