Corporate Culture Connection Workshops
Companies have existed, and in many cases flourished, without fully understanding the impact of their corporate culture for many years. In fact, the phrase “corporate culture” rarely showed up prior to 1980. Companies have been playing poker; bluffing their competitors, trading for new cards, raising the stakes and searching for the royal flush that will make them the tournament winner.
Yet, without even knowing or understanding corporate culture, every leader has had a corporate culture within their organization. So how does corporate culture play with strategy?
A portfolio of the top twenty publicly listed best companies to work for in the USA in 2008 would have returned an average annualized return of 16.74% over the last ten years – compared to 2.83% for the S&P 500; proving that the competitive environment is shifting.
It’s not enough anymore to just create the strategy. It’s not enough to build out the tactics to implement the corresponding initiatives. It’s not even enough to institutionalize good change management practices. All of it is for not, if you don’t align the core foundation of your company, the corporate culture. It’s time to embrace corporate culture capital as the next leading competitive advantage for boosting a company’s performance.
What is the Corporate Culture Connection workshop?
Designed to help leaders fuel their bottom line results through building an effective and engaging corporate culture; the Corporate Culture Connection Workshop is a 3-hour program that arms leadership teams with practical and easy to apply concepts and tools. This workshop starts with a focus on the building blocks of culture, moves into the Barrett culture model, and finishes with case studies to provide hands on application of the tools. Along the way, interactive exercises are used to further learning and networking experiences.
Participants will leave the program with:
- An understanding of how culture impacts bottom line results
- A model for measuring culture including limiting values and cultural entropy
- Ability to interpret the degree of change or transformation required to move from current state to desired state
- How to incorporate a cultural transformation into the overall corporate strategy, including mergers and acquisitions
