Compliance cultures earn minimal effort, whereas office alphas run chaotic cultures in fiefdoms. Contingent cultures work fine until you have to scale or bring in new people.
An Inspiring Culture delivers lasting success because people do what's right, the right way, without you having to watch over them. You can focus on strategy and growth.
Organizations with Inspiring Cultures display six habits. This mastery program takes you through the step-by-step process of building it.
In this 8-week program, you will implement the action steps that provide clarity, gain buy-in, and increase accountability so that you have a culture where people are engaged, productive, and want to stick around.
Outcomes you can expect:
- Define your organization's common good so that employees and prospects know what you stand for and you can hire people inclined to buy in.
- Build cognitive diversity so that you put your employees in position to contribute their best to your team's success.
- Clarify expectations so that you can hold people accountable for results and values without feeling like a jerk.
- Gain buy-in for your organization's common good so that people do what's right without constant supervision.
- Create a climate of psychological safety and accountability so people speak up, feel heard, and act within the values.
- Give feedback that leads to better performance and avoids feedback-sandwich awkwardness.
- Address toxic behavior to enforce your values and retain your top talent.
