In this highly interactive workshop, participants will use Appreciative Inquiry to identify ways to influence the employee experience and build alignment between organizational culture and talent management practices. Participants will begin by reflecting on their own personal role and opportunity to influence culture from where they sit within their organization. From there, we will work through the following four phases of Appreciative Inquiry: 

• Discover – Through storytelling, participants will discover “the best of what is and has been.”
• Dream – Placing perceived limitations and skepticism aside, participants will dream “what could be.”
• Design – Taking a closer look at which dreams have the most applicable potential in the near team, participants will prioritize “what should be.”
• Destiny – Lastly, participants will identify tactical action steps for “what will be.”

Learning Objectives:

1. Gain a clear understanding of what organizational culture is and how it forms.
2. Reflect on your own personal ability and opportunities to influence culture.
3. Learn the process of Appreciative Inquiry and how it can be applied to a variety of strategic initiatives. 
4. Develop a set of personal action steps to influence culture and align to talent management practices.
