Hybrid Practice: The Importance of Creating a Values-Based Culture 1.0 AIA CEU

A Values-Based Culture lays the foundation to building a firm that is resilient and sustainable over time.



The foundation to creating a practice that is adaptable to whatever the world throws your way is by intentionally developing a values-based culture. Good culture encourages respectful relationships where everyone knows and is excited about the common goals, they are working toward enabling the firm’s success.
