Our big idea

Life is too short to be spent working in environments which seem to drain the very life from you, instead of bringing out your best.

Irrespective of generation, once the hygiene factor of money is taken care of, we all want our work to be enjoyable, and for it to have purpose and meaning. Working with purpose isn’t just a “millennial thing”. And we want teams who get on with each other, and with the job.

So we explored what options there were for learning what other companies were doing around company culture.  Big conferences, podcasts, books – they all have their place.  But when you want to learn a foreign language, the secret is to immerse yourself, surrounding yourself with those who are already fluent, and others who are on the same journey as you, who understand where you are coming from, understand your struggles, and keep you taking action.

As Simon Sinek says, it’s not about intensity – how long you do something in one hit – but consistency – how regularly you do something. You don’t get strong after going to the gym once for 9 hours, you get strong after going for 20 minutes each day, month after month.

What really moves the needle is ongoing regular immersion and access to all the support you need.

Which is why we created our successful monthly #CULTUREBites sessions and our annual all-day #CULTURE Immersions, to regularly immerse people in all things company culture, curating conversations with business leaders who actually walk the talk and have made huge differences to their results through creating a business which is whole, consistent, and complete, with complementary management, operations, strategy, and culture. 

What’s in it for you?

2 hour monthly* lunchtime immersions with collaborators and co-conspirators  

Belonging to #CULTUREBites gives you exclusive access to our curated bite-sized lunchtime company culture, disruptive leadership and workplace strategy masterclasses – think part mastermind think tank/part training session, where you get your voice heard.

It’s a rolling 12 month program, and each month you will be at the table lunching with a different leader, digesting a different topic, at a Sydney CBD location selected to enrich your experience.

Over two hours, you will get to mingle and munch, continuously immerse, improve and innovate, and be supported to rise to the challenges and optimise the opportunities that will develop you as a disruptive leader.  

Why immersions?

Small intimate gatherings where you ask the questions you want answered  

This is about you asking the questions you care about, and having conversations with leaders who are making a difference in their workplaces every day, not simply sitting and listening to a speaker.  You get to co-create the discussion.

As a Member, you’ll also have access to support and resources, all designed to help you grow your team, your leadership, your business skills and your network.

Whether you are a CEO, a business owner, an employee, team leader, middle manager or more, you have the ability to impact the culture of your team and your company – and your results. This is your opportunity to take time out, once a month, to focus on the strategy that will make a real difference to your results.

Where it’s at

Our #CULTUREBites sessions are always held in enriching environments, in the Sydney CBD.  We mix it up each month, so you get to explore and experience the difference great workspaces can make to the employee experience.

** During the pandemic, we will meet virtually, online, each month  **

 

 

 

 

When

All of our sessions are at 12pm – 2pm on the 3rd Wednesday of each month (except December & January when we are planning some different fun instead), so you can mark each month in your diary now.
