ABOUT THE POSITIVE CULTURE FRAMEWORKClose up of plant sprouting from ground with green background

The Positive Culture Framework is an approach based on our research about improving health and safety in communities and organizations. The framework builds on shared values and beliefs that already exist in a culture to improve health and safety. It addresses key skills (the how), steps in a process (the what), and the context for doing the work (the where). Learn more about our framework here.
  
 

2019 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 complex social issues. Training attendees will: 
  • Learn how culture influences behavior 
  • Develop and refine skills in three critical areas: leadership, communication, and the integration of effective strategies
  • Gain specific next steps for transforming culture to improve health and safety 

The Positive Culture Framework Training is an excellent opportunity to engage with others across the country and move towards cultivating a culture that supports and sustains health and safety.
