Course overview


It’s the way we do things around here and the way we don’t.

In fact, culture is part of every part of a company. From the products and services developed, the people, and the processes that link it all together.

Course participants will be introduced to the world of organizational culture, be presented with different images of organizations, and will learn how to compare organizational cultures.

The course targets people serious about developing their understanding of organizational culture, and who are ready to bring their learning to the next level.

Course outline

Below, we break down how you can present the 3 key sections of this training course.

1. Introduction to organizational culture

Before you begin your presentation of this material, ask yourself “what are the goals of your audience?”

Place yourself in their shoes.

What do they want to learn?

What do they need to learn?

And, how will you meet those needs?

This starting point will ensure that you deliver the best possible training course.

Discuss the differences between organizational culture and organizational climate. Again, it’s essential to consider the backgrounds of your audience. This awareness will shape the tone of your delivery. And, it will mirror the experience levels of your audience.

Next, explore the primary characteristics of the corporate culture. This is something we frequently hear from clients with leadership development needs.

The fastest way to increase awareness is to share your reflections on organizational culture. Don’t be afraid to explore how they shape your thoughts on organizations. This sharing will contribute to higher engagement rates. And, it will positively embed learning.

2. Understand different images of organizations

Every company that you’ve ever known has images that shape how they operate.

In fact, images of companies matter.

So how do you begin to share the pivotal way images get used within companies?

A surprisingly simple, but helpful, way to share this is to use the content to:

  • Outline the primary images that get used. Your audience will get to discuss how some or none of these fit their companies.
  • Dive a little deeper into why we need to consider corporate culture. And, what this means.
  • Explore the “cultural web” and structural perspectives.
  • Discuss the different attributes of corporate culture.

This section will help your audience feel more connected to the content. And, they will build more practical skills.

3. How to compare organizational cultures

Now that you’ve introduced organizational culture and images of organizations, it’s time to share how to compare organizational cultures.

Use the material to discuss the Ouchi framework and the excellent organization.

Build more engagement by incorporating examples from your own experiences.

Getting started

To help you get the most value from this content we want to share some extra tips that will help when delivering this training content.

  • First, teaching others about corporate culture isn’t without its challenges. It’s usually due to the fact that people will look for expert advice all the time, but that doesn’t mean they are ready to hear that advice.
  • Second, understanding culture isn’t just a tick-box exercise. In its purest form, organizational culture “is how we do things around here.” And, it’s generally evident in the shared values, procedures, opinions, images, structures, and expectations of a company. It’s important that you keep this in mind as you deliver this training material.
  • Third, culture can determine how people will behave, how motivated they are, and it even can be seen within their performance. However, many people, without the right development, are just not aware of this aspect and can fail to understand these dynamics. If your audience can adapt, that’s how they will win and understand various types of cultures that exist in companies.
  • Fourth, use the training content provided to explore organizational structures, several images of organizations, and how to compare corporate cultures.
