John Colbert : WWO Podcast - Episode 10
Facilitating the Achievement of Human Potential.
John Colbert is a partner and director at Corporate Edge - A Company founded to facilitate the achievement of human potential. John and his colleagues work with companies and executives to work on their cultural alignment.
John and I discuss the importance of culture, how they help businesses establish what that culture is and culture - the infrastructure.
John's specific essay question was:
A common problem among large companies, associations, clubs and groups is their ability to ensure the original goals and viewpoints that served them so well remain steadfast as they grow. What is it about culture and focussing on building culture that can make that evolution less troublesome?
I asked John on the show because he is one of the most engaging people in my world, not just talking about self development but in his perspectives of his world.
Two of the best parts of this podcast were John discussing what he attempts to teach to his 12 months year old son and that which currently inspires him - the commitment in the current generation to performing social change.
