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.

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.
