The Academy started two years ago when it was thought there was a need for an association styled organization that focused entirely on culture. That was two years ago. Today, nearly every association and conference related to business management has something about culture. But the Academy remains with a single focus on workplace culture.

The Academy pillars:

  1. Entrepreneurially styled city chapters that (1) arrange public meetings at host companies where the host company discusses their culture and (2) disseminate information about the Academy within their geographic community.
  2. The WISDOM for Modern Workplaces retreat in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Its reputation is as the nation’s group for “know how” about creating and maintaining great workplace cultures.
  3. Advisory services that leverage the vast and diverse expertise of Academy followers for consulting, training, and speaking.

The Academy founder and President is Gerald R. Wagner, PhD.
