How To Change Your Organization’s Culture
If You’re Not the CEO (or Even if You Are)

What would your workplace look like if employees brought their discretionary enthusiasm to work every day?  What would it mean to your organization if you could improve engagement, increase retention, raise the level of trust and increase collaboration?  If you are trying to build a company where this type of culture drives organizational success, if you are trying to change a culture that is floundering, or if you are already on the journey to culture excellence but want some insights on how to take the next steps, this 2 1/2-day workshop is exactly what you need.

Your takeaways:

  • Deepen your understanding of the impact of organizational culture and its importance in our current organizational environment

  • Learn a framework for how to think about the architecture of organizational culture, and the key elements that enable organizational and individual “thriving”

  • Approach culture development and change, not as a “burning platform” that requires urgent action, but as a journey towards an organization that is “fit for the future and fit for human beings.”
