About this event

About the Culture Design Series The ability to spearhead culture change in today’s rapidly changing startup environment is the difference between thriving or barely surviving. Join CULTURE LABx in a workshop series at General Assembly that showcases a variety of models in culture design: visual thinking, brand strategy, positive psychology, experience mapping and more.

August 11: Culture Design: Building Cultures of Innovation Is your company the Visionary, Tinkerer, Navigator, or Explorer? Struggling to maintain relevance as your company grows? All organizations are born innovative. Not all organizations stay innovative. And the ones that do, don’t stay innovative in the same ways. In this workshop we will explore the four archetypes of innovative cultures with Dr. Tatyana Mamut, SalesForce’s Innovation & Product Experience Leader. CULTURE LABx Co-Founder Josh Levine will host a fireside chat with Tatyana followed by an interactive session to identify the archetype workshop participants want to model, and the elements needed to help them live it. Takeaways In this discussion you’ll learn: The four archetypes of innovative cultures. The benefits and challenges each carry. How to identify your ideal archetype. Which elements you need to live it.
