I have been on a pilgrimage of sorts over the past few weeks, retracing the events of the Hungarian revolution in 1956. My father was a revolutionary and we had a very emotional time reliving the rise of communism. One of the things that struck me is how quickly communism took hold in the late 1940s and how deeply it became entrenched. It made me ponder on a question that I am asked regularly… ‘how long will it take for us to change our culture?’
At Walking the Talk, we are passionate about continuing to evolve our thinking on culture. We are always scanning the latest research and thinking and we are delighted to say that there is some new insight around what it takes to create a tipping point. The tipping point is a critical concept in culture transformation. It is about how you build sufficient momentum in the organisation to create change with enough pace and energy that it shifts the status quo at all levels.
Walking the Talk recently attended the HRD Summit in Amsterdam, where Executive Directors Jerome Parisse-Brassens and Amanda Fajak delivered a presentation on how to use culture measurement to drive sustainable change, to a room of Europe's leading HR Directors.
Walking the Talk will be presenting and exhibiting at the forthcoming HRD Summit on 22nd - 23rd May at the RAI in Amsterdam.
