In this episode of Change: The Conversation we are back with Chris Carter, a change consultant and the founder and principal of orgshift solutions.
In this final conversation with Chris Carter, he tells us more about his experience with a suburban library that was facing a big change and transformation. We get deeper into how this organization approached Strategic Planning differently and why. Chris tells us about how the leader was the driving force behind this change, and how the approach to strategy was deeply linked with the leaders desire to change the organization from the inside out. We talk about how the vision was the thread that tied everything together and how culture was a driving force behind how this organization internalized this incredible change and sustained it.
Chris shares the tool he uses most often to assess and identify cultural attributes, and then, how to use this information to create meaningful change.
