Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast - What's Your Culture

Date: Friday, August 24th from 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Session Code: BMG16
Location: B308

Presented by: The Metiss Group

Speaker: Cyndi Gave, President: The Metiss Group

In this fast paced, interactive session you’ll learn culture defining approaches and how demonstrating core values can create a culture that’s more powerful than any strategy.

Do your core values reflect the culture you want? Most organizations don’t have core values and those that do often fail to describe their intended culture. This program helps leaders understand the difference between core values and culture by analyzing how organizations known for their unique culture develop and apply their core values. Learn how successful organizations develop core values and measure their leadership culture to create the intended culture.

Value to Members:
• Actionable cultural approaches that can be applied following the session
• Evaluate the strength of existing core values
• Understand the purpose of different types of core values (permission to play, real, aspirational)
• Appreciation for the power of leading by core values rather than policies
• How to use culture for talent acquisition fit
