Change Your Creative Culture
Overview- How will this help members make better decisions?
We’ve all heard the line that “culture eats strategy for breakfast”. But how do you change the culture of your organisation if you think it’s holding you back? How do you make your business more creative, and get the most out of your best people and their ideas?
Your business culture is made up of thousands of decisions, attitudes and expectations. It evolves over time and often without a conscious plan. Your culture can make the difference between motivated or demotivated staff; between evolving or stagnating in your market.
This workshop helps leaders take a step back, look at the culture that has grown up around them and start to make it more creative. Steve Rawling developed these techniques during a decade spent helping one of the world’s most creative organisations change its culture.
- Understand the importance of creative culture for innovation, staff motivation and your organisation’s ability to respond to changing business environment.
- Learn practical steps to make ideas flow more freely within your organisation.
- Give leaders greater confidence to address long-standing cultural problems.
Workshop will cover: three ways to grow your organisation’s creative culture:
- Identify: the cultural blocks and barriers to creativity (through stories, surveys and conversations with key stakeholders)
- Act: practical steps (tools, events and systems you can introduce get ideas flowing across your teams)
- Reinforce: your creative culture in how you respond to new ideas
- Delegates will practice each step, using real life creative or innovation challenges that they are currently working on.
What’s the one big idea delegates will come away with?
There’s nothing inevitable about culture. If you want your teams to come up with new ideas, there are practical steps you can take to make your culture more creative.
Practical takeaways: simple tools to identify existing barriers to creativity and encourage teams to step beyond them; positive ways to respond to new ideas in your organisation. These include changes members can make within one month and see results.
