HR transformation that's fair, just, inclusive, sustainable and high performing

In his latest ground-breaking book, TRANSFORMATIONAL CULTURE: DEVELOP A PEOPLE CENTRED ORGANIZATION FOR IMPROVED PERFORMANCE, David Liddle calls for organizations to adopt a radical new approach to company culture. HR transformation built on the foundations of fairness, justice, inclusivity, sustainability and high performance.

At a time when organizations are straining every sinew to build back better following some of the most turbulent times in the last 20 years, David Liddle argues that it is not possible to emerge with the old cultural paradigms still in play. Power, profit and process are no longer symbols of a successful organization.

This work on Transformational Culture defines the outcomes of culture for all stakeholders. To reach these outcomes, the Transformational Culture Model David Liddle proposes offers a blueprint for thinking and a roadmap for action to create culture at all four levels. The ideas are insightful and the tools practical and useable. Transformational Culture will be a useful guide for anyone wanting to move beyond advocacy that ‘culture matters’ to application to make ‘culture happen’. Bravo!

The next time I encounter yet another excuse for not addressing racism, injustice or fairness by an employer, I will whip out David Liddle’s Transformational Culture. I DARE every leader, manager, lawyer and HR person to read this book. He transforms outdated, rigid and harmful disciplinary processes based on retributive justice towards what this weary world needs: restorative justice: focused on learning and collective organizational safety

The Transformational Culture Model™ comprises 3 distinct elements:

HR transformation

  1. The Transformational Culture Hub is a cross functional team who work together to define the character of the culture. They develop the systems and the processes to integrate and sustain a transformational culture. The Transformational Culture Hub comprises executives, people and culture, unions, leaders, managers, employee groups etc
  2. The 8 enablers of a transformational culture are the vehicle by which the Transformational Culture is delivered. Each of the 8 enablers delivers a core strategic function. When combined, the 8 enablers work as a system delivering powerful organizational change and enhanced performance
  3. The 7Cs of transformation. These present the outputs from the Transformational Culture, which in turn drive the system and create a sustainable and self-perpetuating feedback process. A process which I describe as ‘cultural flow’
