Christine Reidhead and Tom Davis in their fourth episode discuss how cultural change can be affected within organizations. Key points are discussed on how organizations can implement cultural change successfully. Also, Davis discusses the methods of altering culture in any organization.
Davis in this podcast explained that it is the leader’s responsibility to describe the awareness about culture and what is required to make changes within any organization. Cultural change does not happen instantly. It is important to know who is responsible for change and why changes are being implemented in any organization. How we treat other people is the basis of our personality on which people react positively or negatively in response to our behavior. Davis also describes how group wisdom is more preferable than individual wisdom. The most important point of this episode is how leaders should have a more expansive view on things, than a narrow view.
Davis said that when anyone tries to change the vision, they need to relate with people and try to know more about them and understand their perspectives. You have to make progressive discussions with major groups of people within the organization, but when you try to implement rules, it is essential to discuss the changes within small groups. After hard work, credit is one of the most important and biggest things for the employer to do, people want credit for what they have done to help bring change.
