The pandemic has stripped us of so many things we hold sacred, not the least of which is the magic of experiencing live sports. We’ve all felt it: that sense of anticipation and rush of excitement when you cross the threshold and step into an arena of competition, when you hear and feel the crowd rise to their feet and cheer — that moment when a packed stadium holds their collective breath in unison. We’ve seen the lights and displays and witnessed the raw power of the world-class athletes. Live sports are more than just athletic competition — they are pure entertainment.

I have been thinking a lot lately about what makes a company’s culture tick. Having spent the past year working remotely, leaders have a fresh perspective on the type of environment they want their employees to work in. We all want an inclusive, accepting company culture, but sometimes, we might be hired into an existing culture or merged with/acquired by another company with an established culture. What happens when we walk into a toxic situation? How do we correct the situation and create a safe environment for the staff?
