Culture is Strategy: the way high-performing businesses will be managed in the future
People are seeking more meaning in their work. The trend is unmistakable. As a leader, you have a choice. Do you want to have an enlightened company, the kind of business that elevates people, connects them to deeper meaning, and a better life? Or, do you just want to be among the ranks who manage the other 69%….the disengaged, unhappy and unproductive? According to Gallup, 69% of U.S. workers are actively disengaged. That number is even higher, 83%, in Europe.
While people cannot be forced to believe in what they do, it is possible to create a dynamic environment that sets a system of beliefs and norms; one that drives inspired engagement toward the business’s most urgent priorities. Culture Design™ is the system that fosters an environment that is all at once, welcoming, immersive, clear, and elevating, while aligning people to drive towards superior, consistent results.
Culture Science™ looks at employees like customers and analyzes their relationship to four essential areas of work. It enables the design of a deep and immersive connection to the vision, purpose and the ‘how’ work needs to be done. Culture Science is a robust system for designing and executing culture. It combines social, behavioral and management sciences, wrapped up in strategic communication, to make change irresistible. The process delivers a real, human, and emotional connection to work.
Whether you have one hundred or one hundred thousand employees, Culture Science™ is designed to be scalable, across geography and national identities.
Assessments Powered by Culture Science™
We do not understand our people very well. The standard ways of collecting employee sentiment are unreliable. We developed a method of collecting narrative data for your entire organization. Our assessment allows you to uncover the experiences and stories that your employees are sharing about their work. This is at scale and with the richness of qualitative data and the structure of quantitative data to understand and inform a relevant, motivating and unifying Culture Design strategy.
The key to understanding the mindset and employee experience is found in the stories people are telling about their work. While quantitative data is useful, stories reveal the soul of the organization. Our Culture Science Assessments capture narrative data at scale and then apply quantitative analysis, yielding complete, detailed, and vibrant insights that will transform your understanding of your organization.
The outcomes are clear insights and actions to be taken to solve problems and design the culture you are seeking to have.
