About Rebecca Friese
A Workplace Crusader with more than twenty years of experience in change management leadership, Rebecca Friese transforms organizations. By identifying outdated practices from the ground floor to the boardroom, Rebecca helps everyone, from Fortune 500 behemoths to hopeful start-ups, build the capacity to implement market-leading cultural changes. Having taken on every role from employee to a consultant to Vice President of People, she knows what it takes to chart a new course for talent management.
Now, Rebecca is on a mission to help organizations not just be better places to work, but to be exceptionally innovative, engaging, and forward-thinking environments that inspire and motivate. She’s seen what happens when work sucks for people—when top-performing employees become dejected, disengaged, and ultimately leave organizations, leaving leaders scratching their heads at why this happens more often than expected and how it, eventually, affects their bottom line. What matters to employees may be very different from what managers think. In this book, Rebecca provides a step-by-step approach to creating a good culture, making an impact on people strategy, and ultimately the success of each organization.
About The Good Culture
Having a positive, interactive corporate culture is something that many leaders strive for, but getting there (and staying there) isn’t just about feel-good policies or Ping-Pong-table incentive tactics. The power of a Good Culture is something to behold, and the cost of not creating one may be more significant than you realize.
In ‘The Good Culture: The Leader's Guide to Creating A Workplace That Doesn't Suck,' Rebecca Friese, cofounder of FLYN, shares the wisdom of her twenty-plus years of creating organizational change across the spectrum of companies—from hopeful start-ups to Fortune 500s—helping you to manage your culture and lead positive change, day by day. This book will guide you in figuring out what works for your company in real life, and how to chuck out what doesn’t, to bring people into the fold and support cultural growth, all the way to the top.

“Thank you so much for your wisdom, enthusiasm, open heart and open mind today. Your presentation helped to spark a determination in me to truly find and carry out my brand. You made me think about things in a way that I have not done. I'm so excited and energetic about the future not just professionally but also personally.”
