In this episode, Stephen George talks to Cathy Barrick, CEO of Alzheimer Society, Ontario, on leading change and building culture through leadership. Cathy explores the challenges of how to build a common approach when authority has to be replaced with influence

The Culture Club started as a panel session at IFC in October 2018 and was followed up by a panel session at AFP Toronto 2018. The sessions looked at how organisations build and support amazing cultures, encouraging the personalities of individuals and the organisations to emerge and that allows people to connect and align with core values and messages. This series on the Good Leaders Podcast continues that exploration, looking at the barriers and opportunities in a great culture, how power can make or break a culture, the impacts on fundraising, how brand can help or hinder, on aspiration, the behaviours needed and how to build a place where the culture becomes the catalyst for great work and change.

Cathy talks about building great cultures with influence when authority wont work in organisations with devolved structures. She explores fundraising and performance, how brand can influence and getting the best from people. (Reality check...we interviewed when roadworks had just started outside Cathy’s office so apologies for the background noise!)

In this episode, Stephen George talks to Professor Isaac Getz, from the top-ranked ESCP Europe Business School. His book "Freedom, Inc” which he co-authored with Brian Carney, has been translated in nine languages and examines how transformational leadership can build a work environment which liberates employee initiative and responsibility for the good of their company. Within a liberated company, employees have freedom and responsibility to take any action that they—not their supervisors or procedures —decide are the best for the company’s vision. Stephen and Isaac explore the implications for non-profits and how to get started to liberate your teams.
