As Culture Amp co-founder, not only is Didier Elzinga one of the most forward-thinking CEOs I know, he’s got a really cool name. He’s the kind of CEO that does what it takes for his people to feel valued. He’s also unafraid to answer questions about the relationship of power and authority to leadership. We talk about the role of culture analytics, why engagement hasn’t really improved and the future of work. He’s gone from what he describes as ‘the most naive business plan’ to a third round of venture capital funding. Culture Amp is a Melbourne startup that’s done remarkably well here and abroad. The company is doubling every year and with leadership like Didier’s they’re bound to surpass expectations.
