Culture change must be led. Line leaders cannot delegate the initiative to anyone else. While many organizational functions play important roles, the senior leadership team simply must maintain ownership of the process and lead the culture change at every level of the organization, ensuring that the change effort is prioritized correctly at the top of every management team agenda. To bring about the desired culture and results, leaders must take personal ownership of the implementation of each of the cultural transition best practices throughout the organization.

Many leaders will be doing some of these things for the first time in their careers. While skill building is always necessary for leaders to be most effective in the cultural transition, the speed at which culture change needs to occur does not usually allow for the luxury of building capability before leaders begin the process. Consequently, building skills to increase leadership proficiency in applying all of the best practices must occur in real time, simultaneously with the implementation of the cultural transition.

The coaching of leaders must commence in parallel with the change effort, and it must be implemented in the proper sequence so that they are developing, practicing, and applying the culture management leadership skills as they move forward with the Culture of Accountability Process. The Partners In Leadership Culture Track provides the training, planning, and coaching needed to help leaders perfect their ability to implement the C2 best practices and to accelerate the culture change.

"We rarely use consultants at CPI and have chosen to work with only three during my tenure as COO; a regulatory law consultant, a sales force compensation consultant and Partners In Leadership. These consulting relationships are ongoing and continue because of our level of trust created by a significant history of results. Partners In Leadership services are not inexpensive and CPI budgets are tight, but given the extent to which they are helping us change our culture, we've chosen to cut other expenses to finance the inclusion of Partners In Leadership training."
