Using Culture to Unlock Your People’s Potential



Culture is a major force that influences anyone’s life who is in it – for better or worse. It shapes how we think, act, and behave. It determines the quality of relationships and the level of meaning we derive from our work.

In this workshop, we’ll go over cutting-edge research and frameworks to gain inspiration and practical next steps you can use to elevate our culture to help grow and develop every person in your organization.

In This Workshop, You Will:

  • Define your culture – what makes it unique and where it is weak
  • Design practices and rituals that reinforce the culture you want
  • Help your team find their growth edges and lean into them
