Creating An Exceptional Culture with Galen Emanuele

Grab your pen and paper, because in this insightful conversation, today’s special guest, Galen Emanuele, will be sharing plenty of golden nuggets of wisdom around culture and ways to be the kind of leader that your business and your team need you to be so that you have a business that gives you your life back. Don’t be surprised if you feel compelled to take some notes!

Galen Emanuele reframes the way teams and organizations establish culture, communicate, and perform together in business. His unique content is full of actionable tools to massively improve team dynamics, communication, EQ, and generate high-level performance and engagement.

A highly sought-after international speaker, with clients including Microsoft, Safeway, and NASA, Galen is also a world-class improviser, having taught and performed improv for many years including touring with the cast from Whose Line Is It Anyway?

An authentic, captivating teacher and performer, Galen has a unique gift of being able to cut through the noise and fluffy language to translate broad concepts into simple, practical skills and mindsets. Developed over thousands of hours on stage working with audiences and teams Galen’s profound truths and tangible takeaways permanently change the way humans show up in business and life.

Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production in collaboration with Small Business Consulting Group.

Show Highlights:

  • Galen discusses his propensity of natural curiosity and his passion for, and definition of, culture.
  • Establishing the right kind of culture requires a strategic approach, just like any other part of your business where you desire success.
  • Take the values that you have and translate them into actual behaviors and mindsets.
  • Galen explains the concept around the “Yes, and” culture of cohesive, highly-engaged awesomeness and how it applies to business.
  • There is a surprising and profound parallel between “improv” and being an effective leader.
  • If you want to be impressive as a leader, make your team look brilliant, and make your client look brilliant.
  • The Choice Map™ is a powerful mindset tool with an immediate impact that Dr. Sabrina shares with clients at Tap the Potential. It teaches business owners how to get off the “judger path” and onto the “learner path”.
  • Galen discusses the huge impact that the simple act of asking for feedback has on a leader.
  • What the phrase “tell me more” can teach you.
  • Consider how you can set your team members up for success.
  • Ask your team members what support they need from you.
  • Galen suggests asking these same three relationship-building questions of your direct reports every quarter during a 20-minute meeting: What am I doing great? What is my biggest area of opportunity to improve? What would a 10/10 look like for me?

About The Author

Dr. Sabrina Starling, The Business Psychologist and international best-selling author of the How to Hire the Best series and The 4 Week Vacation™, is the founder of Tap the Potential and host of the Profit by Design podcast. At Tap the Potential, we work to free business owners from the constant demands of a growing business.

We believe work supports life, not the other way around. Clients in our Better Business, Better Life coaching program have more time for what matters most and more money in their bank account than they’ve ever had. Next, we send them off on a 4 Week Vacation™ to celebrate their hard-earned journey to take their life back!

Dr. Sabrina and her team at Tap the Potential are on a mission to change the story of entrepreneurship from one of long hours, grinding it out, to one of sustainably profitable businesses that support and enhance life. The Tap the Potential Solution™ and our Tap the Potential Family of Business Owners are disrupting small business as usual. We are on our way to making the Tap the Potential Solution™ the mainstream model for growing business.

By 2023, 150 Tap the Potential clients will have taken 4 Week Vacations. These are the trailblazers, role modeling what’s possible for entrepreneurs. In many entrepreneurial circles, it is becoming more and more common for one entrepreneur to ask another, “Have you taken a 4 Week Vacation™?” (as opposed to asking “How many employees do you have?” or “What is your annual revenue?”). Taking a fully unplugged 4 Week Vacation is rapidly becoming the recognized symbol of entrepreneurial success.

Never one to accept the status quo or back down from a challenge, Dr. Sabrina’s How to Hire the Best series grew from her desire to solve the toughest hiring challenges interfering with her clients’ growth and profitability. What sprang from her experience working with entrepreneurs in rural areas catapulted her into becoming the world’s leading expert in attracting top talent in small businesses—no matter what hiring challenges those businesses are facing—and earned Tap the Potential’s reputation as the go-to resource for entrepreneurs committed to creating Great Places to Work with thriving coaching cultures and highly engaged team members working from strengths.

As The Business Psychologist, and with her years of driving profit in small businesses, Dr. Sabrina knows what it takes to find, keep, and motivate exceptional performance out of your biggest investment—team members.
