Creating a High Performance Culture

Organisational culture, once established, has important influences on the strategy of an organisation. Although a judiciously shaped strategy may make or break a company, the influence of the organisational culture is paramount because it may make or break the strategy. Also, managers’ strategic choices are underlined by the belief systems or culture of their organisation. The culture influences the managers and the managers influences the culture.

Key Objectives of Training

Strategy is about the critical issues in organisations, making timely decisions and leading people through difficult and often uncomfortable changes. Anticipating and responding to change with appropriate strategic choices is a major challenge of management and leadership. Effective leadership can help to bring people with you and ensure their help and support.

Also, a strategic change which does not take the culture of the organisation into account is usually fraught with difficulties because strategic change can be impeded through rigid cultural and behavioural patterns.

Importantly, a weak organisational culture is a recipe for inefficiency, poor performance and below-par service delivery. We will look at the challenges posed by local cultural values and norms and discuss their impact on your organisational strategy, processes and the delivery of service in your organisation.

Thus, this interactive training is designed to give individuals and departments an in-depth understanding of the complexities of creating a high-performance culture to succeed in an increasingly dynamic environment. Our overarching aim is to provide insight in and understanding of the management challenges associated with developing and fostering a high-performance work culture.

Overall, the training is designed to provide up-to-date information and knowledge in major areas of Organisational Culture, Strategy, Leadership and Change Management. This will assist in improving the collective capacity of individuals and departments in your organisation.
