This week on Ep. 55 of Openly Outspoken I sit with USA Today best-selling author, speaker, facilitator, executive coach and the founder and CEO of Gallaher Edge, Dr. Laura Gallaher. We discuss the importance of a high performing culture and how impactful it is within a company. Lauren talks about her first book she wrote with Dr. Phillip Meade, “The Missing Links” that is an overview of organizational culture insight. We then chat about the NASA project that Dr. Gallaher was assigned to after the Columbia Space Shuttle crash that killed several astronauts and how company culture had a major role in the crash. We then talk about each of our political views/opinions on certain topics.

In 2003, after the Space Shuttle Columbia tragedy, NASA hired Laura and a team of organizational psychologists to change the cultural influences that were deemed to play a role in the accident.
