Leaders Build Culture


New Workshop Explores A Leader’s Building Tools for Great Workplaces

In partnership with the Chicago Chapter of the Small Giants Community, the Center for Values-Driven Leadership will host a workshop on Friday, September 16th. The workshop, which includes lunch, will explore how senior leaders – CEOs, C-suite executives, and other top leaders – are the “architects of culture” in their organizations.

Management scholar Edgar Schein says leaders are the main architects of culture. If that’s true, what are the architect’s building materials? And how do you build a culture that withstands complexity and volatility, crosses boundaries of all kinds, and cares for people while pushing for success?

In this session, we’ll share stories (drawn from research) of successful workplace cultures in all their complexity; discuss frameworks for exploring your company’s culture; and share direct ways you can serve as an architect of culture within your organization.
