Every good organization has a strategic plan. However, the success of that plan is highly dependent on your organization’s culture. A strong culture motivates employees to work harder, find ways past obstacles, and treat each other with respect.  Presenter, Douglas Crane will share how the Palm Beach County Library System is using these strategies towards the goal of being the best place their employees ever worked.
