Abstract

Awareness of the importance of culture is growing at a fast rate but there is no consistent understanding about how to effectively evolve culture with a direct and sustainable impact on performance. This awareness-understanding gap helps to explain why most organizations report they don’t understand their culture and believe change is needed. Culture crises (Uber, etc.) gain widespread exposure and superficial tips and keys dominate the popular press. Leaders and change agents often feel lost in the wilderness as they try to piece together improvements that will impact culture. This will likely be the most performance-focused culture educational session you have experienced. The foundation is a series of insights about culture, climate and culture change from some of the top workplace culture pioneers in history. These insights are not widely understood and they are integrated in visual tools, flow charts, timelines and examples to accelerate learning regarding this important topic. You will learn a general framework for • Combining qualitative and quantitative methods to understand the current culture, climate and impact on outcomes • Engaging leadership and team members in improvement efforts • Techniques to sequence, prioritize, and phase improvement efforts to build momentum, deliver initial results, and sustain change efforts The session will also include a discussion about common obstacles and how to overcome them with a focus on shared learning as part of a phased improvement approach.
