The Jake and Gino Podcast: Tangible Steps to Improving Company Culture

On the latest episode of the Jake and Gino Podcast, CultureWorx’ CEO, Dr. Donte Vaughn, discussed the state of company culture today—breaking down the tangible steps leaders can take to proactively operationalize company culture and increase employee engagement. 

With nearly 20 years of experience in industries ranging from industrial to retail, Dr. Vaughn has seen how company culture influences the roles and responsibilities of every employee in an organization and how powerful it can be when measured and managed with intention.

In his Amazon #1 Best-Selling book, From CULTURE to CULTURE, Dr. Vaughn and co-author Randall Powers present the Culture Performance Management™ (CPM™) methodology—a systematic approach to defining, implementing, measuring, and managing company culture from the top down. CPM™ offered by CultureWorx cultivates standard language, understanding, consciousness, and actions around a desired company culture, followed by ongoing measurement and management through software solutions. In the full podcast episode, Dr. Vaughn shares the system’s seven pillars: Select, Define, Connect, Learn, Practice, Measure, and Refine, giving leaders expert insight and tangible actions for improving—and sustaining—company culture.
