How to Create the Killer Culture of Tomorrow

Pan Am, Kodak, and Blockbuster. What do these companies have in common?

This powerful webcast sheds light on how even category-dominating behemoths can succumb to the twin evils of complexity and complacency.

Progress doesn’t come from standing still. It’s time to Kill the Company… before someone else does. Participants will learn how to constantly reexamine their own businesses to keep innovation, and long-term success, on-track.

Instead of adding more complexity through expensive, sweeping culture change initiatives, Bodell shares how teams can actually simplify to achieve more. Leaders will learn why providing guardrails instead of handcuffs to their teams can reignite critical aptitudes (curiosity, inquiry, creative problem solving) and more. Rethink business as usual to reimagine the organization.

What You Will Learn


This engaging experience brings to life key concepts in Bodell’s latest book, Kill the Company:

  1. everyone is a change agent
  2. employees creating for the employee
  3. little changes, big impact.

Bodell quickly moves her message from insight to action by offering tangible ways to simplify your business and ignite innovation. While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
