Navigating Deep and Shallow Wins in the Organisational Context

Identifying, prioritizing, and leveraging both deep and shallow wins to drive organisational success can be challenging. In this exclusive masterclass Dr Pippa Grange, applied psychologist, author, people and culture thought leader will guide participants’ understanding of the difference between deep wins, which involve fundamental shifts in behaviour or culture, and shallow wins, which are often quick wins or surface-level changes.  Learn how to identify and categorize wins within your organisation and explore the short-term and long-term implications of deep and shallow wins on organisational culture, employee morale, and business performance.  

Dr Grange will help participants understand how to strategically balance immediate victories with sustainable transformation and harness the power of shallow wins to build momentum and pave the way for larger-scale initiatives. We will also discuss strategies for fostering deep wins that create lasting change, while also identifying wins that allows us to feel successful as well as being successful on terms of delivery and outcomes.
