It’s easy to slip into culture stagnation, and once you know you’re there it time to focus on your culture and build it to thrive.

  • You know you need to work on your organization’s culture consistently
  • However, there are obstacles to doing this:
    • Meeting quarterly goals 
    • Servicing your clients
    • The seasonal cycles of business (e.g. open enrollment for insurance)
    • Regulatory compliance cycles
  • Because of these obstacles, your organization gets in a rut and the culture stagnates: 
    • Employees are bored and go about their routine lacking in enthusiasm 
    • Innovation crushing because employees think of new ideas and new ways of business 
    • Leadership isn’t inspired to look for new ideas
    • Service crushing: customer services issues start happening because employees are going through the motions
    • Your best employees start finding other opportunities (turnover)
      • You’re organization loses the institutional knowledge that they possess
    • It’s hard to attract top talent 
      • Your employees don’t talk about their workplace (or don’t talk positively about it)
      • They don’t refer your organization to others to work there

That's what we're here for

A Message from Stephanie

I love what I do. Very simply, when companies I work with report high employee satisfaction, great employee retention and loyalty – when they achieve, and even surpass their goals, I succeed too.

Call it living vicariously if you want to.  It doesn’t matter to me.  What matters is that every company and its employees enjoy professional growth and development.  It’s not about hearing a keynote, participating in a workshop or receiving coaching that’s forgotten as soon as it’s over.  It’s about lifetime change. I believe I’m on this earth to help others.  Why would you care about that?  Because my drive to help you can’t be manufactured.  It’s a completely organic element that you need to make your business a success. 

People are the least disposable asset your company will ever have.  I’ve been there too – I’ve worked in toxic environments with bullies, and in joyful workplaces with inspiring leadership. I take the latter every time – and so will your employees.

I know this because NO business succeeds in a completely isolated vacuum.   The only thing that you’ll find in a vacuum is dust.  OK, maybe the occasional button, and your dog’s chew toy that’s been missing since 1982.

But you get my point.

I love what I do – I create companies that are Built to Thrive®.

The fine print:

Just a tidbit of information I’d like to share.

While Stephanie Angelo is not a particularly common name, I’m not the only Stephanie Angelo out there. There have been occasions where my name was confused with other Stephanie Angelo’s. It has been attached to a couple articles that were about somebody else and not me. In one case an individual took my headshot, for an article about somebody else, and added a hyphenated last name after Angelo. Angelo happens to be my married name.
