Change Your Corporate Culture - Without Nagging

By Ed Muzio, CEO of Group Harmonics


Ed MuzioOur new house has a breakfast bar just after you walk in the front door, tempting you to drop anything you're carrying as you enter the house. This area is quick to collect keys, magazines and toys, making it an eye sore to anyone walking in the door.  It quickly became my mission to keep that counter clear.
