Javier Bajer

Cultural Architect and Founding CEO of The Talent Foundation

Javier Bajer is best defined as a Cultural Architect. He has spent the last 20 years helping organisations and cities change old habits, allowing their strategies to work. He has helped create well-known cultures for brands like Google, Accenture, HSBC, Hewlett-Packard and even The Royal Household. Javier was part of the original team that advised Google in the creation of their culture, almost 20 years ago.

But Javier's story is not just about the cultures of companies, but that of cities. Javier is today the Cultural Architect for the City of Buenos Aires, working with the Major and his Ministers in the implementation of changes that range from the behaviours of a new Police Force to those of 6 million citizens, reducing the generation of rubbish, easing the traffic and building a sense of support and contribution across society. Javier’s team also advises the Cities of New York and Beirut.

With both theoretical and practical understanding of what makes people engage and behave in certain ways, Javier’s teams create award-winning interventions that produce change in record times.

Topics

Profit on Purpose: Meaning That Makes Money

Finding a sense of purpose at work is essential for people— and for profit. Most of us work for more than 50% of our waking hours for over 50 years of our lives. Instead
of trading purpose for earnings, I’ll show you how profit is not a purpose, but a direct metric of your impact.

Lead Between the Lines: A Leadership Attitude for Everyone

Leadership is not some theoretical knowledge that develops through tips and quotes. It’s about wanting to make changes that add value—and having the courage to do so. In this engaging two-hour experience, you’ll be empowered to be less of a victim and more of a leadership in every aspect of your life.

Beyond Sticks and Carrots: Engaging Today's Workforce

Few things are worse than a disengaged workforce. Motivating human beings doesn’t require bribery or flattery. Using analogies from the world of sport, I’ll show you how to create a high challenge, low threat environment that brings out your employees’ very best.

Change Culture, Fast: Turning Good Intentions Into Great Behaviours

Culture is the personality of an organisation. It is what engages people (employees, partners, investors, clients) to make things happen. It drives everyday decisions, inspiring high performance, customer value, and the sustainability of a business. Culture is not what the posters say it is. It is what people talk about when we are not watching. Javier helps senior executives create the culture to drive their strategy.

Change Fatigue

Change Fatigue can kill your strategy. Most organisations have overdone their change initiatives in recent years, causing widespread disbelief in their workforces and a reluctance to give it a go. Expensive announcements of the next big thing showing a shiny set of values and behaviours is unlikely to change people’s everyday behaviours soon enough to make a difference. People’s attitude to change can be restored in about three months. Javier shares how.

Javier’s approach to leadership development has had a significant effect on the way my team behaves and deals with work challenges.

Accenture

As a result of Javier’s input, our business turn-around has been much healthier and faster than would have otherwise been the case.

Hewlett-Packard Consulting

The highlight of the conference.

Skillsoft

It was a pleasure working with Javier.
