The Shocking Truth About Faith In The Workplace: The Impact of Core Beliefs on Change

The ability of individuals and organizations to thrive and come back stronger in difficult situations (resilience) has a direct correlation to how well they adapt to and drive rapid disruptive change. Join Jennifer Eggers for an insightful and interactive discussion about resilience and the connection between resilience, faith, adaptive leadership and change…and why faith is critical at work.


After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify and understand the core components of resilience
  2. Link the importance of resilience to the ability to both adapt to and drive organizational change
  3. Understand the implications of being clear on core beliefs and why faith is important in the workplace


Regardless of where you put your faith (God, Buddha, Nature, your lucky rabbit’s foot, etc.) this session seeks to inspire and equip – not to espouse any particular faith.

The Ultimate Culture, Leadership and Performance Learning Map Experience

** Please note different week day and location **

Organizational culture and the impact on individuals, organizations and even society is a constant subject of interest. Culture is finally a part of leadership team discussions at most organizations in some form. Unfortunately, few truly understand it despite most CEO’s reporting culture as being critical to business success. The word “culture” has nearly lost its meaning due to the mix of over-simplified and incredibly complex solutions. The lack of understanding and intentional action, at a minimum, undermines change efforts and, at it’s worst, can lead to totally unacceptable behavior.





A new learning approach is needed to help leaders and change agents understand the complexities of culture, leadership and the connection to performance improvement in an accelerated environment. The Culture Journey Learning Map® experience was recently created to combine peer learning with targeted education based on facts and fundamentals about culture that are not widely understood.  Human Synergistics, Root Inc. and the Organizational Change Alliance have partnered to bring this very unique and effective learning experience to Atlanta.


Learning experience goals and content:

  • Learn and appreciate the complexity and unique culture perspectives of peers and experts sharing key learnings, experiences and culture-related concepts.
  • Understand how culture is originally created and the impact of history on the current state.
  • Understand the layers of culture and how qualitative and quantitative methods are used to build a common language and understanding.
  • Understand important aspects of the work climate that shape and reinforce the current culture.
  • Understand how culture evolves and paths that increase the likelihood of shared learning and positive results with any major change effort.
  • Learn approaches to engage leadership and the broader organization in change efforts that connect culture development and performance improvement.
  • Understand how the skills and behavior of leaders at all levels must evolve for sustainable culture change or development
  • Apply learnings at each step of the workshop to your own organization or organizations you work with through completion of the participant workbook.


Make the most of this unique, effective and energizing experience with others and bring one or more co-workers so you take advantage of learning from your unique cultural experiences and ideas.
