Presentation Details

Championing culture change is challenging in and of itself, but leading a cultural transformation of a well-established company can feel daunting, if not impossible. The implications for changing a company's mission and values are significant both for the employees and the business, and yet today's ever-changing business landscape requires an equally adaptive cultural response. Hear about how to identify when a larger cultural transformation is necessary; defining a process that centers the employees; and translating change into action.

In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Identify when a larger cultural transformation is necessary.

  • Define a culture transformation process that centers the employees.

  • Translate a mission and values into every day action.
