Developing a company culture that works is complicated and depends on many factors. But to jumpstart the process, start by changing the cadence, or the pace of everyday operations, says Jeffrey Hayzlett, CEO of business consultancy The Hayzlett Group.

In his latest book, Think Big Act Bigger Hayzlett recounts how a visit to CrossFit’s headquarters in Santa Cruz, California highlighted how this fast growing company conducts business and gets work done. What it chooses to prioritize resonates throughout its 11,000 affiliates across the country.

Watch this quick video to hear Hayzlett’s discussion on what CrossFit has taught him and what cadence can reveal about any company culture.
