Maintaining a dynamic and vibrant organizational culture has never been more important or difficult. For leaders like Phillippe Lanier, who oversees all activities for EastBanc, a 600-person global real estate, retail, and technology company, building and empowering his team is a central focus and that involves letting go and an emphasis on being of service. In this episode of Prism of Value, Phillippe discusses his approach and philosophy of managing this family-owned company, navigating through the pandemic, and laying the foundation for the future.
At a workshop I facilitated for nonprofit leaders on message development and communications, I was reminded once again of the critical relationship between organizational strategy, culture and communications. The workshop hosted by Coalition for Nonprofit Housing & Economic Development (CNHED) in conjunction with Capital Area Asset Builders (CAAB) came out of a discussion a few months ago about the potential to create a campaign to heighten the awareness of policy makers, funders and other audiences about the huge and growing gaps in the financial security of Washington, DC families.
