While a high functioning organizational culture is a well-established enabler of business success, many organizations avoid confronting elements of their culture that are barriers to realizing their strategy. We partner with organizations to diagnose their current culture, envision their desired culture and design high-impact interventions that drive culture change.
The collectively held norms and assumptions that make up organizational culture drive much of our behavior at work. What needs to shift in your culture to create a high functioning environment that supports your strategic goals?
We partner with you at any and all stages of your journey to:
Understand the health, style and drivers of your current culture
Envision your ideal culture
Uncover the gaps to reach your ideal culture
Design & implement culture change interventions
Evaluate & extend the impact of your culture change program
EMPOWERING & AGILE
We know that effective culture change is dynamic, with a strong emotional component and must be participative yet signaled from the top by leaders. Our methodology reflects this: we immerse ourselves in our clients’ contexts, partner to support inclusive, organization-led change and equip leaders to meaningfully engage with reactions to change. We bring our behavioral science expertise to ground our work in what we know will deliver meaningful, lasting behavior change.
RIGOROUS, RELEVANT & LEADERSHIP EXPERTS
We draw on our 30 years’ experience of working with leaders and organizations, while at the same time deeply understanding our clients’ unique context through qualitative and quantitative methods. No two culture change programs will ever be the same. We understand your organization and apply our experience of leaders and behavior change to design the right intervention for your context.
Individual leaders transmit culture. Leaders act as role models, tell stories and reinforce rituals. We help leaders develop as ideal culture carriers, equipping them with the tools and know-how to consistently and proactively signal the required culture.
Culture change must be signaled from the top, and this starts with the executive team. We partner with top teams to scope, shape and deliver culture change programs. We also develop the team to lead in a way which both signals and reinforces the required cultural shifts.
Culture change is delivered through both cross-organization interventions and localised interventions. We support clients to understand what drives their overarching culture and subcultures, not just how they manifest. As a result, our clients know how and where to focus their efforts to achieve the required culture shifts.
