Today, we’re continuing our new series on the “Eight Ways to Build a Flourishing Workplace Culture.” 

Each week, we’re giving you a close-up look at each of the eight factors that make up we call The FLOURISH Model.  In the next few minutes, you’ll see how The FLOURISH Model is key to building a healthier workplace culture that leads to greater organizational impact. 

In this podcast, we look at the second of the eight drivers that make up The FLOURISH Model. The second culture driver is called Life-Giving Work, and my guest has plenty to share with you about how Life-Giving Work is a key driver to help improve—and even transform--your workplace culture.  

Today we have the pleasure of talking with Vann EllisonCEO of  St. Matthew’s House, in Naples Florida.

Today, we’re doing something a little different I think will be fun. Our guest, today, is a very popular and respected leader, Steve Macchia. Steve is well-known author, and founder and  president of Leadership Transformations in Lexington, Massachusetts. What Steve has to share with us today about thriving, fantastic teams is pure gold. 

Steve is going to share with us the five vital leadership traits of becoming a healthy team.   

And what makes this podcast a little different, is that you, the listener, get to eavesdrop on a previous conversation with Steve. We’ve chosen the best of the best from this popular interview where Steve really puts his finger on what goes into productive, life-giving teams in a church, a parachurch organizationand a Christian-led company.

Today I’m reminded of “It’s a Wonderful Life", a trend-setting film, way ahead of its time. When it comes to trends, I appreciate what Director Frank Capra said, “Don’t follow trends, start trends.” 

 In the next few minutes I want to give you seven workplace trends that organizations are likely to start in 2019.
