How much time do you spend working? How much time is left to do other things important to you besides work? In America, we are notorious for working more and taking less vacation. Yet in today's world where we are constantly connected, more people and organizations are sharing research that the impact on us is not positive.

Tim Ferris may advocate a 4 hour work week, but let's get real. Most of us spend 1/3 or more of our life working. As leaders it's our role to help make work be a positive contribution to our lives and that of our employees.

Culture plays a significant role in shaping the quality of the work experience. Today we're going to explore various dimensions of culture and what you can do to make the 1/3 I mentioned earlier a more inspiring, transformative experience.

I'm talking with author, musician, consultant Chris Edmonds. His new book is The Culture Engine: A Framework for Driving Results, Inspiring Your Employees, and Transforming Your Workplace. We'll explore some themes on culture in our conversation today.
