The Golden Hammer of Transformation: Culture!
Culture eats change for its breakfast! How many time have you discovered it? Have you noticed any indicators of it? How many times have you blamed the culture?
Isn't culture presented on what people do, say, and act? Studies tell us that people are of good nature. Most people (99% to be exact) do what they believe is right. They don't intend to resist change. They even are willing to help, and maybe they don't know how. They genuinely want to see the transformation becomes successful. They are resourceful as well. One might ask, how come there are many catastrophic stories when it comes to organizational transformation?
Have you heard the famous quote, "If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail"? Could it be that we are not looking at transformations with the right perspective? Could it be that we only have, and use a hammer? Maybe we have different types of it, and we don't even notice?
If the above interests you, please join us. Let us share our experiences, and how we moved away from using the "hammer" within organizations.
Outline/Structure of the Talk
Introduction - 5 minutes
A brief introduction of us, the complex environment we are talking about and what we see or define as the culture. Then, we are going to share different perspectives and different stories of culture and transformation in 3 iterations.
Presentation of Culture related stories and scenarios Our stories about culture: working with it or fixing it!?- 25 minutes
We are going to share our stories or working with culture, how we worked with it, how we carve opportunities to make a successful transformation rather than believing it can not be done or the culture needs to be changed. We are going to share different cultural hacks we used to overcome the hurdles.
Closing + Final Debrief - 10 minutes.
We are going to summarize the rules of thumbs, lessons learned for the audience to take with them.
Cultural Hacks - At least 7 of them
Learning outcome of this session is the education of Cultural Hacks we used in each scenario to work with the culture rather than working around it, ignoring it, or even blaming it!
