CULTURE SHOCK

How to change the playing field by changing the culture

Organizations are now beginning to focus on 'change' but the singular lens perspective is creating short-term wins that are never lasting. Leadership teams are beginning to realize that to successfully change, the organization must be set-up for success. Organizations that focus on culture are those that are consistently rising to the top, succeeding at change, and winning in their respective categories. Recognizing that culture does indeed eat strategy for breakfast and that “corporate personality” is critical for success, you’re invited to learn how changing your organizational culture is the secret to achieving the results you desire.  This engaging and innovative session, packed with solid takeaways and multimedia will leave you enthused and ready to start a cultural revolution when you return to the office.
 

 

INFLUENCE 3.0

Organizations are spending millions to transition and transform. Service delivery models are changing, new frameworks are being adopted, and yet the results are consistently underwhelming. We are sending out more and more information for the brain to process often leaving the rest of the mind and body behind. The investment has focused on the organization as an entity but not on the relationships of its people. Yet knowing that individual reactions to change and communication is affected by how are brains are wired, why are we not capitalizing on powerful neuro-change experiences to successfully engage and empower our staff with the tools to succeed in their professional and personal relationships?

To successfully build winning teams and influence change with each other and our clients we must embrace the fact that communication is no longer about what we want people to know and do, but what rather what we want them to feel and experience. How can we take what the science tells us, to positively influence others and ignore their inner ‘change-maker’ to provide impactful and lasting peer relationships where both the individual, the groups, and the organization succeeds? This engaging session guaranteed to provide insight and 'aha' moments will leave individuals with innovative practical techniques and tools that can immediately be applied in dealings with colleagues and with clients.
