Organizational Adulting



XPLANE believes in the power of individual change makers to be culture champions. Nobody should have to wait for permission or a formal culture initiative––by that point it’s a major undertaking. This workshop follows XPLANE’s Organizational Adulting webinar series exploring and solving for the most challenging and problematic workplace behaviors.

Together, we’ll identify and demonstrate simple tactics to create a more human and empowered workplace. We’ll focus on simple yet bold actions that cumulatively make a more innovative, agile, modern, and effective organization. This workshop is great for individuals seeking new methods to share with their teammates, or whole teams to come and work through new norms and practices.

In This Workshop, You Will Learn To:

  • Identify your three-to-five most challenging workplace behaviors
  • Learn strategies, tactics, and frameworks to address them head-on
  • Develop your personal plan to create a better workplace for you and your team
