Culture Fitness Training Berlin – First Impressions
First Culture Fitness Training
Culture Fitness Training is an open interactive workshop designed to make sense of and influence the culture of an organisation. It’s based on my Culture and Climate Check, an in-house course. Both aim at creating awareness of the culture we want and learn heuristics and tools that help raising trust and focus on the behaviours and structures we want. Organisations that want to innovate and grow, want their people to flourish, need to offer an environment where it is safe to fail, so that we can experiment.
The course started with a sense-making map of options, coalescing around needs, methods, theory and models. In the beginning we focused on building trust, using StrategicPlay®, Core Protocols and Temenos elements to inspire story telling.
We shared our understanding of culture, what it is, how to influence it. I used my new Vision Temenos haiku deck for inspiration:
We closed day one with a KrisMap (named Momo) and a first feedback round.
After reflecting on learnings and re-setting expectation the next topic was Cynefin. We created and ordered a large number of decisions and constructed the model from the data.
Then we went back to StrategicPlay and created a shared vision of the culture we want. We closed the workshop with a NVC exercise and an intensive feedback round.
Thanks to all six participants for two great days. I’m grateful you invested your time, contributed to the content and suggested improvements. I’m grateful for Steve preparing this workshop with me. Thanks to microTOOL for hosting us.
