Culture Renovation

For many organizations, proactively changing culture is a top priority post-pandemic. But the harsh reality is that only 15% of all culture change efforts end up being successful. In his groundbreaking book, Culture Renovation®, i4cp CEO Kevin Oakes uncovered specific actions organizations can take to create a healthy and agile culture.

Join i4cp experts for an interactive workshop to put these insights into practice at your organization. Using the book as a framework, you’ll learn how to utilize 3 critical phases and 18 action steps to spearhead a culture renovation and discuss the leader and HR actions that drive agility, growth, and an improved employer and consumer brand. In this workshop participants will explore how to:

  • Plan – the best methods to truly listen to your employees and gauge employee sentiment, identify aspects of your culture to keep and how to set your cultural path, and uncover the influencers that will act as culture ambassadors.
  • Build - how to clearly communicate the coming change, ferret out skeptics early, establish a co-creation mindset and consciously collaborate, and provide training on the desired leadership behaviors.
  • Maintain - how to execute actions that ensure structural soundness and longevity, how to improve existing talent programs which will reinforce the new culture and monitor and measure success.

Adaptive Teaming for Hybrid Work – Connected Commons Workshop

Monday, March 27, 2023 (in person) | 1pm - 5pm
$795/person | Eligible for 4 HRCI Credits

Adaptive Space

As the velocity of work continues to accelerate, team leaders no longer have time to follow a traditional team development pathway of forming, storming, norming, and performing. To reinvent the way we work in today’s hybrid reality, leaders need to adopt an adaptive teaming approach that addresses these needs within the flow of work.

Join this interactive workshop to learn how to design and support adaptive teams suited to different types of work.

This session will be led Michael Arena, former Amazon talent leader and author of Adaptive Space, and facilitated by the Connected Commons founding team. You’ll hear from thought leaders, proven practitioners, and attendees on today’s major teaming challenges, including:

  • How do you organize teams for different modes of work to optimize workflow?
  • What do team leaders need to do to manage both internal and external collaboration?
  • What are the critical relationships that hold a team together and how do you foster these connections?
  • How do you develop psychological safety and belonging for healthy teaming within the flow of work?
