New book teaches leaders how addressing culture can launcher their business forward

AUSTIN, Texas [June 20, 2023] – The solution to human-centered issues is culture, and culture is all about people. Whether the goal is to get a business unstuck, take it to the next level, or generally create a more impactful environment, culture must be addressed. In her new Amazon Best-Seller The Culture Climb: How to Build a Work Culture that Maximizes Your Impact (Fast Company Press, June 20, 2023), author and Chief Vision Officer Jaime Taets help leaders understand and examine their work culture in a simple yet comprehensive way, discover how to use culture to grow a healthy and sustainable business, and push past all the theories about culture to help leaders actually do something about it.

“I hope that when you finish this book, you feel better than when you started because you have a little more clarity around the topic of culture, and you know your first next step,” said Taets. “It might challenge you or make you realize you have to stretch yourself, but I know on the other side is a path to being a better leader, leading a better organization, and creating more impact.”

For over a decade, Taets has been the go-to consultant for executive teams hoping to untangle their issues and improve their businesses—profits, strategies, and services—along the way. Readers will also learn about The Impact Model, which Jaime invented to depict all the working pieces that go into developing a strong culture. This model defines the checkpoints leaders need to reach as they climb the Culture Mountain, so they can get their businesses unstuck and improve their cultures step by step.

“If numbers are the science of a business, culture is the soul. The Culture Climb provides a road map for building an authentic, engaging, and values-driven culture to benefit a growing business. Understanding how culture influences a business is as critical to a modern-day leader as capabilities like financial acumen and hiring protocols.” 

Kristi Piehl, CEO and founder, Media Minefield 

“This book offers indispensable guidance to stay ahead of the competition and drive higher efficiency, profitability, and success through positive workplace culture initiatives that pay off tangibly. If your company or organization is struggling or just curious about improving workplace culture—The Culture Climb should be essential reading.”
