Culture Hacking

Culture Hacking a way for anyone at any level to shift the culture. As Culture Strategist for Zappos.com and the manager of Zappos Insights, Robert learned how to create change fast by using the power of hacking for good and applying them to culture. Robert leaves the group with three high leverage tools that can be used immediately to create long-term change. Audiences are excited to become culture hackers and often report making changes the very next day. 

Built for Growth: The Values-Based Company

Engaged employees are productive, efficient, and have a great time. This means low turnover, and highly motivated employees you don’t have to micro manage. Values-based companies have employees who manage and motivate themselves. Robert shares stories of the strength of the core values at Zappos.com (A company that became the #6 Best Place to Work in America and #1 in Customer Service), then shares the science behind why they work so well. Once you learn the secrets behind how values work, you will know how to shape culture. Robert gives the group a process to use in discovering and then implementing the values across the organization.

Agile Culture:  How IT/Dev/Ops drive company-wide change

Agile, Lean, Scrum. It’s all great, but how do you get the culture behind it? And then how do you get them working as one, across teams? Robert Richman has worked with companies such as Intuit and CapitalOne on their agile implementations and has discovered what it takes to align teams. What’s great for the people hearing it is that they walk away with the knowledge that it’s actually tech teams who drive culture. And they are given the tools and hacks to make culture change possible.

Game-Changing Innovation

Innovate or die. The pace of change has become so rapid that even the best products today may not be here tomorrow (Tivo has stayed around as a word, but not as a brand). The companies that understand what their brands are truly about will channel that power into their new products and services and remain the champions. Robert shares the counter intuitive principles that actually drive innovation, leaving audiences inspired to take a new approach that is not only inspiring, but a lot more fun.
