Stephen George kicks off The Culture Club, a series of conversations on the Good Leaders Podcast around culture, brought to you, by North American agency Blakely. In this episode, Stephen talks to Kesheyl Van Schilt, President & Senior Fundraiser and owner of Blakely, on the power of culture, how it can make the difference and what you can do to build and lead a positive culture where people thrive.
The Culture Club started as a panel session at IFC in October 2018 and was followed up by a panel session at AFP Toronto 2018. The sessions looked at how organisations build and support amazing cultures, encouraging the personalities of individuals and the organisations to emerge and that allows people to connect and align with core values and messages. This series on the Good Leaders Podcast continues that exploration, looking at the barriers and opportunities in a great culture, how power can make or break a culture, the impacts on fundraising, how brand can help or hinder, on aspiration, the behaviours needed and how to build a place where the culture becomes the catalyst for great work and change.
In this first episode, Kesheyl talks about the culture at Blakely, how they find the right people, how they mix values and skills to serve, how they can build results and impact when they work as partners with charities and how leadership can make the difference
