Culture is the biggest topic in the world right now - and the number one determinant of organizational success - yet it’s often put in the ‘too hard to change’ basket. For too long leaders have applied lip service responses or quick-fix solutions to culture change that don't actually affect behaviour change or else provide any improvements to people’s working lives. This needs to change.

Workplace culture specialist and best-selling author Colin D Ellis provides a practical culture toolkit of 26 tried and tested ideas that you can put into practice right now, regardless of where people are based. It’s through these simple and actionable ideas that over time can transform the way that work gets done. From emails to book clubs and meetings to podcasts, Ellis shows readers how to take regular steps to build a fantastic work culture that everyone wants to be a part of.

Changing your culture doesn’t need to be hard, and Culture Hacks empowers you with the actions needed to transform your working day so that you’re fit for the future of work.

Author Colin D Ellis is an award-winning international speaker, best-selling author and renowned culture change expert who works with organizations around the world to help them transform the way they get things done. He draws on more than 30 years of public and private sector leadership experience in the UK, New Zealand and Australia.

  • How you as a leader can “hack” your culture
  • How meetings drain your culture
  • Finding a way to trust in your team and culture
  • Why failing will tighten your organisation not divide it
  • How hobbies can bring your team together
  • Why starting a podcast will improve your culture
