Changing the Workplace Culture
Interested in changing the culture of your organisation? Discover how our culture change training can help ignite and sustain such a change.
Do you recognise that the culture of your organisation needs to change, but aren't sure where to start? How can you get buy in for the change, and will any attempts to change the culture truly last?

These training courses can help...

Changing the Workplace Culture Workshop Activities
We are always happy to adapt both learning content and delivery style to match your specific needs, so treat this page as a starting point, and we'll adapt it to be just right.
Never 'death by powerpoint'
We always provide a variety of learning approaches in each of our workshops.
Each workshop typically includes learning input from the trainer, supported by a range of mixed media, interactive elements, discussion and group work. Most workshops also include case work and practical skill-development activities to apply the learning, with more time dedicated to this in the longer courses.
'Want more?' resource pack
In addition to providing a copy of any slide deck, we always provide a ‘want more’ section, of curated resources including book summaries, podcasts, downloads and articles.
My attention can easily wander, but this was never the case here, largely due to the variety of learning approaches used. Never a dull moment!
What are the benefits of culture change training?
Culture Change Training Frequently Asked Quesitons
Do most organisations have more than one culture?
The larger the organisation, the more likely it is to have separate and different cultures; what matters most in these situations is to identify each separate culture, and work out whether such a culture is a help or hindrance to overall company performance and effectiveness.
Aren't cultures grown, rather than imposed?
It's true that unregulated cultures tend to grow organically, which is fine, so long as they support the organisation's aims and performance. If they don't then changes have to be made, and given their own time to grow and embed.
Are most cultures value-based?
Many are, and of course the key issue then is whether those dominant values are legitimate and helpful or not. And some cultures are driven by custom and practice, by routine, rather than any dominant value set.
Which workshop should I attend?
The shortest course offers a good definition of culture, how it forms, and its impact; the half day session identifies a strategy to address changing the culture; and the full day session provides opportunity to put culture change ideas into practice through an extended real-world case study.
