Today on the show we’re talking to Monty Moran, CEO of Chipotle. Monty talks about how he started as a lawyer, quickly moved up the ranks in his law firm and became the CEO of his law firm because the partners saw he was a leader. He then had Chipotle as a client, and the CEO of Chipotle saw how well his firm was doing and wondered how Monty had created such a great culture, and brought him on as co-CEO of Chipotle.

Monty talks about the 3 reasons why people aren’t happy in your company.There are low performers, which is rare, not knowing the standards of your workplace, and most importantly your employees are not feeling empowered. Empowerment can lead to some amazing results, if every one of your employees feels like they are furthering themselves as well as the company, you know you’ve built a successful culture.

People are much more in common than they are different, Monty went out to show that people are connected in a lot of ways. He shot a documentary series called, Connected: A Search for Unity airing on PBS.
