Good Comes First: How Today's Leaders Create an Uncompromising Company Culture That Doesn't Suck

For decades, businesses worldwide have exhausted billions of dollars attempting to improve company culture. They spend countless hours developing strategies to increase employee engagement, decrease burnout, increase retention, and improve productivity. Yet most workplaces still suck: employees don't feel valued, organizations aren't fun or compassionate places to work, and performance is often lagging.

In Good Comes First, S. Chris Edmonds and Mark S. Babbitt go beyond theoretical advice, offering their hard-won tools and actionable insights for building and sustaining a work culture that delivers respect and results in equal measure.

"As a business leader, I encourage you to take in every word Chris and Mark have written here in Good Comes First. More importantly, I challenge you to take on the role of change champion as you begin redefining your company culture and make the demonstration of respect as important as achieving results."
