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.
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.
Do you know how to change the minds and influence behaviour of those around you? Or why your culture efforts might be failing? Read our Culture Change blog to find out...
Do you actively manage the behaviour of your employees? Can you say, hand on heart, that you have put things in place in the business to ensure behaviours are under control? Is your Board asking you to? Are you clear on how you can influence the behaviour of others above or below you? If not, this article may provide you with some answers.
When I ask teams of executives if they can identify the business imperatives for culture in their organisation, one thing that is often mentioned is agility. "We need to become a lot more agile or flexible as an organisation."
More and more organisations want to be in a position to quickly respond to market changes, be the first to implement new ideas, or simply reduce bureaucracy. This question of agility appeals to all – small, medium and large organisations.
