How does Tangoe—a global organization with over 2,000 employees, who has acquired several organizations throughout its 20-year history—maintain, nurture, or alter its collective company culture? Before answering that, an organization must first discover its culture as it currently exists—without judgement. And that’s precisely what this podcast intends to do. Join us as we rediscover Tangoe's culture through a series of candid interviews with employees, clients, and other leaders and professionals outside of our organization.

    Tanner Steel is the Director of Client Experience at Lessonly, a cloud-based learning management system (LMS), and one of Tangoe’s vendors. Interestingly enough, Tanner is also a former MOBI employee (2013-2017) and a follower of the podcast. In this candid episode, Tanner and I discuss fatherhood, his passion for culture, his experience at MOBI, and why he ultimately left the organization to join Lessonly.

    S3 - Episode #13: Keep, Add, Remove

    On January 7, 2020, Bob invited me to Tangoe's Leadership Kickoff Meeting at the Hilton Parsippany in New Jersey, where nearly 40 leaders were in attendance, representing every department. The goal of the meeting was to launch the new year with a clear, collective direction, ensuring that all leaders and all departments were aligned with Tangoe’s 2020 objectives. In this episode, eight members of Tangoe's leadership team answer three simple questions: (1) What is one word to describe an element of our culture you would keep? (2) What is one word to describe an element of our culture you would add? (3) What is one word to describe an element of our culture we could, perhaps, do without?

    S3 - Episode #10: Healthy Vulnerability

    If you’re familiar with this podcast, then you know that most of the guests have been employees of Tangoe, the global Enterprise Technology Management company that I work for. But looking ahead, I will feature guests from several other organizations, professions, and industries, all with their own unique perspectives and contributions. This week, I’m happy to share my conversation with Nicole Jansen, keynote speaker, founder of Discover the Edge, host of the podcast Leaders of Transformation, and co-author of the book, "Power Up, Super Women." Although Nicole and I cover many topics in our conversation, the importance of vulnerability and the positive impact it can have on culture, both inside and outside of work, stuck out the most to me, hence the title of this episode.
