    2.30 pm - 3.00 pm Journey to Achievement Culture

    Organisational Culture is defined as the shared beliefs, norms and expectations that govern the way people approach their work and interact with each other. High-performing organisations leverage on their values, structures, systems, job design and the skills and qualities of their leaders and members to create a constructive culture that results in high employee satisfaction, motivation and role clarity, low levels of stress, effective inter- and intra- unit cooperation, external adaptability, quality and superior customer services, and safety. However, this requires hard work. Join Victoria to learn about her journey helping her organisation shift a predominantly defensive culture into a constructive one by developing the coaching skills of leaders, aligning culture and customer insights and continuing to increase the self-awareness of the organisation’s leaders. In line with the company’s culture transformation, they experienced reductions in staff turnover, increase in employee workplace advocacy, increased staff referrals, improvements in customer service and financial performance.
