Creating a Healthy Corporate Culture with Hema Crockett

Creating a Healthy Corporate Culture with Roxanne Derhodge and Hema Crockett

Quote: “The way that we define culture is really thinking about it as the intersections of values, actions and behaviours.”  Hema Crockett

When I first met Hema, we discussed my soon-to-be-released book, ROR, Return on Relationships, Amplify Your Authentic Leadership to Build More Resilient Teams and the role she plays in her company as a resilient and authentic leader. As my book launch is fast approaching, I wanted to reintroduce you to Hema and the conversation we had about working with your team through a crisis.

As we’ve been moving through the pandemic, there’s been a greater demand for a shift in leadership.  Leaders find themselves needing to be more connected to their teams than ever before.  Meeting the needs of their employees in these tumultuous times has been a bigger challenge than it was before COVID started and retaining their top talent is essential.  On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we welcome Hema Crockett to share her thoughts and strategies on how to develop a healthier corporate culture while leading through a crisis.

Hema is a military spouse, entrepreneur, and recovering HR executive, who worked in the private sector as well as for the DOJ and State Department for 18 years before becoming an entrepreneur. She is the co-founder of Gig Talent, a modern talent collective connecting high-caliber HR consultants and leadership coaches with forward-thinking organizations.
