7 Reasons why Culture counts…

ü  It’s crucial for your team’s Performance

ü  It influences how people Behave & Think

ü  It paves the way to Successful Change

ü  It’s make-or-break to Strategy & Survival

ü  It’s core to Commitment & Engagement

ü  It’s key to Neutralising Team Toxicity

ü  It’s a powerful tool for Leadership Success

The bottom-line for leaders is that if they do not become conscious of the cultures in which they are embedded, those cultures will manage them.”  

Ed Schein Organisational Culture & Leadership


Leaders are often so busily focused on the mechanics of change that the underlying work culture gets overlooked. Culture is notoriously elusive to find and difficult to change. There are no quick-fixes, but if you understand culture and learn some lessons about what seems to work and what doesn’t, then you have a chance of changing it for the better.


But where and how do you start?

Two of the biggest obstacles leaders face is coming to grips with what culture really is, then working out what are the best ways to do something to revitalise, renovate or restore it.

And that’s where our Leading Culture Change clinic comes in… Whether it’s doing a cultural assessment, developing a vision of the culture you want, coming up with cultural renovation strategies or making moves to implement, this clinic and Toolkit can help you achieve more constructive outcomes...

Leading Culture Change 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 a substantial Toolkit to help you get started with culture change, 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

Plus we offer you an optional one-hour phone coaching conversation post-workshop for some one-on-one help with your personal Culture Change project, particular tools, processes or other culture change issues ­– at no extra cost to you.
