Steve Rohr joins Jess to discuss ongoing changes in a) how we judge what a brand stands for and b) how to invite people to join our company to deliver the brand promise.
The mission of a company is more critical today than ever before. With a shift from a desire from possessing something from and identifying with a brand, to choosing brands that believe in the same things we do … how we used to define a brand has changed. The actions of a single individual impacts both the perception of what a brand stands for, and the “real” mission being evaluated by the actions of the people working at a company.
Starting The Conversation
- The actions of a single individual impacts the perception of what a brand stands for and the ‘real’ mission that is evaluated by the actions of the people working at a company.
- How do we show up as ourselves AND keep in mind what’s best for the company we lead within?
