How to deliver a training course on corporate culture

This organizational culture skills training course targets the challenges faced by line-staff, human resource professionals, general managers, and senior executives in all sectors of the industry.

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

The first tip is that 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.

The second tip is that understanding culture isn’t just a tick-box exercise. In it’s 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.

The third tip is that 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.

For best results, you can use the training content provided to explore organizational structures, several images of organizations, and how to compare corporate cultures.

Read on to learn more about the content. And, we will also highlight ways where you can build audience engagement by using the material provided.

Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how to deliver the key sections of this training course.

What is organizational culture – It’s pretty safe to say that most people have come across the terms organizational culture and corporate culture.

The truth is many people use these phrases interchangeably. That’s why you should start this section by using the content to discuss the differences between organizational culture and organizational climate. It’s essential to consider the backgrounds of your audience. This awareness is one of the reasons why the tone of your delivery should mirror the experience levels of your audience.

When it comes to driving these concepts home, one of the most powerful ways is to explore the primary characteristics of a corporate culture. This is something we frequently hear from clients with leadership development needs. For best results, be sure to share your reflections on organizational culture. Don’t be afraid to explore your experience and how they shape your thoughts on organizations. But here’s the best part, experiences define who we are, and when shared with training sessions, they contribute to higher engagement rates and will positively embed learning.

Images – Images of organizations matter. But, with this awareness also comes challenges. For example, what images matter? How are they generated? How are they maintained? What happens if the image crafted is not the right one to select?

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. That way, your audience will get to safely discuss how some or none of these fit their companies. Be aware that some members of your audience may fear the role of images within companies. Though their impressions may be different, you should expect that some may have concerns. You must listen to these concerns and support them wherever you can.

At this stage, it’s critical to look a little deeper into why we need to consider corporate in our life and work. And what this could mean for us as individuals and companies. Begin by using the content to explore the “cultural web” and structural perspectives. These will help you dig a little further into the whole area of organizational culture. And use these discussions to explore the different attributes of a corporate culture.

Comparing cultures – The next critical step is to use the materials to discuss the Ouchi framework and the excellent organization. As all the material provided is customizable and it’s always a good idea to include a company or industry-specific examples. These will further encourage your audience to engage as the content becomes uniquely relevant to them as a group.
