336. Creating a Winning Team Culture

Business success is a result of many critical factors, one of which is having a winning team culture. In this solo episode of the Savvy Dentist Podcast, Dr Jesse Green talks about what it means to be working with people who know, understand, and embody the values you have set for your business. Values help you identify whether they fit your business culture or not. A winning team culture is about fit and alignment. You want to have a team that is aligned, productive and harmonious because they will help you achieve your vision.
