A Foundation for Cultural Transformation

Download agenda

The Positive Culture Framework is an approach based on our latest research about improving health and safety in our communities and organizations. It seeks to cultivate health and safety. We intentionally use the word “cultivate” because the framework builds on shared values, beliefs, and attitudes that already exist in a culture to promote health and safety. The Positive Culture Framework builds on the recognition that the solutions are in the community. For more information about our framework, visit here.
2018 Training
Our 2.5-day Positive Culture Framework Training will provide a foundation for efforts to improve health and safety that address a wide variety of issues including (but not limited to) substance abuse, traffic safety, and violence prevention. The Training will cover our cultural transformation process and initiate the development of skills in three critical areas: leadership, communication, and the integration of effective strategies. Participants will leave with an understanding of how culture influences behavior, how we can cultivate cultural transformation, and specific next steps for implementing this process for transforming culture to achieve community health and safety goals.
