Theresa Hummel-Krallinger Presents:

Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast:

How to Create the “People Foundation” for Business Success

**This event will be held virtually via Zoom**

Program Overview:

It's been said that "culture eats strategy for breakfast." Without a healthy culture, and strong employee engagement, even the best strategy won't succeed. Learn from an experienced senior organizational development leader how to assess, build, and maintain the culture your organization needs to meet short and long term goals. Follow a case study of an organization that went from over 50% employee turnover and abysmal employee opinion survey results, to winning state and local Best Place to Work honors. See how HR can be a key driver in shaping organizational culture, and ultimately, business results.

• Assessing current culture

• Conducting conversations with and influencing senior leaders

• Preparing and implementing a comprehensive plan

• Mitigating the risks

• Measuring (and celebrating!) success

Learning Objective 1: Assess current culture and conduct conversations with senior leaders
Learning Objective 2: Prepare and implement an impactful plan that drives the behaviors that will lead to the achievement of business objectives
Learning Objective 3: Collect meaningful metrics that demonstrate progress on the plan
