Leveraging your cultural chemistry

Defining your organisational culture isn’t easy. Your culture is the DNA of your organisation – the more you understand it, the better you can leverage and influence it. And that means a smoother and more effective path to your strategic goals.

Based on academic frameworks, our approach explores the symbols and elements of your current culture to create a big picture of your strengths, weaknesses and drivers. Whether you’re on the cusp of change, are going through, or coming out of a transformation, by understanding what makes you strong, you can protect it, and mitigate any risks.

How we do it.

We’ll explore your culture from two perspectives

Cultural elements – how it feels to work in your organisation. The characteristics and behaviours your people want vs those they feel around them.

Cultural symbols
– the things that make your organisation what it is. What people see, think and do.

We’ll gather the insight with our holistic, 360-degree approach

  1. A core team workshop. Together with your key stakeholders, we’ll align on the approach, get clear on the dimensions we’ll explore and the potential this creates for your organisation.
  2. A 20-minute online survey. We’ll survey a sample of your people to explore the difference between what they want and what they get from your culture.
  3. 60-minute workshops. In a series of hands-on and high energy workshops with your people, we’ll explore the symbols of your culture and get into the depths of what makes your culture what it is.
  4. Ethnographic observation. We’ll conduct on-site or digital ethnography to identify key gaps in your culture including say-do, process-practice, thought-action and knowledge-action gaps. These observations help uncover the open secrets of your culture and what you don’t know you don’t know.

We’ll share the findings with your stakeholders

Following a detailed analysis of your cultural type – the elements and symbols that make your culture – we’ll present the findings in a working session with you and your stakeholders.

Starting with the big picture and working audience by audience, we’ll articulate the story of your culture and explore what makes you strong.

From there, we can bring our project delivery and change management expertise into the mix and work with you to make the recommendations a reality. Together, we’ll identify, and plan to implement, the interventions that will enable you to leverage and strengthen your culture and drive business performance.
