Company Culture Bootcamp
Jan

Feb 28

Company Culture Bootcamp

Keen to develop your company's culture but find you don't get as much value as you hope for from big events and meetups? Find you're often at a different level to others in the room, meaning you don't learn as much as you'd like? Can't always attend events in-person?

Sign up to the Culturevist Company Culture Bootcamp.

Structured course.png

Guided Six Week Course

Six structured 90 minute group workshops offering a high-value peer-to-peer learning experience. These will be online with each of us participating using group video calls. Between each session there will be tasks to work on independently that could take approximately an hour each week.

Outcome

You'll leave the course having deepened your understanding in multiple aspects of company culture. These will be based on real-world examples and insights.

TeamDoodle.png

Learn In A Handpicked Small Team

We've found people learn best in small teams with things in common and difference, rather than in big rooms of the people who happen to turn up. You will be placed into a tight multi-company team of up to 5-7 people and we'll learn from each other. The 'external' perspectives will help to inform your thinking and keep it fresh.

Outcome

You'll form a personal support network that you can continue to communicate with for help beyond the bootcamp.

Specifics Doodle.jpg

Get Help With Specifics & Create A Personalised Action Plan

Rather than just hearing abstract theory or so-called 'best practice', you'll share the specific cultural challenges/opportunities you're most interested in, and receive specialist advice from your peers and Matthew Partovi.

Outcome

You'll create a personalised 'action plan' for how you'll strengthen your company's culture as a result of participating in the bootcamp. Actual activities you and your colleagues can do to see impact.

Dates: When enough people have registered interest in one of the Bootcamps, you'll be written to with the next course dates.

Cost: The six week bootcamp experience is GBP £960 (approximately USD $1170), payable once your place has been confirmed, in advance of beginning of course. 

Application Deadline: Register your interest as soon as possible as space is extremely limited - to create a rich learning environment there are only 5-7 places on each Bootcamp.

Participation: To help team bonding, we'll participate using our video and voice on either our laptop/computer or mobile device. The Bootcamp is currently in English.

Culturevist Deep-Dive: 'Millennials' Special

With all the talk about 'Millennials', it's time we went deep on the topic. What's the impact to the way we work, the way we manage, and our culture. How should Millennials be managed differently? What does that even mean? Who is a Millennial? Someone born after a certain date? Someone with a certain mindset? Are we all Millennials? We'll be hearing from people including:

 

Kate, Airbnb

 


The purpose of this event is for us to discover, and learn from, others deeply interested in the topic.

Networking Event: How Do We 'Scale' Our Company Culture?

  • BDG, East Studio Riverside Walk, Sea Containers

How do we 'scale' company culture? If we're in a large company with a pocket of something we really like, how do we spread that to more of the organisation? If we're a small and growing company, how do we not lose that something special?

 

Join us for an evening of networking, with a few short talks from Culturevists sharing our stories. Big thanks to BDG for hosting us and providing drinks and light nibbles.

Each event we prefer to have more ‘in-house' people (whose role does not involve consulting or selling company-culture-related products or services to other companies) than people who help other companies (whose role involves consulting or selling company-culture-related products or services to other companies). The purpose of attending our events is to learn about culture, rather than to sell what we do. If your role involves helping other companies, we'd love you to join, and to do so you need to bring at least one person who works in-house - here's how: 1. Add your name on the Waiting List. 2. Ask your in-house contact to register their ticket. 3. Contact me to let me know who you introduced that will be attending and I'll release your ticket for you to register.

Joining details and format will be shared with those that sign up. As always, this is an experiment - we're not sure what exactly will happen.

How do we bring our Values to life? How do we help people make sense of, interpret, and make decisions based on our Values, without forcing them upon people?

A bit about Airbnb

  • Airbnb started in 2008 with accommodating three guests on air mattresses in a loft. In 2014 the company was valued at approximately $10 billion.
  • Airbnb, who doesn't own the real estate, offers more rooms than many of the largest hotel groups in the world – Hilton, InterContinental and Marriott — which each maintain just under 700,000 rooms.
  • They're growing *fast* and care deeply about culture. One of CEO Brian Chesky's articles was entitled: Don’t Fuck Up the Culture.
