"Culture eats strategy for breakfast."

Peter Drucker

An organization's most significant and compelling indicator of long-term success is its culture. 

Whether your organization's culture is healthy or unhealthy, strong or weak, it's palpable. 

Customers feel it, competitors sense it, and employees feed off it. 

Healthly culture creates successful organizations. Employees are evangelical about and engaged with the work they do and the organization they work for. Customers know what the organization stands for, how they're going to be treated, and what they can expect. Competitors are stumped by a strong, healthy culture because, unlike products, pricing, and other well-known strategies, they can't replicate or reproduce it. 

A strong, healthy culture translates directly into top and bottom-line results. 

But despite well-documented proof that culture is vital for sustainable success, many leaders still leave culture to chance. 

And that can be catastrophic.

Whether you pay attention to it or not, culture develops. Whilst nature will always play a role in culture development, intentional management will steer it in the most productive and beneficial direction. 

So how, exactly, can culture drive sustainable performance?

By consciously developing these three cornerstones of success:

- Engaged workforce

- Evangelical workforce

- Exceptional behaviour and work

The preferred time to establish your organizations' culture is, clearly, at the outset: But few have that luxury. The majority of senior leaders and executives enter organizations with established cultures. So is it ever too late to work on your organization's culture? Simply, no it isn't. It's always the right time. 

The effects of intentional culture management are immediately visible and palpable. And dramatic. 

I work with organizations to establish and manage a culture that creates competitive advantage, evangelical employees, and ultimately supports sustainable top and bottom-line performance. 

Here's how we help organizations develop and maintain a strong, healthy culture: 

Culture Evaluation

Culture Evaluation

Despite belief to the contrary, culture can be measured. 

Using a scientific instrument validated in more than 10,000 companies over a thirty-year period, we measure your organization's culture either as a whole and/or at specific levels. 

From start to finish, we manage the process.

You receive:

  • Coordination and management of data collection. 

  • A report detailing the current and preferred culture profile. 

  • An analysis of any culture discrepancies. 

  • Breakdown of six key areas and an indication of congruence:

    • Dominant characteristics​

    • Organizational Leadership

    • Management of people

    • Organizational glue 

    • Strategic emphasis

    • Criteria of success

  • Culture Sensitivity training (where required).

Culture Sensitivity Training

The holy grail of intentional culture management is to sensitize all employees to, and repeatedly remind them of cultural norms. 

Ideally included in every annual sales/company conference, Culture Sensitivity Training should also be implemented for all new hires, and for all staff when the organization is going through merger, acquisition, or take-over, or any other event which demands a significant cultural 'shift' (often combined with 'Culture Evaluation'). 

Services offered: 

  • Culture sensitivity training for all staff​.

  • Train the trainer: We train HR professionals and/or other selected staff so that they become your organizations' cultural ambassadors. 

  • Executive-level alignment:

    • Purpose & Vision

    • Core Values

    • Guiding Principles

    • Living the cultural norms
