Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”:
In this episode of IAMCEO podcast, Kristi Pastore, the CEO of Culture Works, speaks about how she helps businesses reach their full potential by aligning their purpose, people, and processes.
Culture Works is a San Diego-based company that focuses on creating dynamic operations within a company through its culture. Kristi and her team work with small to mid-sized clients who might not have an HR department or only one person fulfilling this role. They aim to understand these companies' purpose and how they align with their employees, improving their HR and talent management strategies to facilitate growth.
Key insights from the podcast include:
CEO Story: A long-time passion for people and business led Kristi to the field of HR and eventually to start Culture Works. She saw a significant need in the market to develop middle management and to support companies that constantly evolve in their thought process on people and build.
CEO Hack: Kristi uses a family vision board both at home and at work to keep track of her goals and to inspire herself to keep pushing forward.

So we look at all three different levels. We look at their talent, their culture, and their HR in those different facets, and really try to understand where they're at as a life cycle of the company and how we can fit in.

Hello. Hello. Hello. This is Gresham from the IAMCEO podcast, and I appreciate you listening to this episode. If you've been listening this year, you know that we hit 1600 episodes at the beginning of this year. We're doing something a little bit different where we're repurposing our favorite episodes around certain categories, topics, or as I like to call them business pillars that we think are going to be extremely impactful for CEOs, entrepreneurs, and business owners, or what I like to call CB nation architects who are looking to level up their organizations.
This month, we are focused on innovation, disruption, women entrepreneurship, DEI, gig economy, remote economy, even the cannabis industry. Think about these industries and these disruptive technologies that really sometimes aren't as disruptive but there are people that are just paying attention to what the market needs, and they're providing that. So really think about the things that are quote and quote outside of the norm, but really help entrepreneurship to grow and fully develop.
I think it's an extremely exciting time when you're talking about any type of innovation or disruption, because I think that there are so many opportunities and needs that aren't felt that are starting to be filled by different groups, different organizations, or even different industries. So what I want you to do is sit back and enjoy this special episode of the IAMCEO podcast.
