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.
None of us feel we have enough time. It’s a finite resource, and it forces us to make choices. Those choices send signals about what we really value. One of the strongest symbols of a culture is how time is spent. When people see this changing, they start to believe your communication about values.
On February 27th Walking the Talk in Brazil hosted a breakfast session with Walking the Talk co-founder and Executive Chair Carolyn Taylor, which triggered some great insights in the group.
Check out the ten topics that summed up the core of our conversation.
One of the most commonly asked questions in my work on culture is how long will the change take? When will we have the culture we need? There is no simple answer to this question because a multitude of factors can influence the speed of culture change across an organization. But there are things you can do to speed up the process.
