Enabling cultural transformation through personal growth and leadership vulnerability in Financial Services

Business Agility Australia 2018

Adaptive Cultures and Genworth Australia have partnered on a cultural transformation over the last 18 months.

Yvonne McIntosh (head of OD for Genworth) and Adaptive Cultures (Alison Cameron and Andrew Brown) present a story that takes us from a financial services company where key leaders believed “there is no way leaders in our organisation will be vulnerable”” to an organisation well on its way to embedding and drawing strength from vulnerability, having honest conversations and embracing reflective learning as a key tool for growth..

Hear stories of transformation from the “trenches” of leaders having challenging conversations, revealing their deeper fears and beliefs and transforming relationships, teams, strategic alignment, speed to market and business and customer outcomes.

Hear stories from the CEO through to the frontline about how transparent conversations, the power of reflection and the courage to be vulnerable are evolving the organisations beliefs about the role it can play in the market. And how organisational beliefs are evolving alongside people’s shifting beliefs about themselves, what leadership is and the responsibility each person has to being their best selves.
