Welcome to PCC!
Have you ever had a bad job? “Bad” comes in many different colors – a boss who didn’t guide or develop you, you didn’t understand your organization’s work or purpose, coworkers who made your life miserable, and the list goes on. Hopefully, you’ve lived that magical career and have never suffered through a difficult or disappointing employment situation.
While I’ve come close to that magical career, I have unfortunately experienced a couple of tough job situations. Years ago during the dotcom bubble, my situation was so difficult, I found it hard to get out of bed and go to work. The culture, my teammates, company leadership, the pressure – UGH! I was miserable. The pay was good but that was it. Since personal satisfaction is more important than the money, I finally took my abilities elsewhere.
ProCulture Consulting exists to put an end to these types of work experiences. PCC is dedicated to employees at all levels and in all industries. We work with companies, helping them develop corporate cultures that allow their people to do great work. We also work directly with employees including those on the front lines or in the back office, challenging them to work hard and find satisfaction in their daily activities.
I hope this blog is more conversation than me simply throwing out thoughts. If the content is good (I’ll do my best!), it will hopefully stir comments and ideas that readers will share. I am not as smart as all of us put together!
What will we “talk” about and how often will we talk? We’ll hit key PCC topics including customer service, generations in the workplace with an emphasis on the Millennial generation, corporate culture and leadership. We will also explore general business topics such as ethics and how organizations can be a good community partner. If it helps you do good work and find career success, it’s fair game!
As for frequency, I’m thinking once a week? Twice a week? Those seem like pretty good numbers.
So welcome to PCC! Please check back regularly to review the latest posts and to join the conversation. If we work together, we can bring an end to “bad” jobs. It won’t be easy and it will most likely take a l-o-n-g time. I’m confident, though, that it can happen one organization, one boss, and one employee at a time.
Now, go take on the day!

I've enjoyed a great career. Worked in many different industries with great coworkers and customers. I talk to a lot of people while drinking a lot of coffee. I read constantly. From all of this, I have much to say.
