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.

Defining Purpose By popular demand, we are re-hosting this workshop (note: date changed from 9/1 to 9/8). Zappos’ CEO Tony Hsieh founded Delivering Happiness (DH) as a grand experiment to bring more authentic happiness to the workplace. DH has grown into a cutting-edge culture architecture firm that partners with startups, large organizations and governments across the globe to create flourishing, sustainable cultures.

“Can Higher Purpose Help Your Team Survive and Thrive?” Research shows it’s crucial to create purpose statements at different levels of the organization, not just at the top. Join Niki Lustig, Learning + Organizational Development at Twitter and a Delivering Happiness “Culture Champion,” along with Brad Wolfe, Culture Architect at Delivering Happiness, to help you craft your team’s purpose statement.
