Regan Howell, the Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Monroe Energy, LLC, a refining, pipeline and terminal company headquartered near Philadelphia Pennsylvania, is the guest on this episode. Regan explains how every encounter we face each day is an chance to reinforce our organizational culture or to allow it to continue to deteriorate. Regan uses The Law of Entropy to illustrate that we must continually put energy into our organizations and our culture or they will naturally move from an organized to a disorganized state.
