HR Professionals Forum: How do leaders build powerful cultures for growth?

May 9, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Culture is not optional. It exists, either working for you or against you. Leaders who intentionally define and lead their culture have the foundations to use it as an asset for growth.

Accelerate Cape Town has partnered with Within People to host a global conversation with leaders about how clarity, belief and confidence helps leaders build winning cultures. Though research conducted in SA, UK and US, we explore how leaders understand culture, their role in creating it and some of the challenges and solutions along the journey.

Join us for an interactive session to share the outputs of this global study on how leaders use culture to align and focus teams. We will facilitate a group discussion to further draw on the wisdom in the group, explore insights and learnings both from the research and personal experience, and to understand:

  • How do leaders understand culture and what it means for growth?
  • How are leadings enabling their people to live company culture?
  • What role does culture play in building inclusive teams that embrace difference?
  • How are leaders building their confidence to manage the barriers to embedding culture?
