Organizational Culture Training Materials


Many discussions of organizational culture leave people confused when it comes to their own organization.

In order to develop a better understanding of organizational culture and better help people struggling with this concept, we need to teach people the basics and what it should mean to them.

We created this organizational culture training toolkit for professionals to help others understand organizational culture, images of organizations, and how to compare organizational cultures.


Our organizational culture training, appropriate for all management and line staff levels, moves beyond basic information to focus on helping your participants learn how to identify different images of organizations and understand the cultural web required to successfully deliver a successful organization.

Focusing on introducing the key characteristics of organizational culture, participants will learn that the main characteristics are:

  • Member Identity.
  • Group Emphasis.
  • People Focus.
  • Unit Integration.
  • Control.
  • Risk Tolerance.
  • Reward Criteria.
  • Conflict Tolerance.
  • Means-End Orientation.
  • Open System Focus.

Drawing on real-life experience our course also examines the relationship between culture and organization. And, the course highlights a structural perspective of organizational culture. This is something we frequently hear from clients with organizational behavior training needs.

This organizational culture training course helps participants to better understand the relationship between culture and the organization, the key characteristics of organizational culture, and how to identify different images of organizations.

Organizational culture training also promotes insights into the cultural web and also serves to highlight excellence within an organization.

The course supports your leaders and line staff by sharing the strategies and techniques for shaping a company culture that promotes success for both the organization and the people involved.

All content can be rebranded and customized.

Why you should present an organizational culture training course

We designed this course to target the following training needs.

  • First, one of the most common pitfalls for learning and development professionals is that senior management doesn’t prioritize learning in the workplace. However, in a positive revelation, 62% of CEOs surveyed by LinkedIn prioritize learning in their organization in the US  (LinkedIn Learning, 2021).
  • Second, it cannot be easy to promote continuous improvements in terms of learning consistently, but lately, there has been a shift in learning cultures within companies. To illustrate, the World Economic Forum established that 94% of business leaders expect employees to pick up new skills on the job. Once you learn that business leaders embrace on-the-job learning, you naturally appreciate how developing organizational culture skills will be appropriate.
  • Third, Gartner reveals that 70% of employees believe they don’t have the skills they need to succeed in their jobs. This is why it’s more important than ever for you to start promoting a learning culture and developing organizational culture skills in the workplace.
