Cracking the Corporate Culture Code – Introducing UGRs

Steve Simpson

Leaders are now beginning to realize that their corporate culture fundamentally impacts on performance.

The problem is that most people fail to understand culture in simple and practical terms. What we don’t understand, we don’t manage. And what we don’t manage, we become victims of.

This session with international speaker and author Steve Simpson introduces his concept of UGRs – unwritten ground rules – hailed by companies across the globe as a breakthrough in helping people understand and strategically manage their workplace culture.

This session introduces the concept of UGRs and how they drive people’s behavior. You’ll see outcomes from world first research into UGRs undertaken by two Australian universities. Then you’ll be guided through the process of using UGRs to boost culture.
