About This Week’s Guest
Tim is the Director of Culture & Organization Development with Human Synergistics. He also founded CultureUniversity.com which features insights from top culture experts. He led major performance and culture transformations regionally and globally as an automotive supplier executive so he has loads of practical experience. He now collaborates with many culture experts and focuses on driving meaningful change in the world through culture awareness, education, and action.
His three tips to become more culturally competent are:
- Understand Culture Fundamentals from the top expert in the world.
- Commit to a personal and organisational learning journey. If you’re changing your organisational culture it is not a one-time effort.
- You have to connect your first initiatives to either a top problem, challenge or goal.
