Speaker Spotlight: Kelly Cardenas Builds Winning Cultures

Keynote speaker Kelly Cardenas knows that building iconic brands begins with the heartbeat of your organization: people. Your business empire can only go as far as your corporate culture allows. But that culture is made of individuals. While positive attitudes and strong ethics can build your brand, negative attitudes can spread. They can create weak links and infect your entire organization.

Renowned keynote speaker, bestselling author and podcaster Cardenas delivers more than a pep talk. He offers realistic, time-tested and goal-driven strategies to construct a thriving corporate culture that will lead your organization to success.

As we dive deeper into Cardenas’ philosophy and career as a business keynote speaker, keep this question he poses in mind:

“What would it mean to you to have a way to evaluate character, and integrity that would be directly linked to the bottom line performance and more importantly the sustainability of your organization or relationship?”

Learn to build people with Cardenas

Cardenas knows what it takes to build a multimillion-dollar brand from the ground up. In fact, he built his own as founder of Kelly Cardenas Salon. As with other leaders, one may wonder where he found the time to run the company, as well as contribute to Forbes magazine, develop a successful podcast, deliver keynote addresses and author a bestselling book. The answer is both simple and complex: You must create teams with the skills, motivation and empowerment to act. After all, not much gets done when employees need to wait for authorization to take action.

But building that cultural efficiency requires more than blind trust. For sustained success, you need to develop teams of people with the brilliance to lead, act and, when necessary, put questionable actions in check. To build your empire, you need to develop a team that can function perfectly beyond micromanagement and even in your absence. As Cardenas says, “First and foremost you build the people and then you allow the people to build the business!”
