Culture – the What, the How, the Me

With Jane Sparrow

This event will show the link between the “right” culture, business performance and greater success. Jane will then explain what culture means, how the best leaders can become an effective culture champion, and provide your own toolkit for influencing and changing culture.

We are regularly told that culture is something that just is, that it’s something the workforce owns, and only really changes when a significant number of people move on, or are moved out. As Lou Gerstner, said "Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress, Working together is success." And when you hear what Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Sergei Brin and Larry Page all say, and even more importantly do, it's clear that no successful company in the 21st century operates without paying attention to corporate culture.

Having a winning culture will be vital for all companies as we enter a period of transformational business change and unpredictability. But culture isn’t a nebulous entity, it’s a firm concept that has tangible, changeable factors. Successfully building a strong culture that enables a high performing organisation, or team, is a science (not an art, or a prayer!). 

During this session, Jane will unpack the success of best practice organisations – exploring what we truly mean by ‘culture’, and how to create the right culture for the organisation and where it’s heading….the ‘right’ culture being one that creates sustained high performance and desired results.  Jane will run a stimulating session, blending knowledge sharing and facilitated exercises to ensure you leave a culture champion, armed with a plan for action.
