Insights from The Ultimate Culture Conference

Dr. Rob Cooke kicked off the conference with a clear delineation between culture and climate. Many people confuse the two. What was really interesting was the paradox of how they work together. Culture is difficult to change but more strongly related to outcomes than climate. However, when you work on changing climate, you can change culture.
In Dr. Peter Fuda’s presentation, he shared how to Make an Impact, Increase Your Influence and Transform Results. Several points of learning:

  • Transformation is not a matter of intention, it’s about alignment (and action.)
  • Be a role model first and a preacher second.
  • You can’t motivate anyone to do anything they don’t want to do. People will tolerate the conclusions of others but will only act on their own conclusions. So don’t sell, create a gap between where they are and where they could be and then let them draw their own conclusions.

Marshall Goldsmith focused on coaching and change. The most important factor for successful change is the client, not the coach.
He explained that:

  • Coaching is not about your ego
  • If they don’t care, don’t waste your time
  • If you don’t care, don’t waste your time

He also made the point that the way to get better at everything is not to get better at everything. Pick one behavior that will make a significant positive difference for you. Figure out why this change will make a difference and then focus on that one change.
Dr. Edgar Schein talked about Humble Leadership. He made the case for replacing a leader | follower relationship with a leader | leader relationship. His presentation outlined the mindset, skills and attitude required by Humble Leadership. You’ll be able to read all about it when his book is released.
It was a great day full of learning and reconnecting with fabulous colleagues from around the world.
