Yesterday SAP invited me to join their radio program called “Game Changers” to talk about transforming corporate culture within organizations. We talked about collaboration, millennials, the future of work, and a whole bunch of other things.
I joined Sarah Cooke, associate vice president from Great Place to Work and Deb Stambaugh, the senior director of talent marketing from SAP. We had an hour long chat about culture and the future of work and it’s one of the more up-beat and fun radio appearances I’ve done. Here’s the show description:
“The buzz: Culture. How do you start your business day? Peter Drucker says, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” Increasingly, companies today see workplace culture as fundamental to success. But if your organization’s culture is not serving your business goals, changing it and getting your employees to embrace the change can be a daunting uphill challenge. Would you like to know what works and doesn’t work for companies that have successfully climbed this steep slope? The experts speak. Jacob Morgan, Chess Media Group: “”Work as we know it is dead”. Sarah Cooke, Great Place to Work: “In most organizational change efforts, it is much easier to draw on the strengths of the culture than to overcome the constraints by changing the culture” (Prof. Edgar Schein, MIT Sloan School of Management). Deb Stambaugh, SAP: ““If you get the culture right, most of the other stuff will just take care of itself” (Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos). Join us for Driving Culture Change: Easier Said Than Done.”
If you have some time, take a listen, it’s a fun show!
