“As a result of the process, we have spent quality time with each other getting to know our individual styles, strengths, and values. This has avoided silo’s thinking and we now have a much stronger collective engagement as well as stronger and more strategic decision making. I adopted the co-created story with my own management teams to accelerate culture change towards greater effectiveness and innovation, leading to a more positive working environment for over 4000 employees working across teams in the council.”
