TYSONS CORNER, Va., July 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Management Concepts, the nation’s premier provider of professional development, performance improvement, and human capital solutions for the public sector, today announced its sponsorship of the “Changing the Culture of Government” event with the National Association of Public Administration on July 28, 2016.

This morning event will consist of a panel discussion and keynote address on organizational culture, which is built through shared learning and mutual experience. This forum will help define problems, challenges, and goals currently affecting the Federal government. Attendees will to learn how to translate values into specific expected behaviors so that new behavioral “norms” are reached and re-enforced – allowing real culture change to take place. 

Kathy Johnson, Managing Director for Organizational Culture Alignment at Management Concepts will provide opening remarks, while Tim Kuppler, Director of Culture and Organizational Development at Human Synergistics, Inc. will highlight the differences of climate vs. culture.

Following a panel discussion, Dr. Cheryl Seminara, Director of Employee Development at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), will provide the keynote, “Changing the Culture of Leadership – One Leader at a Time.”

“Culture isn’t just a facet of an organization – it is the organization,” said Stephen Maier, President of Management Concepts. “Take a look around – listen to the conversations in the hallways, take note of water cooler conversations, look at how decisions are made, note people’s expressions, and pay attention to what people are talking about before meetings start – this is your culture. But even with the best of intentions, wanting your culture to be a certain way won’t necessarily make it so. It takes an integrated process and effort to align your organizational culture to the desired state.”
