Module 2: Organization-Focused Change - How to Change an Organization's Culture and Outlook?
WHAT IS THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS Course?
Successfully managing change requires you to simultaneously conduct interventions both on individual and organizational level. In sprint one we shed light on the individual level with emphasis on changing employee attitudes and habits. In this second module we will have a look at organizational level change. You will learn how to impact organizational culture and how to change an organization's outlook into the future.
Psychological research has consistently demonstrated that one of the largest influences on employee performance, satisfaction, motivation, and collaboration ability is organizational culture (Belias & Koustelios, 2014). Organizations that are warm, interdependent, and dynamic are typically healthier, more thriving organizations. Conversely, organizations that are cool, judgmental, or alienated typically have negative workplace outcomes, low retention, and low employee satisfaction.
Is it time to reorient your organization’s outlook? Are you company’s goals too short-term and reactive, rather than far-reaching and proactive? Does it feel as though people are always scrambling to deal with emergencies and “put out fires”, when ideally your organization would be taking carefully planned steps?
