Keynote: Leading Cultures: Introducing ‘UGRs

These are extraordinary times – never before have we seen a combination of low employment resulting in staff shortages combined with the move to hybrid working arrangements. These forces elevate the need for teams and organisations to get their culture ‘right’. This presentation from Steve Simpson will introduce his concept of UGRs – unwritten ground rules – used as the vehicle to understand and transform cultures across the world. The simplicity of the concept belies its power to make fundamental and lasting impacts on workplace cultures.

Workshop: Transforming Cultures – the ‘How to’ Masterclass

Steve will walk through the five-step approach to improving workplace cultures and will outline the three principles that characterise organisations that are necessary to enable and sustain high performing workplace cultures.
