What defines an organization's culture?

How can companies shape workplace culture? That's a question that's been asked over and over again not only by leaders in large corporations, but by small business owners and almost everyone in between.

Culture, which sets the standard for how employees and managers interact with each other, is an important factor affecting an organization's financial performance.

Dr. Bill Howatt, the chief research and development officer of work force productivity with Morneau Shepell and a partner here at Vision Coaching, recently explored this dilemma and has some answers. 

An organization's culture, according to Dr. Bill, is defined by four things; i t's people, awareness, accountability and  action.

Who do you call when disaster strikes?

From my interview with Chris Long p ublished 
January 2017 in the  Telegraph-Journal.

Chris Long and his team are there when you really need them and often his customers call when they are in dire straits. They are the disaster restoration specialists at Saint John's  ServiceMaster Restore and ServiceMaster Clean. 

The franchise employs more than 40 people and uses state-of-the-art cleaning and restoration equipment, proprietary products and also provide ongoing technician training to bring peace of mind when disaster strikes.

Chris, the president, wasn't always in the disaster restoration business. He spent 15 years as the district sales manager for  Labatt Breweries in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island before purchasing the Saint John ServiceMaster franchise. This experience at Labatt set the groundwork for his entrepreneurial venture.
