Improving our culture: Culture Lead training to begin September 22

Are you having a BLUE day? A blue day is a good thing when we’re talking about Culture.

Using the Human Synergistics circumplex measuring culture, blue represents a constructive style of culture.

What is a constructive culture? Constructive is a combination of many things including working collaboratively within and outside your department/division, feeling appreciated and valued, letting others know they’re appreciated and valued, thinking outside the box to develop creative solutions, and much more.

The university’s effort to improve culture is ongoing. We completed town hall meetings in July and department/division workshops in August, and we now are planning training for Culture Leads. Culture Leads will meet with university faculty, staff, and leadership to obtain input on improving the university’s culture. During the training, Culture Leads will receive tips on eliciting input, providing effective communication, and developing culture plans for their areas. The summary results from last month’s deep dive themes will be provided to the Culture Leads during the training.

Culture Lead training is scheduled for four different dates/times. Each training course is expected to last approximately one hour. The training courses are scheduled for September 22, 23, and 26.
