CULTURE flows from the C-suite,  not from HR.

In this time of crisis, we need people to take up BOTH these roles:

MANAGER – more focused on the operational needs and solutions.

LEADER – more focused on the people and the adaptive shifts required.

I’ve depicted some of the key distinctions in this diagram …

My name Siobhan is pronounced ‘Shiv-awn’ which is the Irish form of Joan.

Registered Organisational Psychologist with the British Psychological Society.

I’m a culture transformer with a vision to make workplaces better.

I’ve worked across four continents, helping thousands of leaders to create more agile and productive workplaces.

I’ve also been on the “inside” as the executive in charge of culture change in a series of large, multinational organizations.

One of these inside jobs was a radical seven-year change initiative at Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited (ANZ) that transformed it from the lowest-performing bank in the country into one of the highest-performing and most admired banks in the world. Professor John Kotter used my work with ANZ as a Harvard Business School case study designed to teach MBA students about managing change.

I’m excited to share my ‘insider’ secrets with you in my new book,

“The Insider’s Guide to Culture Change”. 

You will learn 4 steps required for successful culture change;  will help you create a workplace that can deliver, grow, and adapt.

I am currently the Executive General Manager of People, Culture & Change at DuluxGroup which is an international paints and coatings company (headquartered in Melbourne, Australia). The key focus in my role is helping to create a more innovative, consumer driven and growth oriented culture.
