Culture and People Development

The old ways of understanding human systems aren’t working anymore – the ways of superior versus inferior or management versus employees. Today people challenge command and control fallbacks, insisting that leaders treat values, shared power, progressive methods, and cross-functional teamwork as non-negotiable.

Your evolving workforce is a barometer for the health of your culture. They need leaders who develop social interest and strong relationships in them because technology combined with globalization often leaves them feeling less effective and supported in contributing solutions. This topic answers:

1. How to assess the condition of an existing workplace culture and determine what would be most valuable next

2. Why to transform our culture and if we do, what we should transform from, into

3. Developing people protect our reputation, grow our business and keep our customers coming back

4. Components to include in a culture transformation framework and implementation

5. Workplace culture models that net incredible results, provide consistency, sustainability, and are scalable and show measurable success
