comfortable. When people do things instinctively and

Culture is a learned set of shared
interpretations about beliefs values
and norms which affect the behaviours
of a relatively large group of people. slide 11: The notion that behavior change leads to attitude change can
be traced back to the 1950s to psychologist Leon Festinger and
his theory of cognitive dissonance.
Festinger argued that when people are induced to act in new
ways even if those new behaviors feel unfamiliar or wrong at
first their need for consistency will gradually affect the way they
think and feel. They will seek out reasons to justify their new
actions - both rationally and emotionally.

make its workplace safer. To change the way people do
things a clean-up-event was organized. Picking up
trash helped people develop care for each other and helped
them speak up when they noticed an unsafe situation.
The change in behaviour helped change values of people.
