Why is Culture important?

Helping and supporting people (staff) to grow is what catapulted Ontraport. The culture is truly about leaders building up other leaders. Staff at Ontraport think of it as their own business and are trained to solve their own problems rather than merely just “handling tasks.” According to Landon, investing energy into growing people, what you find is that people are more inspired about their roles. And by giving them responsibility, you are giving them an opportunity for people to take ownership. What you end up having is a staff full of dedicated advocates.

Leadership Structure at Ontraport

Are leaders born or made? Lena (see episode 192) felt it could be both. Out of this notion, “Driver’s Ed was created – a 6 week program that teaches: time effectiveness (foundation). When one graduates they have permission to pitch projects. They also know the ins and outs of organization and disciplined time management!
