Culture Change: The Magic of Transformational Moments


May 7, 2020, 10:00 – 11:30 PM

The levels of uncertainty about what to do and how to behave in the face of major transformation can be very high and provoke stress reactions of fight, flight or freeze in their corporate forms. This pandemic that we all face today has forced us to transform our cultures. The question is, what aspects need to change and how?

About this event

With humanity in a time of uncertainty from the circumstances associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, we, as a society, have a once in a lifetime opportunity to rebuild the culture of our communities, organizations, companies, and teams.

We need to make sure that we come out of this pandemic stronger than ever, rather than going back to our old ways and outdated culture habits.

The ultimate question is then, what areas of culture do we need to rebuild in our communities, organizations, and teams?

Join us to learn more about Milwaukee's newly established Culture First chapter, how you can take an active role in this chapter, and openly discuss what tangible changes and culture elements need to be changed during this forced culture transformation.
