Toast #002: Management and HR – Cultivate your culture
In our next Breakfast Briefing on February 27th, speaker Magnus Wood, co-founder of The Business Buddha, will explore how to cultivate your culture.
You’ve probably been in meetings where purposes have been defined, values debated and visions agreed. In other words, you’ve helped shape the top layer of your culture sandwich. You’ve then discussed this with the people who’ll do the actual work – colleagues who provide the base layer of your sandwich. However, as yet there’s nothing in the middle to make the sandwich complete. Just an emptiness where negative behaviours on positive culture can thrive. Until you fill this space with good stuff, all you have is a Culture Air Sandwich.
Having headed up toxic organisations, Magnus has identified the Five Keys to Filling the Culture Air Sandwich. He’ll share original research and his proven strategies for avoiding the damage they can cause. Toast is now fully booked but if you’d like to join the waiting list, please email us.
