Why bother with culture? 5 reasons why it matters...
ü Culture is a crucial key to outstanding performance...
ü Culture informs thinking and behaviour... and all leaders are concerned with that!
ü Paying attention to culture paves the way for more successful change…
ü Culture is a sink-or-swim factor when the time comes to launch strategy...
ü Culture can make-or-break leaders and team morale...
What’s Revitalising Your Culture about? Getting the culture ‘right’ is the most critical facet to focus on for leaders who want great teams and sustainable results. It impacts strategy, performance and behaviour – all key factors in organisation change success.
Some dismiss culture as too fluffy and ephemeral to manage. Or it gets discounted as a distraction not deserving of serious attention. Both these views are just plain wrong. It’s been shown time and again: constructive cultures encourage healthy high-performance; dislocated ones breed bad behaviour, toxic climates and under-performance.
The ability to effect cultural change, Harvard research says, is the real sink-or-swim factor for many leaders. We even define great leaders as someone who turns around a poor culture. But how and where do you start? That’s where our clinic on Revitalising your Culture comes in...
Revitalising your Culture unpacks the components that make up culture and equips you with an 8-phase model and practical tools to handle culture change better. Attend this unique clinic and take-away practical tools to handle culture change effort better, whether you lead a team, division or a whole organisation. You’ll learn how to:
· Identify what patterns make up culture and what to change
· Scan for signs of constructive or dislocated cultures
· Diagnose your current culture and ways to revitalise it
· Apply an 8-phase model to plan positive culture change steps
· Drill down on culture by unearthing its tacit assumptions
· Scope the challenges of leading culture change efforts
· Explore tools and plan approaches to lead cultural revitalisation
· Learn about traps and tips to counter cultural resistance
· Work out where to start with culture change
