EPISODE TITLE: POSITIVE IMPACT OF PURPOSE
For Kiersten Rippeteau, purpose, meaning, and company culture aren’t just lofty words but high-impact actions. Unfortunately for many business leaders, they are just word-du-jour. They toss them around in the hopes something sticks. She, however, believes that every business can have a powerful positive impact on its employees, customers, and community. And for nearly 15 years, she has been helping leaders do exactly that – connect the dots between the business strategy, mission, and people. You are not going to want to miss this episode.
