C-Suite Roundtables

The Waterstone Culture Institute’s C-Suite Roundtable series is a peer-to-peer forum designed to help today’s leaders tackle some of the unique business challenges (and leverage new opportunities) presented by the changing world of work.

Your culture is changing. Organizations have an incredible opportunity to take a deliberate approach to culture – one that leverages culture as competitive advantage and that allows culture to help drive business performance. We’re here to help.

Our team has been working with CEOs and leaders from North America’s top organizations since 2003 to recruit, align, and develop high performance teams, and to transition corporate culture to maximize performance and help make culture a true competitive advantage.

The results speak for themselves. We’ve worked with clients who, after transforming to a high performance culture, have:

  • more than doubled their revenue,
  • quadrupled their EBITA CAGR,
  • significantly increased their revenue CAGR
  • improved their employee net promoter score year over year.

Register today to help take your culture and your performance to the next level!
