Changing workplace culture is difficult, regardless of the size of the company. Starting as Moz’s eighth employee in 2007, CEO Sarah Bird has led the company to growth, implementing a culture focused on transparency, diversity, and bias to action leadership. But as she told us at TINYcon 2018, it wasn’t easy.
As a leader, it’s important that you find ways to provide employees with a healthy work-life balance while also ensuring that the company is performing well and meeting goals. In striving to help employees achieve work-life balance, you must look to strike your own sense of balance between the company’s bottom line and employee morale.
When Howard Behar joined Starbucks in 1989, he never fathomed the trajectory the company would eventually take. He viewed the Seattle-based business as a welcome escape from the company culture of Corporate America, thinking that the chain would perhaps expand regionally. Yet as the company expanded, Behar’s leadership and emphasis on cultural values has proven integral to its success. His values-based leadership allowed for the growth of employee-created ideas - such as the Frappuccino - that may have not otherwise existed if not for his open approach to company culture and leadership.
