One of the unsung heroes of corporate assets is its culture. Derived from leadership and trickled down to every individual who comes aboard to share your vision for the future, who you are and how you do what you do is an incredible asset. If things aren’t going the way they should be — or maybe you feel they could be better — it may be time to assess your cultural competence.
Reading those words, it might sound incredibly soft and not at all important, but I’d urge you to think otherwise. Lack of definitive culture or the inability to find the right talent that aligns with your vision are the result of high turnover, employee disengagement, loss of productivity, and sometimes the very extinction of a corporation. If your leadership brand doesn’t resonate with every manager and your organizational culture doesn’t resonate with every employee, your overall plan will have a hard won path to the finish line of your annual plan, if it reaches the destination at all.
Proper cultural assessment is worth the investment. It gives you to tools to ensure your culture is what you want it to be and that the right individuals are there to see it through to fruition. With proper tools and guidance, your corporate culture can become a winning formula to retain your top talent, attract the right individuals to achieve future success, and become a set of guiding principles that will lead you straight to profitability and longevity.
How it works
Cultural assessment starts with a diagnosis of the disconnect: where your perception of the company is not met with the results you desire. After analysis, results are produced along with a plan of action as to how to alter the situation for the better. From leadership assessment through an organizational culture audit, we’ll discover what’s working and what changes will result in increased corporate connection.
Cultural diversity also plays a large role in a successful corporate culture. Gaps and sensitivities around these global issues may also arise during the cultural assessment, which will be met with an action plan to correct any issues around diversity and inclusion. A strong, diverse culture aligned with your goals is a winning formula for success.
