I sat down with Lara Casey, Cultivate What Matters, to discuss intentional ways to cultivate your team culture, evolving leadership roles, setting goals as a team, and how thinking big picture is important to your legacy.
If you are a small business owner who is building a team or in a season of team transitions this episode is for you!

[00:50] What steps do you take to be intentional in hiring for the CWM team?
[04:23] What specific boundaries or practices have you established to allow everyone to excel in their roles, especially when you have a tight-knit team and work out of your home?
[11:25] What is the average tenure for your team members? How has the culture you cultivated contributed to that?
[18:50] What have you had to recognize and change about yourself in order to better serve your team as the business has grown?
[24:21] You mention frequently the positive impact your monthly C12 meetings have on your business. What was your leadership like before vs after attending? Where do you think you would be if you hadn’t joined?
[29:25] You share your Team Summits on social media. Will you describe your process for setting business goals with your team?
[32:20] I believe you have team members lead individual sessions during the team summit. What benefits have you seen from having them lead a session?
[34:34] How do you respond when critical business goals aren’t met?
[39:04] You mentioned in a recent podcast episode of Cultivate Your Life that what matters when making hard decisions is “profit for people”. This was also noted in a recent interview for Chapel Hill magazine. When you are 80 and looking back at your time leading the women who are part of the CWM family, how would you hope they describe your legacy?
[42:30] When seeking leadership guidance and support, what is your process? What resources or tools do you recommend?
