February 23rd: Crafting Culture in your Startup

We first met Dave Kashen a few years ago after he sold the startup he co-founded. He had just started coaching fellow startup execs on scaling and building their businesses. But what was unique about Dave was his precise thinking about culture and values, two of the squishiest and most important concepts for any leader in a startup. Since then, he’s been advising some of the best startup teams in Silicon Valley and San Francisco, so we’ve asked him to come and talk about the importance of and–more importantly–how to build extraordinary cultures at startups.

The Values-Driven Startup: Building an extraordinary culture
Drawing insights from Google, Facebook, Netflix, Zappos, Eventbrite, Southwest Airlines, Trulia, JetBlue, Meebo, Joie De Vivre, and many others, startup coach Dave Kashen will share a methodology for building and scaling an amazing, high performance culture that will maximize your chances of success, and help you enjoy the journey.

As co-founder of Wellsphere, a fast-growing online health startup, Dave experienced firsthand the challenges of creating a great culture amidst the demands of building a company from the ground up. After Wellsphere was acquired, he took a step back to figure out what he really wanted to do with his life, and realized that his life’s purpose is to help people be fulfilled and increase the level of well-being in our society. Seeing business as a platform for increasing fulfillment and well-being, he made it his mission to inspire, empower and teach entrepreneurs to build companies that bring out the best in their people.

Through his firm Quantum Leading, Dave has spent the last few years working with startup CEOs and their teams to help them to intentionally and systematically build their cultures, and develop as authentic, inspired, values-driven leaders. He co-founded the Unleashed conference series, bringing together hundreds of startup CEOs with leaders who’ve created some of the world’s best cultures to learn about and discuss how to build workplaces people love. Dave also writes about building startup culture at awesomeculture.com.

    If you know that your family issues aren’t in dire need of immediate attention, try to set
    up a time after work or on weekends to fix
    them as soon as you can. Affordable housing,
    outstanding healthcare, diverse cultural influence, top-notch medical care,
    and a vast array of activities make this a perfect place to raise a family.
    Possible dimension arrangements: 11 to 12 feet in width, 15 to 16 feet in length (165 to 192 sf).

    For one thing, it is a time to share your views and feelings.

    He also lectures frequently on a national basis, including
    speeches before the American Law Institute – American Bar Association (ALI-ABA),
    the International Forum, the Association for Advanced Life Underwriting (AALU), the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT), and numerous life insurance companies, brokerage firms and trade associations.
    It is also an opportunity to discuss important character traits with them like honesty,
    conflict resolution, strategy, compromise and how to be a graceful loser –
    or a graceful winner, even.

    They are doing not consider the dimensions, nature, and state of
    a business. 3 Build your marketing pipeline to increase your sales
    pipeline and focus on improving lead management and lead nurturing
    process. They provide leads and you just close the sales, offering a
    discount to their list.

    If you are going to let your prospects sample your product, then this will eventually
    become costly; you will have to introduce the business and products to many people.

    Alternately, I may have been heading to an English class, where I would learn concepts that would ultimately help me to become a better writer.
    I mean benefits such as a stronger immune system, improved
    stamina, better oxygenation throughout the body and enough free radicals that it
    could possible decrease your risk of many cancers and other debilitating health conditions.
