Event Sponsor

Using the backdrop of stories gained through successful and unsuccessful culture change, this session will explore 3 drivers of culture. Acting like a powerful magnet, "the way it has always been done around here" often wins out over innovation and change.

We will explore the powerful impact that

  1. leadership behaviours,
  2. systems, structures, and processes, and
  3. employee beliefs, have on organizational culture.

Put all together, we present a model for culture change, and a recommended first step towards redefining your culture.
