    ATD-GTC Coaching Community of Practice

    A Culture of Good

    Culture of Good is a company that was originally designed to create or reignite a company’s culture and their own sense of purpose and fulfillment with their employees, their clients and their communities.  As a consultant who works with a company’s leadership team(s), Shannon Rose has become an early adopter of Culture of Good in a Box.  This is a tool that a facilitator or coach can easily adopt and utilize as a leadership tool.  This box of tools will help you work with leadership to find a corporate cause (CSR) that is right for an organization, gain buy-in from stakeholder(s), operationalize an organization’s Cause and Doing Good platform, and launch a Big Good event.

    In this session we will touch on:

    • Culture of Good history and why I became an early adopter
    • The beginnings of how to utilize and facilitate Culture of Good in a Box
    Our Presenter: Shannon Rose started her career at a small tech company where she quickly realized her knack for technology and business solutions.  Her drive to know global business strategies became apparent when she found the localization industry and realized that business was a global platform for positive change.  She found that her skill-set naturally gravitated towards the life science, healthcare and medical technology industries, which were prime for change and efficiencies.  Shannon Rose has worked in international product launch for the past 15 years building, supporting and motivating global teams of high-performers to be engaged in their work, their lives and their communities.  Today, Shannon Rose carries on her passion of igniting positive change through global business strategies as Founder and Principal Consultant of Shannon Rose Consulting.  She is an avid combat Muay Thai student, enjoys camping with her family and experiencing as much variety as she can!
