Mindset & Performance - AmCham Conference, Ebay, Blanchardstown

Guest Speaker: Various

Proudly Sponsored by: Laya Healthcare

Laya Healthcare

International research has shown that culture contributes between 20% and 30% to the bottom line and those companies whose cultures emphasized all the key managerial constituencies and leadership from managers at all levels outperformed firms that did not have those cultural traits by a huge margin.*

Mindsets drive behaviours, and behaviours support (or obstruct) the management practices that lead to successful or unsuccessful change efforts. Bringing these mindsets to the surface and working with them is the only way to make sustainable change happen.

Established work patterns and habits, the corporate culture, can be changed and harnessed at all levels within an organisation to elevate performance while at the same time creating a fulfilled workforce. As an organisation's culture reflects a current set of behaviours, then to develop a culture that supports high performance we need to identify and change these behaviours.

Join the AmCham HR Leadership Group and The Pacific Institute on the 17th October from 8am to 1pm in Ebay, Blanchardstown as we explore how Mindset affects Performance and how to bring about sustainable change in your organisation. 

This conference is part of the HR Leadership 2014 Programme proudly partnered by Laya Healthcare. There is no charge to attend.


* John P. Kotter and James Heskett monitored corporate culture in 207 major US companies, in 22 different industries, over an 11 year period and their research showed a clear relationship between culture and performance.
