How is your Culture? Rules of Belonging at Work with Fiona Robertson

This week on the Lady Leadership podcast I caught up with Fiona Robertson who is a Culture Change expert. 

We chat culture - what it is and what it isn't and how culture is often mistaken as engagement!  

Fiona talks about how culture is the system and the rules that determine what it takes to belong and to fit into a group. We discuss how often people will do almost anything to fit into a group. We also talk about how engagement can be confused with culture where as engagement is how people engage with that system. 

We also talk about unwritten rules and behaviours of groups and how these are interpreted plus how strategy and culture can work together. 

Fiona is so passionate about culture that she has written a book, called the 'Rules of Belonging'. I'm sure that you will find this chat as fascinating as I did and it will give you great insight into the world of culture. 

About me: 

My name is Samantha McIntyre and after 30 years in business and technology - from starting out on the helpdesk to getting to and staying in the C suite, being on Executive boards and being a mother and entreprenuer!  I am passionate about helping women in their careers. 

What I have enjoyed the most in my roles is helping those around me succeed - particularly women!  

I have lead technology team for some of the biggest businesses and brand in Australia and the world such as Tesco, Loreal, Coles, Woolworths and Sportsgirl.

So  if you're looking for someone who knows what it is like to be a women in business and technology plus being a mother and an entrepreneur then you've come to the right place.
