Description

In this one-day executive course from Kelley, you’ll learn concepts and analytical frameworks to help you build and lead a high-performance culture in your organization or organizational unit.

The late Peter Drucker, a widely respected scholar and consultant for many Fortune 500 CEOs, once quipped: “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.”

With this insight, he reminded us that an organization’s culture is the single most powerful influence on an organization’s survival and performance.

And yet, “company culture” remains a vague concept in the minds of many organizational leaders. Under these circumstances, executing a plan for cultural transformation can be difficult. First, what do the characteristics of a high-performance culture actually look like? Second, if a healthy company culture requires company-wide buy-in, how do you go about getting it?

Build a culture that your competitors will envy and your employees will love. During this hands-on, one-day course, you’ll learn concepts and analytical frameworks to help you build and lead a high-performance culture in your organization or organizational unit.

You’ll find clear answers to tough questions like:

  • What is culture?
  • How can we learn to see what is essentially invisible?
  • How can we compare cultures?
  • How does a culture develop?
  • What factors stabilize and sustain a culture?
  • What is the “tipping point” indicating the need for cultural transformation?
  • What are the characteristics of a high-performance culture?
  • What can a leader do to transform a culture from low- to high-performance?

Learning outcomes: what you'll take back to the office

In this one-day course, you will:

  • Become acquainted with the characteristics of a high-performance culture
  • Learn how to transform a culture from low to high performance
  • Develop the capacity to “see” the three levels of organizational culture
