From Ed Schein to Richard Barrett and Fons Trompenaars, all CultureLab guests agree: leaders are the primary creators of cultures in organisations. It’s their values, behaviours, expectations and decisions that shape the hidden assumptions and unwritten norms in any group. 

Imagine what would be possible if you could talk in a way that connects with people's emotions and mobilizes them to action. 
Or craft stories that give meaning and illustrate what your team or your organization is truly about. Imagine what it would feel like to pitch your products or services at a 100% win rate...

For our organisations to create healthy cultures, we urgently need a new breed of managers: emotionally intelligent, able to give candid feedback, open, transparent and effective in leading organisational change. 


On March 13th, CultureLab was 10 episodes old. To celebrate, we’ve created this “best bits” compilation with some of my personal favourites.

When you reflect on perceptions around organisational culture, you’ll notice a paradox that’s hard to ignore.

Everyone talks about culture. It makes headlines of the major media outlets. It’s on the agenda of executive teams' meetings. Top of mind for Human Resources function. Key focus for all sorts of consultancies. And yet, in spite of all this hype (or is it because of it?), there are still plenty of misconceptions about it. 

Culture can be like the proverbial soap - often too slippery to grasp. My guest, Tim Kuppler - the Director of Culture and Organisation Development with Human Synergistics, is on a mission to make this deep and complex topic more accessible to an average person. And he does it brilliantly here.

Have you ever walked in a slightly dodgy neighbourhood?

With suspicious transactions in the shadows, littered sidewalks, a few abandoned buildings, walls covered in graffiti and gaping, broken windows? 

There’s some good news and some bad news.  

The good news is, you’ve been promoted. You’ll lead the team. You are the boss now.

And now the bad news - you predecessor is gone for a reason.
