Managing Culture Intentionally
September 12, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Most businesses and their leaders are content to let culture happen. They focus intensely on the strategic direction, operational efficiencies and financial acumen they believe will win in the marketplace, and let the culture emerge organically. They’re missing a profound opportunity, James Heskett of Harvard Business School points out: “Culture can account for up to half of the difference in operating profit between two organizations in the same business.”
We’ve selected a handful of leaders who have helped foster dynamic, healthy, effective cultures in their organizations to share some of their practices with our community. We’ll hear how some leaders built their culture consciously from the very beginning and how others begin shaping theirs many years after initial incorporation through a discovery process.
Wondering how to integrate your values and culture into your business practices? Does your company aspire to be a “best place to work?” Come learn from our panel how they built cultural and management practices to decentralize decisions and empower employees, while fostering accountability and encouraging collaboration.
After our leaders share some insights from their experiences with shaping culture, we’ll shift into small groups in which the leaders will help apply their ideas and practices to the challenges of the attendees. Bring your questions and challenges around building culture and conscious management to share with the group.
