a toolkit clinic for leaders serious about taking on culture change to improve organisation health, behaviour and performance


BRISBANE June 25-26  HERVEY BAY July 21-22

also in-house on request...


Why bother with work culture? The answer, in a nutshell, is because culture impacts strategy, performance and behaviour, all key factors for organisation survival, thrival and success.

Culture ultimately limits or enlarges what’s possible in any organisation – moving strategy forward or holding it back. It’s often the hidden factor in change success. Change strategies that work in one organisation can fall flat in another – and the variable is often culture.

Most leaders are acutely aware of how constructive cultures help people perform well. They’re  equally aware of how dislocated ones seem to breed bad behaviour, toxic work climates and chronic under-performance. 

Do you want to cope more confidently with contentious conversations?

Dealing with

Difficult Discussions

BRISBANE May 27-28


HERVEY BAY July 27-28

SUNSHINE CST Uni July 29-30

Getting the culture ‘right’ is the most critical facet to focus on for leaders who want great teams and sustainable results. We even define great leaders as those who turn around an impoverished culture and create a constructive one. 

Whether you helped create the culture you’re dealing with now, or you inherited it from past leaders and the aggregated actions, achievements or accidents of organisation history, leaders certainly have a job monitoring, managing and trying to re-shape or revitalise it from time to time.
