Details

The need to create positive, engaging, high performing cultures has never been as high on the organisational agenda as it is now.
 

Communication is a key lever in doing this, but its role is often misunderstood and communicators are either asked to do the wrong thing or are involved too late to make a difference. This course will tackle these problems head on. It will debunk several myths about organisational culture and values and equip delegates with powerful practical knowledge and tools to help them put communication and themselves in the heart of culture change management.  

Please be aware that this is a rigorous course that challenges practitioners to see the complex connection between cultural theories and effective communication practice. In doing so the course aims to enable delegates to not just ‘do culture communication’ but to ‘lead culture communication’, including be able to challenge and guide business leaders effectively through communicating culture change. To draw maximum benefit from the course, delegates should ideally have experience working at a relatively senior level in a related role

  • Understand how culture works and how culture change happens
