I'm thinking about...
Everyone would agree that culture is the secret source, the competitive advantage, that connects, unites and makes communities happy – despite this importance we rarely bring an intentionality to culture…(Research Participant)
This is one of my favourite research participant quotes.
I am committed to bringing an intentionality to culture and in particular to help build "collaborative cultures", so this is a real focus in my collaboration & partnership joint venture workshops.
We look at developing:
When we are intentional about culture, we realise that it’s really not about big mega changes; it's about "shifting" cultures by “nudging” change.
Intentionality about culture is about changing the paradigm through the stories we tell, the symbols we use, the daily rituals, the degree of reliance on power structures and the control systems in place.
A move towards empowering leadership and decision-making across the organisation is a significant positive step forward.
Life after the pandemic, will be a call to more and more collaborative cultures and ventures!
Let's talk if I can help you with building capability, programme set up or help getting an existing programme off the bottom rung of the ladder!
