  • Values vs bias - who wins in the culture game?

    29/08/2019 Duração: 06min

    This week we explore how some values are more valuable than others and importantly, if we don't get serious about establishing purposeful values based cultures, we could be opening up our organisations to the irrational behaviour that comes with the negative elements of bias.

  • Office Politics Can Kill Your Culture

    18/07/2019 Duração: 10min

    We explore the danger of office politics and why we shouldn't be trying to manage it, but rather rid ourselves of this 'dirty game.'

  • Culture is a Contact Sport!

    29/06/2019 Duração: 07min

    In this episode we explore the importance of making culture a "contact" activity. Too much analysis and theory can come across as expert and aloof. Culture happens at team level, amongst people who interact with each other. If you want to shift culture (and behaviour), you have to get involved and in amongst the people. Be leader led and people driven. Be in contact. Talk to eachother and build a culture everyone feels part of.

  • Are your core values killing your culture?

    10/06/2019 Duração: 08min

    Too many organisations pay lip service to a set of core values and expect that their workplace cultures will automatically align. It takes effort to build a culture of authentic experiences. In this episode we explore the example of how Uber was undone with a toxic culture crafted from the very top. We also explore the notion of culture fit and this could be part of the problem. Finally, we hear some wisdom from Celynn Morin on how stressful workplaces impact on employee well-being and how we can change small habits to be more resilient.

  • Don't Fake Your Culture!

    25/05/2019 Duração: 07min

    In this episode we look at the example of Netflix and their famous culture deck. Specifically, we question how they grow and update their culture and the deck to make sure it's a true reflection of their culture. It's the only way to remain authentic and to be sure that people understand what's expected of them. Don't fall into the trap of trying to sell a fake knock off culture. Stay true, be transparent and build a culture you can easily live up to.  

  • Your People Are Your Culture

    14/05/2019 Duração: 13min

    In this episode we explore some fundamental questions about culture. Business leaders understand the importance of culture, and that for some it's the number one priority. For others, people are the most important part of culture. We unpack 3 key areas of culture. Culture is about people in action. Aligning people with culture means involving them in the design. Culture is best managed at 3 levels, personal, social and environmental.
