Why Kumbaya and trust falls won't work and what's needed to avoid toxic cultures ft. Glenn Bergsma

Glenn Bergsma, the Org Whisperer from Evolve Leadership, knows a thing or two about organizational design. His secret? Deep listening, foresight, and adaptability. Leaders need to play the video, think ahead, and identify potential problems before they become roadblocks. And forget relying on external consulting firms! Instead, develop org design skills in-house, build a culture of change, and be flexible, adaptable, and forward-thinking.

The traditional org chart is something I've struggled with. After seeing how the many functional roles could be sliced and diced, Functionly helped me radically optimize the people and workflows in my company.


Arnie Boyarsky

SugarShot Technology
