2| From Cult Escapee to Culture Consultant, Daniella Young
Daniella Young has been studying intense, interesting, and sometimes horrifying cultures her entire life. She was actually third-generation raised in one of the worst modern-day religious cults, known as the Children of God.
At the age of 15, she escaped this cult, got educated, moved her way into the army, where she became a captain in military intelligence. During her service, she deployed twice to Afghanistan, becoming one of the first women to conduct deliberate ground combat operations at a time when it was illegal for women to do this.
These days, she does organizational behavior, cultural strategy consulting and she’s a renowned international speaker including TED Talks, helping CEOs and business leaders develop and employee an intentional growth culture in their organizations.
