Culture & Values
“Culture eats strategy for breakfast”.
We’ll make sure you have a clear, well-aligned definition of your cultural values and how to strengthen your culture over time.
We can all agree that organizational culture is important but it still often seems fuzzy, vague and difficult to grasp.
At its root, culture is the set of human behaviors within an organization and the underlying values that keep those behaviors in place. It’s shaped and reinforced by every member of the team.
Our workshops are designed to steward teams through a process that delivers real cultural insight about your organization. The result will be a careful articulation of the culture you want and the responsibilities of team members in helping it to flourish.
Culture & Values Workshop
Identify cultures and behaviors you find appealing and appalling and discuss the reasons.
Explore your personal and professional values and those of your colleagues.
Examine your current team values and principles (both explicit and implicit).
Collaboratively draft a set of values and behaviors.
Play with the draft values and behaviors by putting them to the test.
For team values - leave the workshop with the first iteration of your aligned set of values
For organizational values - leave the workshop with a strategy for co-designing and getting feedback from the broader organization
Make a plan for communication and adoption of culture values
We can also facilitate multiple sessions to incorporate perspectives from different cross-sections of people from around the organization.
In addition to offering dedicated workshops for teams, we hold regular sessions that are open to individuals. If you'd be interested in one of those sessions, let us know...
I think that the offsite allowed the team to come closer together. It was helpful to have some "walls" come down and see each other as well-meaning human beings.
Andre and Rachel were great facilitators who kept energies going high (even when we were emotionally and mentally tired) I appreciated their agnostic view points as an outsider to this company and team. I valued their experience and great communication skills which they freely gave and exemplified.
