Though sometimes hard to define, culture has been consistently cited as the most powerful influence in determining an organization's long-term economic results.

Positive culture is much more than 'Kumbaya' around the campfire, wearing the same t-shirt, and passionately chanting company slogans! It's the glue that holds an organization together, it breeds grit and resilience, and it keeps people pulling in a common direction. Whether paid attention to or not, culture develops. As it can be extremely challenging to transform, it is infinitely preferable to be intentional about creating, developing and nurturing a positive, strategically relevant culture.

Culture is determined by the behaviour of those inside the organization: What is tolerated becomes normal, and what is normal is copied. Therefore, it stands to reason that an intentional focus on developing culturally appropriate behaviours is the key to creating cohesive, high-performing cultures.

This workshop highlights the importance and value of intentional culture development as a means to creating consistently high-performing organizations. We dive into the three pillars that form the framework for culture development, and clearly and concisely explore the principles and practices of positive leadership as a means to creating and sustaining culturally appropriate behaviour throughout an organization.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand and be able to articulate clearly and concisely the value and importance of culture on long-term organizational results.
2. Understand and be able to put into practice the framework for creating positive culture through behaviour.
3. Understand the principles of positive leadership, and be able to employ them immediately.

Speaker bio(s)
Tina Cantrill

A former Fortune 500 VP and General Manager turned executive coach and organizational culture consultant, Tina brings over two decades of leadership and international experience to her clients. When she secured her first VP role without a business degree, Tina realized that something more significant than academic credentials was driving her success. When she observed other successful executive leaders, she noticed consistently similar traits in all of them. This became the trigger for deep and broad study and practice in emotional intelligence, influence and persuasion, and positive leadership and culture: The cornerstones of her coaching and consulting practice today. Tina has clients across the globe, and has the privilege to work with Canadian organizations such as Health Canada, Measurement Canada, Bausch Health, Bausch & Lomb, the Montreal Heart Institute, and Telus Health. Tina holds an MBA from the University of Leicester (yes, she got that business degree!), and is certified in NLP, CBT, EQi, EQ360, organizational culture consulting, executive presence and influence, and executive and management coaching. She is also an ICF-credentialed coach having logged over 500 coaching hours. When she's not working, Tina spends hours in her kitchen cooking whilst listening to a fairly eclectic mix of music. She is a passionate martial artist and holds a second dan black belt in Shito Ryu Karate. She also loves 'off the beaten track' travel with her husband and son, and delights in visiting vineyards in all corners of the globe.
