Cultural Transformation

Much of what shapes organizational cultures is inherited from the past, and unobserved by us; it's something we have, and often don’t know where it came from or why.

As leaders, we want a culture that we create, rather than one we inherit. Often there are fundamental assumptions and unconscious paradigms that prevent us from creating what we want. To transform a culture, we need to understand where it came from and how things got to be the way they are. Unexamined, or unquestioned paradigms become "the way we do things around here," and as such, become barriers to change. These assumptions operate in the background and come to define the collective view. Consequently, the view prescribes a certain range of thinking, a certain field of possibilities.
