Does your organization need cultural change?

Are you going through a merger or acquisition? Have you had leadership change? Are you experiencing rapid growth or a drop in employee morale? Has there been a public embarrassment that shines a negative light on your culture? If any of these apply to you, then managing culture is a critical priority.

Even in the best of times, you want everyone to unite around values that will drive positive change. Above all, you want to build a culture that stimulates pride, drives success, and contributes to society.

Managing culture and driving cultural change are fundamental to running a thriving business. Now is the time to define your culture and weave those principles and values into everything you do.

Above all, take these steps to make culture your hidden asset.

1. To begin with, conduct a culture assessment to define your organization’s core principles and values.

Core Culture- the basis for cultural change

Do you know how to conduct an organizational culture assessment? In other words, do you know how to identify the principles and values that are core to your culture? Uncover the Purpose, distinctive and enduring Philosophy, and strategic Priorities. The process must be an organization-wide experience. In effect, everyone participates!

2. In addition, survey and identify the most critical drivers to increase employee engagement.

Survey employee engagement to obtain your Employee Engagement Index. And, discover the key drivers of engagement. These key drivers are your prime opportunities to increase employee engagement. Likewise, they are the universal Priorities of your Core Culture. Your workplace must be a humane workplace. To that end, it must bring out the best in each individual. Therefore, this survey highlights the Priorities to focus on internally. As a result, employees and the organization will thrive.

3. Finally, manage cultural change by aligning the Five Ps.

Align the Five Ps. To sum it up, employees must practice the principles and values that drive performance. This means align the Practices and Projections with the Purpose, Philosophy, and Priorities of the Core Culture. Everyone’s goal is to be better at living the Core Culture each and every day.
