Most leaders don’t realize that culture can be systematically shaped in a relatively short time, and specifically developed to drive their key strategies. I think if more leaders understood that, more would engage in it.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 01, 2014
A pioneer in the field of organizational culture, Dr. Larry Senn will provide insights and best practices from his decades of experience by serving as a faculty member of CultureUniversity.com, an educational website and blog dedicated to providing workplace culture awareness, education, best practices and expert insights to positively impact society on a global scale.
Senn joins a growing faculty of internationally recognized workplace culture experts who provide ongoing insights as CultureUniversity.com faculty members, including:
Edgar Schein – Professor Emeritus at the MIT Sloan School of Management and best-selling author of some of the most influential books on culture including Organizational Culture and Leadership and Humble Inquiry, The Gentle Art of Asking Instead of Telling.
Richard Barrett – Founder and chairman of the Barrett Values Center, global thought leader, and author of Evolutionary Coaching: A Values-based Approach to Unleashing Human Potential and The Values-Driven Organisation: Unleashing Human Potential for Performance and Profit.
Edward Marshall - President of the Marshall Group and a past senior partner with the Center for Creative Leadership, author of two best-selling business books: Transforming the Way We Work: the Power of the Collaborative Workplace, and Building Trust at the Speed of Change

“The world needs culture education since it is the most powerful force in organizations,” says Tim Kuppler, co-founder of CultureUniversity.com. He notes that he many leaders do not understand how much culture influences behavior, thinking, results and the bottom line. They are mystified about culture fundamentals and specifically how culture evolves in organizations. “As a result, CultureUniversity.com was born.”
Kupple describes Senn as one of the fathers of corporate culture and believes his insights will make a significant contribution to enhancing workplace culture awareness. Senn founded Senn Delaney as the original culture-shaping firm in 1978. It was well ahead of its time since the term “organizational culture” didn't exist as part of business terminology at the time. Senn's doctoral dissertation in 1970 was the first systematic field study ever done on the concept of corporate culture. Today, Senn Delaney, a Heidrick & Struggles company, is widely recognized as the leading international authority and successful practitioner of culture shaping that enhances the spirit and performance of organizations.
Other guest experts sharing insights on CultureUniversity.com include:
Tom Rath, best-selling author, senior scientist and advisor to Gallup
Jenn Lim, CEO & co-founder, with Tony Hsieh, of Delivering Happiness
Bill Neale, founder of the Neale Group and co-founder of Denison Consulting
Robert Cooke, president of Human Synergistics
Ted Coine, co-CEO of Switch & Shift
In the first in a series of regular articles, videos and interviews about culture, Senn will discuss the four key principles of successful culture transformation. “Most leaders don’t realize that culture can be systematically shaped in a relatively short time, and specifically developed to drive their key strategies. I think if more leaders understood that, more would engage in it,” says Senn.
Senn notes that CultureUniversity’s purpose complements Senn Delaney’s higher purpose, which is to positively impact the world by inspiring leaders to create thriving organizational cultures. "I am grateful to be a member of CultureUniversity.com’s esteemed faculty so that I can share insights we have learned from an exclusive focus on transforming cultures for more than 35 years.”
