Finding Your “Great Gift” and Developing Company Culture with Carrie Kish

In today’s episode, I have a friend of mine from my Los Angeles days, Carrie Kish. Carrie is the partner and CEO at Culture Sync, which is a management consulting firm that specializes in leadership development, and cultural change. She’s got over 20 years experience of consulting and leadership trainer and coach.

In this episode, we talk about how Carrie is able to handle multiple businesses, what her “great gift” is, and how can a person find their own.

She gives us great insight on how she develops rapport with people using language, what her research shows on why some companies outperform others, and how to think about money.
