About The Center for Corporate Culture

The Center for Corporate Culture became reality in 2007. It represented a new business standard while advocating an ongoing conversation about the importance of building a workplace culture that is engineered for maximum performance.

The planting of the seeds for The Center’s evolution occurred in 2003, when The Dollins Group produced the first in a series of Ehical Leadership Conferences. These successful conferences have featured worldrenowned speakers: Dr. Stephen R. Covey, Ken Blanchard, President George H. W. Bush, and General Norman Schwarzkopf. These brilliant thinkers engaged audiences and helped lay the foundation for The Center, which will continue this tradition of excellence by focusing on leadership, ethics, wellness, and execution.

The Center’s mission is to advocate an emerging twenty-first-century business model at a time when business leaders face a bold new marketplace in which competition is fierce, consumers are educated, and innovation is the chief currency. The Center is dedicated to helping CEOs and their teams focus on building a sustainable culture while enhancing their bottom line.


About Go Think!

Nobody has time to think anymore—truly think. Or to analyze, brainstorm, build relationships, discover new things, or turn dreams into realities. Go Think! does only that. We facilitate effective thinking that makes effective action possible. We believe in the value of intellect, curiosity, experience, enthusiasm, and instincts. We thrive on working with brands that evoke passion. Also, we are interested only in the long haul—taking brands from one place to the next, to the next, to the next. You get the idea. We aim for a continuous cycle of imagination, sound thinking,
research, big ideas, and loud conversations that drive results.

Our approach is simple. We like to dig into your business situation through interviews, site visits, research, and competitive assessments—whatever it takes for us to understand your brand and your challenges. We call it brand interrogation: we interrogate
until the brand confesses its strengths and reveals opportunities. Next, we help you go away and think—literally and figuratively. We have a unique first-class conference facility in a barn on a remote 86-acre farm off the beaten path in central Texas. It is an exclusive, private environment where reflecting and thinking are
easy. From this solitude and quiet comes incredible thinking, and ideas flow. You are able to concentrate, regroup, reassess your priorities, and reengage in your life’s purpose.
