Workplace Learning Professional's Role in Shifting Culture, 3-Part Series, Management Concepts Community of Change: Shaping and Shifting Culture, April 2019 (Part 1), May 2019 (Part 2), and June 2019 (Part 3)
I co-facilitated this three-part series with Lahaja Furaha and Cammi Markham. This community was a space for leaders to share knowledge, and network with other professionals who care about shaping culture to enhance performance. Members of the Community of Change, were able to:
Gain tips, techniques, and tools from Management Concepts on how to effectively integrate culture change into the work that you do
Learn how other organizations are effectively shaping culture
Discuss “hot topics” that are impacting the public sector and its relevancy to culture
Develop a sense of community with leaders who are advocates of building a constructive culture
We created an invaluable learning network where people from across the public sector were able to collaborate and build more constructive cultures in their organizations.
