You know the advantages that passionate employees can bring to your company. They contribute fresh, innovative ideas to your business. They are dedicated to both learning and teaching. They pour all their energy and focus into a cause bigger than themselves. They take better care of themselves physically and emotionally. And they go home to their families happy at night.
As CEO of WD-40 Company, I am more than just proud of our culture of 93% employee engagement. My tribe members bring brilliance, joy, dedication, and fun to work every day. All around the world.
I believe that this success is completely duplicable by any CEO who is committed to making the change. It may not be easy, but it is simple.
I can teach you how to have this too. Let’s get started.
It’s often said that the best place to make powerful contacts and to learn valuable things is in the first class cabin of a long-haul flight – ideally across at least one or two oceans.

For years, leadership has complained about performance reviews; how torturous they are for all concerned. You already know the complaints – you’ve probably made them yourself: Everyone dreads them – they’re horribly stressful for leaders and their direct reports alike.
Having served as the CEO and president of WD-40 Company for over 20 years, Garry Ridge has invaluable experience incorporating company culture and values into day-to-day operations and collaborating with tribe members and business partners throughout the world.
