What is Culture?

Culture is your collective story. The story informs how people behave, how hard they work and how much of themselves they contribute.

  • Culture is real yet unseen
  • Culture is measurable and assessable
  • Culture is the collective, shared beliefs of an organization.
  • If you don’t manage culture, it will manage you
  • Culture doesn’t eat strategy, it supports it or slows it

Culture Accelerates Strategy

Culture impacts the way people behave and consequently drives performance. To accelerate performance you must address the beliefs that drive the behavior.

Attract and Retain Talent

Culture creates a workplace environment that impacts how you attract, coordinate, and retain top talent.  Your competitive talent advantage can only be achieved by intentionally developing and maintaining a culture that has a magnetic attraction to the right talent.

Speed to Market

Resistance impacts speed and increases costs within organizations. In order to reduce resistance to change it is imperative that all change initiatives begin with understanding and addressing culture. Strong cultures successfully adapt and respond to change which fast tracks their speed to market.

Organizational cultures are created in part by leaders, and one of the most decisive functions of leadership is the creation, the management and sometimes even the destruction of culture.”
~ Edgar Schein
