Establish Your Values & Principles

"Culture eats strategy for breakfast". We'll make sure you have a clear, well-aligned definition of the values and principles that will strengthen your culture over time.

This workshop is part of our Team Chartering program. It can also be taken stand-alone.

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 principles that matter most to you and the responsibilities of team members in making those principles a day-to-day reality.

In this workshop, you will...

  • 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 principles that reflect your best thinking around how the organization and its people should behave.
  • For team-centric workshops, you'll leave with the first iteration of your aligned set of principles.
  • For whole-company-centric workshops, you'll leave the with a strategy for using the principles you establish as the seed of a broader organizational process.
  • Either way, you'll make a plan for communicating and fostering the adoption of principles you identify.

We can also facilitate multiple sessions to incorporate perspectives from different cross-sections of people from around the organization.

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.

PeopleStorming 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.

This was a great day of workshops to figure out areas of improvements and shared values of a team. The hosts were pleasant, insightful and helpful in guiding discussions. I thought the process they designed for coming up with a mission statement was really good. The most impact for me came from the future visioning exercises and the shared values work.

The chartering was great. It flagged up gaps in our team collaboration and our shared values. I thought the meetings and artifacts inventory process was insightful and I loved the open discussion structures you deployed. I can see us using those structures beyond this offsite.

I felt a much stronger connection to my team members after attending. I think the other team members were affected the same way I was, and we will be more comfortable collaborating in the future.

I think the exercises that helped us get closer to a charter were valuable for helping us gain a shared understanding of how to work together.

I think it was a really valuable use of time for a team like ours that is distributed and still new to working together.

Great company culture isn't something you hold on to. It's something that co-evolves with its environment. #CultureIteration
