We are pleased to have Tom Rausch and Midge Streeter co-facilitate our June discussion around many of the topics evolving from the culture rejuvenation movement, including: skills, competencies and resources required to develop, support and implement culture shaping initiatives.
“Culture” is the hot buzzword in business these days, and with good reason. As CEOs embrace the impact of shaping and guiding culture shifts, more and more news is in the forefront that causes organizational development practitioners to question their role in support of culture rejuvenation initiatives.
The chatter is coming from all directions of research, application, theory and practice. Many of the thought leaders in culture rejuvenation are CEO’s who are successfully guiding their organizations to higher levels of performance through engaging employees, customers and stakeholders in dialog round a higher purpose.
Corporate higher purpose is a movement within an organization designed to galvanize hearts and minds of customers and employees which creates greater loyalty and focus around common cause of inspiration in addition to economic outcomes.
