Culture and Transformation: the Chicken and the Egg
Culture eats change for its breakfast! How many time have you heard this? Or thought about it? How many times have you seen indicators for it? How many time have you blamed culture for change not happening?
Isn't culture (roughly) what people do, say or think of in an organization. Studies tell us that people are good. 99% of people do what they believe is right. They are willing to help. They don't mean to resist changes coming their way. They want to see the transformation becomes successful, even more than what you think. They are very resourceful as well.
So then how come there are many catastrophic stories when it comes to changing culture of an organization? How come even knowing the effect of culture on transformation, we tend to not pay attention to it as needed?
Culture as an outcome, Culture as an objective and Culture as a goal can take us to completely different end states.
If the above interests you, please join us. We are going to share with you what we learned from our experience in transforming one of the biggest departments of TD.
