A Transformational Culture is an organizational culture which is fair, just, inclusive, sustainable and high performing. When organizations adopt a transformational culture they are putting their purpose, their values, and their people first.


In his latest ground-breaking book, TRANSFORMATIONAL CULTURE: DEVELOP A PEOPLE CENTRED ORGANIZATION FOR IMPROVED PERFORMANCE, David Liddle calls for organizations to adopt a radical new approach to company culture, built on the foundations of fairness, justice, inclusivity, sustainability and high performance.

At a time when organizations are straining every sinew to build back better following some of the most turbulent times in the last 20 years, David Liddle argues that it is not possible to emerge with the old cultural paradigms still in play. Power, profit and process are no longer symbols of a successful organization.

The rewards for such organizations will be great – enhanced competitive advantage, attracting investment, enhanced brand values and the ability to attract and retain top talent.” – David Liddle

“The next time I encounter yet another excuse for not addressing racism, injustice or fairness by an employer, I will whip out David Liddle’s Transformational Culture. I DARE every leader, manager, lawyer and HR person to read this book. He transforms outdated, rigid and harmful disciplinary processes based on retributive justice towards what this weary world needs: restorative justice: focused on learning and collective organizational safety.”

Pam Williams, HR Director & Leadership Coach  

“David has produced another gem of a book which should be compulsory reading for all leaders, managers and HR professionals alike. David makes a compelling case of the power of transforming cultures to be kinder, more compassionate and to achieve a win/win approach for everyone. It is a book I will return to time and again.”
