Modern Workplace

The physical workplace is changing and in many cases dissolving into more and more remote work. This ads new requirements to the modern workplace where technology is becoming imperative when you wish to manage your team.

The Modern Workplace conference track focuses on how to do that effectively; balancing control and democracy in our day to day activities as well as our projects. Managing communication, information and KPI's in a way that fosters close and effective collaboration.

Mixed Messages, Competing Priorities and Disjointed Feedback – Addressing Paradox in Culture Change

We’ll look at dynamic tensions that become evident when driving culture change in an organization. What happens when strategies, feedback and messages are logical by themselves but when you put them together they don’t quite make sense?

How do these paradoxes impact the values and beliefs in an organization and what can you do about it?

Kim will provide a peek into some learnings she uncovered while working on global culture change at Pfizer and how to take steps to move past a co-existence of opposites.

You’ll have most of this session to leverage the great minds in the room to discuss any dynamic tensions you see in your organization’s culture and get peer feedback on how you can work past these observable tensions.
