Principles of Organisational Culture Change

Culture changes everything

We believe in an organisational culture that’s better for everyone – leaders, employees and end-users. That means giving everyone the opportunity to participate in its creation, making it practical so it’s more than just words on a slide, and recognising that the greatest organisational cultures are the ones that give people the space to grow, collaborate and enjoy the work they do.

We build culture with people, not to them

We believe in culture change that gives everyone a say in the type of place the want to create.

We make the process practical

We believe that culture should be practical – so people can see and feel the benefits of making a change.

Creating the right kind of disruption

We believe that change should disrupt in positive and nourishing ways – not make people lives more difficult.
