Culture change is a journey that takes time and effort at every level in the organization.
A strong corporate culture is necessary for strong company performance. And if you are going through or planning a culture change in your organization, know this: Organizations with effective change and communication are 3.5 times as likely to significantly outperform their peers but only one in four change projects are successful in the long run.1
With that in mind, we’ve put together a tip sheet, 10 Tips for Guiding Culture Change, to help you set up your organization’s culture change for success. Each of the 10 tips provided include a brief description on how to achieve them.
Some of the topics include:
- Set your sights on long-term success, not just quick wins
- Create a guiding coalition of “change agents”
- Ensure leaders are able, ready and accountable
- Listen carefully and respond religiously
- Assess and create communication channels
And 5 more!
The desired culture is formed when words get translated into daily actions, and actions inside the culture reinforce the words.
You can’t achieve your goals unless employees understand where they’re going. They want to know what’s expected of them so they can make a meaningful contribution. Use this tip sheet to help you get there and keep everyone up to date on your company’s changes.
