The Networking Night Workshop will focus on cultural transformation and provide space for new-thinking about employees as “people”. If companies start to think of employees as "people" or consumers (ie. they can always go elsewhere), then all of a sudden we think about "people management" in a new way. It's not just a way to integrate HR processes, it's a series of strategies, programs, investments, and promises that make everyone's life, work, and career better for them (not just the company). This is where work is going - we now work in a world of independent free agents, each of which is like a voluntary "consumer" who may choose to stay or leave.


"People Management" means "creating a people environment." The company creates a definable culture (driven from leadership), hires against that culture, empowers people to deliver, and holds them accountable to results. And the scaffolding around this includes a great work environment, lots of development opportunities, great benefits and pay, and a culture of inclusion and coaching. These are all things which HR talks about, but they go well beyond "integrated talent management."

Conscious Culture - How to Build a High Performance Workforce through Values, Ethics, and Leadership

Change is the new norm in society, and it's having a devastating impact on organizations. The proof? Insecure, demoralized employees and the lowest levels ever of employee engagement. North America employee engagement is between 26-30 percent, and in Asia it's between 6-12 percent. That's a lot of untapped employee potential!


In Conscious Culture, Joanna Barclay shares thirty years of business transformation experience. Leaders learn how to awaken the life-force energy within values, ethics, and leadership that ignites performance and employee engagement. With the ABCs of culture change, she provides a blueprint for leaders to consciously create a high-performing, values-driven organization.


Values energize us-they give us joy when they are lived and frustration when they are not. They embody our heart and soul, calling us to action and helping us perform to our highest potential. Leaders will learn the importance of facilitative leadership and how to tap the wisdom of the group, unify employees, and connect hearts and minds to create a WOW culture.


Conscious Culture is for leaders who want to:

  • become an employer of choice and build a high-performing work environment

  • learn how to generate greater engagement and increase productivity

  • build a new culture after a merger or acquisition

  • transition from personal excellence to organizational excellence


How are you consciously investing in your culture-or do you have unconscious, default culture?
