Creating Intentional Cultures
The purpose of a company wide initiative such as this is to identify the traits of a successful culture in your industry that is strategically positioned for the future, and then to design and implement a strategy for building and sustaining that intentional culture. We will begin by focusing our research on your industry in order to lead the management team through an exercise to understand the trends of the industry as it relates to culture and the professional development of the workforce. We will then assess your current culture and the issues you face.
The assessments will cover the following areas:
- Organizational Culture
- Management and Leadership Effectiveness
- HR policies and procedures
- Individual Effectiveness
- Team Effectiveness
This will provide a means to benchmark key indicators including employee morale, retention, productivity and others most vital to your business. This will position us to agree upon the characteristics of the desired intentional culture and build an implementation plan. We will guide the senior management team through a transition management process so that they may lead and manage the transition to a new intentional culture.
Building High Performance Teams
Clarify the roles, responsibilities and position of teams within the organization, from the Executive Team to functional/department teams to cross-functional/project teams and dramatically improve their performance. Cultivate a foundation of the common values of trust, respect, acceptance, and personal accountability. Develop the skills of clear effective communication, fact based team problem solving, and complex team decision making. Create a forum for honest communication, systemic perspectives and break through thinking.
Transforming HR into HRD
We will assign our HRD expert to consult with, and train as necessary, your HR department for the purposes of reviewing and evaluating Human Resource activities and suggesting improvements. Efforts will focus on organizational alignment, performance management and team member development.
Consulting topics include:
- Internally marketing the intentional culture initiative
- Review of existing HR policies
- Creation/update of the employee manual
- Creation of an employee development process
- Aligning HR policies with initiative goals, principles and values
- Creating new HR processes for reinforcement of new skills and paradigms
Upon completion of this set of consulting activities, your organization will have aligned its employee policies and processes with the demands of its new culture and completed the initial stages of an Employee Development process. The projected result of these activities should create a stronger bond between corporate goals and employee actions, which should increase the effectiveness of all employees.
Values in Action
Bringing your company values to life. We will design new employee orientation programs, train-the-trainer programs, specialized curriculum, human resource campaigns and company-wide events that help employees understand how to live your company values in daily behavior. When values are expressed in action, policy, projects and results they become more than words; they become the foundation of your company's heart and soul.
