Dave Kashen's Blog: the awesome culture blog

My friend Dave Kashen has started blogging. Dave is a successful entrepreneur, a great guy and someone who cares deeply about people and creating a terrific working environment. When we first started Ben's Friends patient support networks, I sought Dave's advice. He was incredibly helpful and supportive.

Here's a cool little snippet from his first blog post. It's one of the most important things you can have when you start something. Before every Ben's Friends virtual meeting, Eric Kroll, a partner in Ben's Friends, leads a discussion of our shared values.
the awesome culture blog:

"A defined set of values will serve as the basis for ‘institutionalizing the culture’; putting in just the right amount of structure at the appropriate time to ensure the culture you intend scales as the company grows."
