An employee mass exodus is taking place – right in front of our eyes. And it isn’t because of a so-called labor shortage. Instead, we have a RESPECT shortage – and we have far too many workplace cultures that suck.

Mark guides leaders to create a purposeful, positive, and productive work culture He also helps leaders understand (and then improve) their current level of Workplace Intelligence (WQ) – a metric that helps leaders understand how their teams work best together.
- Through coaching and mentoring, Mark empowers professionals, from college graduates to CEOs, to realize their career – and their voice – matters, and I help them get their voice heard.

Ross and Mark talk about leaders, soul, workplace, comparing values, foundational principles, purpose, productivity, results,  company culture, mindset, entrepreneurship and sub cultures. The pair also discuss large scale layoffs, behaviour, teams, getting referrals, adaptability, epiphanies, vulnerability, guilt stifling creativity, destructive behaviours, tolerating, company values and productivity.
