A healthy, results-oriented organizational culture starts with intentionality.

Many organizations become successful largely due to the drive, the intellectual horsepower, the talent and the skill of their associates.

As any firm grows, there can be unspoken assumptions made about the culture and “how work gets done.” Strategy designed for growth and impact can sometimes unintentionally occur inside of these assumptions, and what is “known.” Accordingly, even perfectly developed plans for growth but and target a “probable” future. What can sometimes go missing is the question around “what is possible.” Leaders and teams can move so quickly in executing their day-to-day responsibilities that they have little time to consider where they are headed, what they share in common, and what meaningful impact means to the collective.

This is where a shared purpose, a shared vision and a shared commitment come into play.

An intentional approach to culture, leadership and the future slows down “working in the business” to consider “working on the business,” and of even more significance, what is important to the people who serve the organization and its clients.

An intentional approach includes beginning an inquiry that gets to the core of what each individual values, what success looks like, and what impact can be created with an aligned, purposeful and focused leaders.

Delivery of culture shaping while following certain guidelines and practices, is a process that is custom-designed based on your current organizational context and the results you are seeking to create for the organization.

A discovery process includes conversations with executive leadership, assessment of intact team dynamics, identification and assessment of culture attributes by key stakeholders.

Based on the assertion that so go the leaders, so goes the culture, work generally begins “at the top” of the organization. Coaching and team development will occur at the executive level, including an assessment or an installation of organizational ideology such as purpose, values, mission and operating agreements.
