Publisher's Summary

The secret to the success or failure of any business boils down to its culture.

From disengaged employees to underserved customers, business failures invariably stem from a culture problem. In The Insider’s Guide to Culture Change, acclaimed culture transformation expert and global executive Siobhan McHale shares her proven four-step process to demystifying culture transformation and starting down the path to positive change.

Many leaders and managers struggle to get a handle on exactly what culture is and how pervasive its impact is throughout an organization. Some try to change the culture by publishing a statement of core values but soon find that, aside from some short-term lip service, no meaningful change happens. Others try to unify the culture around a set of shared goals that satisfy shareholders but find their efforts backfire as stressed employees throw their hands up because "leadership just doesn’t get it." Others implement expensive new IT systems to try to bring about change, only to find that employees find "workarounds" and soon go back to their old ways.

Culture transformation expert Siobhan McHale defines culture simply: "It’s how things work around here."

The Insider’s Guide to Culture Change walks listeners through McHale’s four-step process to culture transformation, including how to:

  • Understand what "corporate culture" really is and how it impacts every aspect of the way your organization operates
  • Analyze where your culture is broken or not adding maximum value
  • Unlock the power of reframing roles within your company, to empower and engage your employees
  • Utilize proven methods and tools to break through deeply embedded patterns and change your company mind-set
  • Keep the momentum going by consolidating gains and maintaining your foot on the change accelerator

With The Insider’s Guide to Culture Change, watch your employees go from followers to change leaders who drive an agile culture that constantly outperforms.

A great guide and future reference on how to embrace change and how to prepare and encourage it.

This insightful perspective is just what I wanted from a book and wish more companies, bosses and management to take these steps with implementation of change and growing their culture. I want to be a CVO after reading this book.

A must read for Change professionals.

As a change professional who could walk you through the change process and their models, this book was like sending me to a refresher course. I could not put it down. The case studies that are referenced throughout was presented more from a storyteller approach. She masterfully walk us through the door of the engagement/leadership meetings etc. We all talk of the Big C, but this books gives you a very good understanding of culture and the approach used in understanding culture. I followed up with her for an in depth interview of my CEO Series show and she gave the guest so many takeaways and the feed back was phenomenal. I even got a request from a conference producer who hear her on the show and wanted her contact for a speaking opportunity. My advice: BUY THE BOOK...you will not be disappointed.
