Culture Mapping: Leading in a time of change
S. David Ramirez, Manager of Learning, Scaleworks
"Hire great people and give them freedom to be awesome." -- Andrew Mason, Founder, Groupon
"Assume the best but hire paranoid people." -- Evan Williams, Co-Founder, Twitter
"Make sure everybody in the company has great opportunities, has a meaningful impact, and is contributing to the good of society." -- Larry Page, CEO, The Alphabet Company (Google)
Culture and leadership are intertwined. As organizations grow their culture is often the last thing to scale. Leading through change, growth, success and failure require an understanding of how your staff, stakeholders, and constituents view your culture. This session will introduce you to the Culture Map tool. We will discuss behaviors, enablers and blockers, and organizational outcomes. This is a hands-on session. Plan to participate. We will have Culture Maps and supplies to engage you as we examine your challenges.
Questions to ponder before you arrive:
1. What was the best day your organization ever had?
2. What was the worst day your organization ever had?
3. What is the greatest challenge in your future?
