The Culture Journey Experience

Organizational culture and its impact on individuals, organizations, and even society are constant topics of interest. Culture has finally become a part of leadership team discussions at most organizations. Unfortunately, few truly understand it despite most CEOs reporting culture as being critical to business success.

Culture Journey Learning Map Experience

A new approach is needed to help leaders and change agents understand the complexities of culture, leadership, and their connection to performance improvement in an accelerated environment. The Culture Journey Experience was created to combine peer learning with targeted education based on facts and fundamentals about culture, climate, and change management that are not widely recognized. Human Synergistics leveraged the expertise of Root Inc., leaders in organizational change, to develop this interactive and engaging experience. The experience is facilitated in tables of 6 to 10 participants based on the Root Learning Map® methodology, which utilizes visuals, two-way dialogue, reflection questions, data, scenarios, and a workbook.

  • Build a common language for understanding the layers of culture using qualitative and quantitative methods.
  • Culture Journey Learning ExperienceDiscover how cultures change and identify paths that increase the likelihood of shared learning and positive results with any major change and development effort.

Benefits of The Culture Journey Experience

  • Supports the value of Constructive culture and leadership development as participants learn why quick fixes and climate approaches fall short.
