S1E3: Creating a Culture that Scales

April 11, 2019


Building a strong, diverse corporate culture is not easy, but if anyone has the framework down, it’s Christina Luconi. As the Chief People Officer at Rapid7, Christina has honed her ability to focus on authentic growth and operations instead of best practices. Whether she’s preserving the company’s unique culture or making senior hires, Christina works hard to make the people the center of the company.

In this episode of The Agile Operations Podcast, Christina joins CEO Mike Volpe to talk about the counterintuitive and constantly evolving keys to scaling culture, including:

  • Axing annual performance reviews
  • Why best practices are bullshit
  • How to preserve culture as your company becomes political
  • The connection between Italian cooking and people operations (seriously)
  • And more!
