Pioneering Culture Transformation with Communication

An experiential program to expand personal, interpersonal and public leadership capabilities, to capture employees' hearts and minds in times of culture transformation.

Overview

Pioneering Culture Transformation with Communication will give participants the experience of leading a culture change initiative.

The program includes an immersive simulation where participants take on a senior leadership role in an organization in need of cultural transformation. Participants decide how best to respond to a range of issues raised by employees concerned with what the change will mean for them and their teams, as they strive to communicate change, create employee buy-in and a safe space for dialogue, and a renewed sense of belonging.

Participants will also receive an AIMS 180° Leading Cultural Transformation assessment report as part of their learning experience, providing rich insight into their own persona, interpersonal and public leadership skills in leading culture change.

The program is structured around the key lessons leaders should learn from those who have lived through a culture transformation. Some of these include:

  • Fostering dialogue
  • Dealing with a range of negative emotions
  • Making employees feel valued, heard and safe during change

Who is this for?

This program is for mid to senior-level managers responsible for either the planning and/or the implementation of major transformational change initiatives within their organization. For example: culture change, restructuring or merger integration initiatives.
