  3. 3. 3 Why Behavioural DNA? • Leadership is a strong influencer of culture • Culture is complex – challenging to “simplify” into an understandable visual • Culture impacts relationships, trust and therefore knowledge flow and performance • Different people have differing perspectives of the culture • Typically, an organisation has many subcultures • The Organizational Zoo creative metaphor provides a safe and fun way to stimulate inclusive and constructive conversations about behaviour and culture © Arthur Shelley 2021 Permission of the author required for commercial use or storage.
  4. 4. 4 How comfortable do you feel about the future? A. I worry a lot about the uncertainty and risks these involve. It is highly likely that there will be a long recession B. I acknowledge there is some uncertainty and this will make our lives difficult in the medium term C. I am a little unsure about the future, but feel it should be OK D. I am confident that we will recover from this in the medium term and things will evolve into a comfortable “new normal” E. I am excited about the opportunities such a disruptive change will enable, once we get past the health threat © Arthur Shelley 2021 Permission of the author required for commercial use or storage.
