Course Description/Overview:
In this course, you will discover how you can transform your working environment and create a culture you can belong in. Whether you seek ideas that will change the world or you just want to reclaim a place in which you can think deeply, this course invites you to overcome what is preventing you doing the best work of your career. You will be able to discuss practical ideas and creative ways of thinking to re-motivate and inspire you, building on what works and adapting what doesn't, to create your own culture with your closest colleagues.

Learning Outcomes:
• Understand your research culture, considering how robust, ethical and action-oriented research, deep and diverse values, community and capacity enables impact
• Use diagnostic questions to identify bright spots and issues in your impact culture
• Learn from evolutionary organisations, contrasting top-down change management linked to extrinsic incentives from funders, with more bottom-up approaches that draw on your intrinsic motivations
• Design your own experiment to experiment with small, safe changes that you can evaluate and scale to do the best work of your career
