How many of us can really say “Thank God It’s Monday!? How many of us dread Mondays, going back to work and not really enjoy what we are doing?
Roxanne Emmerich believes that it does not have to be that way. She has worked for years helping organizations create cultures that allow people to come to work, authentically living and working on purpose. Sounds wonderful, so what is the secret?
In my interview with Roxanne, we explore the values that an organization has to embody to create an environment that is liberated, allowing employees the space to be themselves, to learn from mistakes, and fall forward. An organization that allows employees to work in a collaborative, engaging and energized environment that values the contribution of the individual and the collective.
In Roxanne’s book, “Thank God It’s Monday!: How to Create a Workplace You and Your Customers Love”, she tells real stories about real people working in organizations where the cultures need improvement, and other cultures that are inclusive and embrace the human capital.
Great organizations realize that the most important asset on the balance sheet are the valued employees. The employees that are making a contribution to the organization.
I recently read that the value of each Google employee was in the millions, and that the value of a GM employee was in the 100 of thousands. Obviously, we know which organization has created a culture where they value their employees, and when they come to work they say, “Thank God It’s Monday”.
