Posted by Walt Brown on May 27, 2020 2:06:00 PM

Over the course of the past 13 years, I’ve interacted with nearly 200 business owners who had questions about optimizing employee engagement within their organizations.

Why Your Operating System Needs to Be Organizational, Not Organic

Posted by Walt Brown on Mar 11, 2020 10:15:00 AM

In the pages of The Patient Organization, I laid out the 7 Question-7 Promise Framework, which allows everyone within your company to align themselves with your mission by deciding if they can answer “yes” to questions of belonging, belief, accountability, measurement, communication, development and balance.
