Caneel Joyce (Executive Coach) on Creating an Exceptional Culture (Part 2)
Caneel Joyce is an executive coach to founders and CEOs of high growth companies and startups. She is also a partner at Evolution, a collective of coaches, trainers, and culture builders who helps companies like Slack, Radiology Partners, and Snap scale without losing their souls.
Caneel is focused on creating better leaders and company cultures. As an executive coach, she has personally worked with individuals and teams from Slack, Snap, Amazon, Disney, and even a past guest of this podcast.
Caneel received her PhD in Organizational Behavior from UC Berkeley, and was a tenure-track professor at the London School of Economics, before shifting her focus back to where her career started, which was on high-growth, technology startups.
In this second part of the conversation, Caneel and I talk about one of the most transformational moments in her life and what she learned from it. We also talk about a woman’s perspective and some of the challenges unique to women executives.
Then we really dig into company culture: how to know when a culture is working, when it’s not, and when yours needs a tune up. Plus, we talk about how to drive cultural change - even if you’re not the founder or CEO.
