The impact of a company's culture on its success is not merely anecdotal; it's supported by concrete data. According to a Gallup poll, highly engaged teams are 21% more profitable due to a positive company culture. Moreover, such a culture results in employees becoming more committed, leading to 59% less turnover. Fostering positivity in the workplace has tangible advantages.

Despite its pivotal role, a positive workplace culture is frequently overlooked due to the relentless pursuit of profits. Seeking to address this oversight, David Baxter, the CEO and Founder of Motivational Dreamers and national speaker, shares valuable insights in his seminars.

Through these sessions, he sheds light on the fundamental role culture plays in influencing the thoughts, feelings, and actions of employees. David emphasizes a positive and inclusive work environment, which nurtures innovation, collaboration, and engagement. This is intricately linked to a well-crafted organizational culture. Corporate culture is a fluid entity. It doesn't develop spontaneously; rather, it is significantly influenced by the leadership style of those steering the organization.

"Leadership has always intrigued me. This led me to study other leaders of old and new, as I'm always interested in their style of leadership, what worked for them and what didn't, and what their philosophy was in life. I've been in rooms and spaces with all sorts of CEO's, executive directors, and founders of all kinds of organizations and companies, some are even close friends," says David.

One key element highlighted by David in fostering positive change within organizations is self-discipline. Drawing from his studies on successful leaders across diverse fields, he identifies this quality as a common trait among those who excel. His presentations delve into what this entails and how organizations can achieve it. He equips organizations with a valuable tool for creating a conducive and thriving work environment.

Self-discipline, according to David, is not just a personal trait; it's a driving force for organizational excellence. It involves staying focused, maintaining consistency, and adhering to a set of principles. In the workplace, cultivating self-discipline among employees contributes to heightened motivation, increased commitment, and, ultimately, improved business performance.

Beyond seminars, David is writing a book titled "10 Characteristics of Bad Leadership." This initiative reflects his dedication to shedding light on the darker aspects of leadership and inspiring positive change. He is offering actionable insights gained from his experiences and observations.

In essence, David Baxter's seminars serve as a platform for organizations to navigate the complexities of company culture and leadership. His emphasis on self-discipline and the profound influence of leadership on culture provides practical guidance for organizations striving to create a conducive and thriving work environment.

"I've spoken and worked with CEOs, employees ,teachers, students, at-risk youth, incarcerated kids and adults. Everyone needs to dream and deserves success. But at times life throws us some hardships that not everyone is equipped to overcome or see a pathway through, and that is where I come in," says David.
