Culture is the life force of any organisation, intricately woven into its very fabric, yet often underestimated or overlooked. Neglecting your organisation culture can lead to detrimental ‘culture drift’.
The direction and impact of culture on an organsiation is the collective responsibility of not only People and Culture, but also for the wider leadership team. Dr John O. Burdett, a renowned global thought leader on culture, emphasises the significance of navigating change, fostering culture conversations, and harnessing the power of storytelling to crystalise your company’s essence. This clarity sets the tone for behaviour, innovation and drives success. High-performing companies thrive by defining their culture vividly, creating a magnetic pull that attracts and retains top talent while propelling them toward excellence.
Many organisations find it challenging to quantify culture, often due to its complex and multifaceted nature or the absence of suitable measurement methodologies. With sixteen distinct dimensions, John will demonstrate how the Culture WorkUp process can effectively deconstruct, comprehend, and assess your present organisational culture, as well as the cultural framework requirement for future achievements.
