Organization culture has a known impact in the ability of leaders to implement change in organizations. Organization culture, defined as the shared beliefs and values held by organization members that provide meaning and also shape how work is accomplished, is meant to be a stabilizing force within the enterprise. And most organizations are comprised of the enterprise culture and a number of sub-cultures within business units and departments. And while difficult to change, culture often needs to at least shift in order to implement successfully critical organization or department initiatives.
Social work leaders play an important role in defining organization culture within their organizations as members of organization leadership, and within their departments as leaders within healthcare systems and other organizations. This webinar will provide social work leaders with a broader understanding of the impact of organization culture, along with several important principles and practices to consider when working towards realignment of culture.
