Breakfast With Champions
Corporate culture has always been a critically important success factor for growth minded, emerging companies. The morning of April 26th, senior executives from the Dallas business community will gather for a morning of information and inspiration on the tremendous impact that exceptional corporate can have on any company, as it has on four industry leading Dallas-based organizations:
Colleen Barrett, President Emeritus of Southwest Airlines will provide insight into the book she just co-authored with Ken Blanchard, Lead with Luv (A Different Way to Create Real Success) and will share with us why she (and Southwest Airlines) believes “it pays to put your people first”. Colleen will also reveal what happened during the early days of Southwest that caused its culture to blossom and grow into one that many organizations continue to try to emulate.
Anthony “Tony” Parella, CEO of Shared Technologies and author of Fractured to Fortune did the unthinkable in leading his company from bankruptcy to being sold to a Fortune 150 company in only 5 years. Tony will share how changing the company culture made that transformation possible.
Carlos Sepulveda, President & CEO of Interstate Batteries believes that the CEO of every company influences the overall tone of that company’s culture; however, the CEO specifically owns the leadership’s culture, which in turn impacts the entire organization. The day that Carlos became CEO he sent an email to the entire Home Office sharing the “Five Requirements and One Standard” which sought to answer the hypothetical question a Team Member might ask; “what do I need to do to attain the highest position possible for me in this company?” Carlos revealed his philosophy from the very beginning that it’s not about ‘not doing anything wrong,’ but about ‘doing enough right’ at Interstate Batteries.
Beth Barrett, CEO of Delivery Limited, started her career at The Container Store where she built the award winning culture from ground up which culminated in The Container Store’s coveted status of “The Best company to Work for in America” by Fortune Magazine two years in row (1999 and 2000). She created an environment of trust based on a focused people strategy which broke all traditional rules of retail and HR, resulting in unprecedented low turnover, highly motivated employees and superior customer service. “
