bio brief: Nat Measley
A Calculated Career in Culture | A World Authority on Applied Workplace Culture Programs
Nat continues to forge ahead with a truly unique professional career. Nat was born and raised in the shadows of a legendary entrepreneur who focused on business growth, community, and culture: Milton S. Hershey, in Hershey, PA. Nat left Chocolate town to pursue studies at the University of Delaware where he received his degree in business, sport, and philosophy, and a master's in Organizational Leadership.
Upon graduation in 2008, Nat took a risk. He chose to join a small group of partners to help to start a consulting company, instead of continuing his work in academia. The chance to build something from the ground-up mixed with the designed autonomy of the opportunity fueled the decision.
In 2012, at the age of 28, Nat was hand-selected to be the CEO for the company for a five-year term. By the end of 2016, under Nat’s direction, the company had cut monthly costs by over 60%. At the same time, the company expanded from a handful of offerings to 21-products, including licensing of a few of those products domestically and internationally in Australia. In those four-plus years, the company also saw its annual gross revenues increase by 100% from 2012 to the end of 2016 and expanded their work with many name-brand companies and organizations.
Over the nearly 15-years total of work with companies, organizations, non-profits, and other community groups and classrooms, both big and small, Nat is consistently leading the conversation, focused on leveraging culture for the betterment of businesses, like Capital One, The US Air Force, PwC, and many other regional and national brands.
In 2018, Nat founded the Organizational Culture & Design Institute to further study the effects that a great working environment can have on those people who love their jobs, those who don't, and the CPI's (Culture Performance Indicators) that come with both. Nat now focuses his research, work, and speaking on leveraging design thinking principles for positive, measured outcomes. He believes in redesigning the "meaning of work" for people-powered human capital initiatives. He also now teaches back at his alma mater - the University of Delaware.
Outside of speaking and building a wonderful team at YourCultureDesign.com, Nat volunteers for various local organizations including the GoBabyGo! Program, Special Olympics, Down Syndrome Association, The Ronald McDonald House, multiple start-up mentor programs, and many others because he believes every single person should have a chance to love their work, make an impact, and seek responsibility for the job(s) they do.
