Human Connection Drives Business Performance

Cadence Bank Podcast: In Good Companies

There is no P&L statement for well-being, but we all know a great team when we're on one. So, what’s the secret? How do leaders build a business culture where people feel good and work well together? How can companies make sure that their people show up every day as the best version of themselves? “With trust and connection,” says David Mead.

David is an international business speaker, leadership builder and co-author of the bestselling book Find Your Why. For a decade he has toured the world, advising over 300 companies across 21 countries on how to bring purpose to their business. In this episode, he tells us how humanity can drive a high-impact team.

Together, we reflect on what makes a good experience in the workplace; we find out what great leaders have in common; and we consider the best ways to communicate and collaborate as a team. Plus, David shares his recipe for success, which boils down to three key ingredients: honesty, humility, and humanity.

So put your trust in David and Patrick, press play, and embark on a journey to make business better for everyone.

Meet the Speaker

David Mead HeadshotDavid Mead, Keynote speaker, Listener, Implementer

I want to live in a world where trust is our default setting - where we show up with the intent to connect, lift and serve. Where we consider others’ interests as much as our own. I help leaders and their teams build and maintain cultures based on that ideal. Trust leads to higher performance, increased retention, well-being and a more meaningful human experience.

Through talks, workshops and implementation experiences, I help people recognize and take responsibility for their role in creating trust. I also guide them to implement frictionless daily practices that make it happen.
