The Heart of an Award-Winning Business.. (and It’s Not About the Pizza!)


Jeanne will share 3 secret ingredients that will help you to transform your workplace environment into a place where you love arriving and performing everyday.  It all begins with heart.  You will learn how and why healthy interpersonal relationships need to be the goal and honest face-to-face conversations are the solution to create an award-winning business culture. As women these traits/soft skills are inherent in us – yet we often do not have the courage or skills to lead in this manner.  Learn simple yet powerful tools that can help you to shift your organization, your team and your relationships- immediately.

Jeanne Malnati is the founder and CEO thethe Culture Group.  She is 
a Culture Transformation Expert. A licensed psychotherapist with a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Loyola University in Chicago, she has a rich expertise in the areas of interpersonal communication and group dynamics working with individuals, families, groups, and corporate teams. Throughout the last 25 years, she has:

  • Dealt effectively and compassionately with corporate meltdowns, women in life transitions, and non-profit organizations needing assistance breaking through communication barriers.
  • Performed groundbreaking work with adolescent girls and their moms, resulting in life-changing family dynamics.
  • Helped to develop strong teams and reunite partnerships where “stuffed” emotions, unfinished business, and unhealthy competition are addressed head on.
  • Facilitated team and group dynamics and implemented The Malnati Effect, where healing takes place, truth is spoken, fun returns, unique strengths are identified and celebrated, and goodwill permeates.
  • Spoken to thousands of individuals, touching hearts and challenging minds in profound ways, causing great ripple effects through relationships.

When Jeanne knew the time was right to retire her psychotherapist’s hat and move “into the boardroom,” she founded The Culture Group to provide unique programs encompassing her wide array of professional experience, extensive education, and intuitive insight. She’s known and respected for being beautifully and brutally honest, sharing her straight, yet sensitive, delivery of principles and feedback for individuals and corporate team members. She is gifted at creating a safe place, where there is laughter and where powerful breakthroughs are nurtured and encouraged through having the difficult conversations.

As a key facilitator both upfront and behind-the-scenes for Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, Jeanne has helped to create a healthy workplace for 1,800+ employees who love coming to work each day. Her program earned the company “The Top Workplace Award” from the Chicago Tribune for three consecutive years, as determined by the employees.

Jeanne is the author of the upcoming book: “The Little Book of Clean and Clear Communication: Fresh and Simple Tools to Transform You and Your Team.

Married 33 years, Jeanne lives in Chicago with her husband, Marc. They have three children and two grandchildren. She’s the founder of, a non-profit organization that she started with her two daughters. Spreading Hearts is dedicated to spreading love and goodwill to unsuspecting individuals helping to change the world, one heart at a time.
