Introduction to Culture by Design


January 21, 2022



About This Episode

Welcome to “Culture by Design” a LeaderFactor Podcast.

My name is Timothy R. Clark and we’ll be taking this journey together. I’ve spent my career studying and leading organizational transformation, and I can tell you that culture is always the biggest challenge. In the 2020s, our shared aspiration is to create a sanctuary of inclusion and an incubator of innovation. Ok, but how do you do that?

Here’s the thing: You can approach culture by design or by default. Either way, in the end, you get a culture. But if you approach it by default, you should fully expect to get a culture you don’t want.

This podcast will provide you with the insights you need to create culture by design. We’ll bring together expertise from around the globe to discuss the unique challenges facing leaders working in highly dynamic environments.

We’ll cover a variety of topics, but always tie them back to the formation or reformation of culture. The principles and practices we discuss will help you scale your influence as a cultural architect.
