Is your culture holding you back?
Our culture design work is different. We look for the culture patterns — and people patterns — that are getting in the way of success. Let us help you figure this out for your workplace.
We are culture experts. We will help you use the tools and resources you already have at your disposal to design and sustain an amazing culture on an ongoing basis.
Here are several ways we can help you.
For future-focused organizations managing change (yep, that’s you!) - our most popular engagement is a 6-month project that includes a culture assessment, the development of distinct culture priorities, and the creation of a “culture playbook” of action steps for intentionally designing your culture to be aligned with what drives your success. This is the perfect project when you’re ready to get serious about culture.
Culture Pattern Analysis
You know that culture matters—but you don’t know HOW it matters until you can see your culture patterns, and how they mess with your success. For example, are you trying to be more innovative as an organization but finding it difficult to get new ideas to fruition? Or, have you set up collaborative spaces in your office only to find them underused? Our Culture Pattern Analysis project is the easiest way to get a high-level view of your core culture patterns and the impact they are having on your people and your performance. In 2 short weeks we can collect and analyze just enough data to deliver a powerful report that illuminates your core patterns and provides recommendations on how to reduce any friction they are causing.
Culture and Engagement. Articulate key culture patterns and connect them to success drivers and employee engagement.
Culture and Office Design. Connect internal culture patterns to key decisions around office design and layout.
Merger Compatibility. Compare culture patterns between two organizations, pre- or post-merger.
Our research and experience points to three critical areas in “people dynamics” that have the biggest impact, and we can help you with each one. Where our Culture Design work starts with the whole system, looking holistically from the outside in, our People Dynamics work allows you to start with one individual, team or department and build out the right culture from the inside out.
People patterns. We use the Predictive Index tool to help you align teams and individuals based on behavioral patterns, expectations, and job needs.
Senior Teams. Retreats or other facilitated sessions to identify and solve key dynamics or issues at the senior level and create better alignment with culture.
Conflict resolution. Get conflict resolution training/coaching for staff, or hire us for direct interventions.
Build out your culture operations and infrastructure to ensure your culture alignment work is sustainable over the long term. We can help you with:
Internal culture management roles
Project management of culture change efforts
Culture communications (artifacts, culture codes)
Infusing culture in Talent/HR Processes, Policies, and Strategy
Digital Transformation / Culture Advisory
Consider these three truths:
All technology change has a culture component to it.
