Additional Culture Details

Our agency’s culture informs how our employees act and how they treat each other and our clients, and we believe this begins with our leadership serving staff and others from a place of “Love Leadership” and agape, or treating others the way you would want to be treated. With an executive team that has been in seat for an average of more than 8 years each, CN Guidance implemented a culture of Love Leadership that reflects authentic caring and respect, transparency, supportive accountability, and empowerment that starts from the top and is infused in every aspect of an employee’s experience at the workplace.
Related initiatives have addressed areas of Talent Acquisition, Rewards & Recognition, Career Development, Cultural Diversity & Inclusion, and Total Wellness. Examples include a Day 1 Orientation that acclimates new staff to the agency and a mentoring program for accelerated professional development. Executive leadership visit each program at least quarterly to hear directly from staff, and we actively survey our staff and clients throughout the year to understand what’s working and what needs improvement. Furthermore, we actively invest in our managers’ training and growth, and we support the ongoing educational advancement of staff at all levels to maintain high levels of staff satisfaction and excellence.
