Primary event description:
Shortcomings in organizational culture are one of the main barriers to organizational success in the digital age. McKinsey’s recent survey of global executives (2016) highlighted 3 digital culture deficiencies: functional and departmental silos; a fear of taking risks and difficulty forming and acting on the single view of the client. These can no longer be ignored! Leaders must be proactive in shaping and measuring culture, approaching it with the same rigor and discipline in which they tackle operational transformations. Learn how to use these critical cultural intervention points as a valuable road map to reshape their organization’s culture. Explore areas such as “purpose led leadership”; “networks of teams” and “collective intelligence”. Michelle will also share a current client scenario and invite you to put on your consulting and coaching hats to collaborate together - action learning in progress. Leave the session with a set of reinforcing practices to jump start change and ensure organizational culture supports transformation in the digital age!
