Top talent won’t tolerate average cultures. Design yours right.
You either intentionally design your culture to make your people successful, or it happens accidentally. Accidental cultures are average.
In 6 months you can design a culture that unlocks your team’s performance.
Step 1: See your culture patterns.
We start with our own culture assessment (the WorkXO Assessment), drawn from decades of research and experience. Instead of telling you if your culture is “good” or “bad” in the abstract, it tells you how your culture really works, identifying the underlying patterns that either support or interfere with your success as an organization.
Step 2: Prioritize your culture change.
Once you see your patterns, we’ll help you create an internal Culture Team who will dig into the data and identify a short list of priorities for your culture work that will have the biggest impact on your success. These are not core values—they are behavior-based priorities, tied specifically to key issues in both your culture and your operating environment that will make the most difference, right now.
Step 3: Start running culture plays.
The most important deliverable will be your Culture Playbook—a prioritized set of targeted activities and internal changes that will make a more effective culture both real and permanent. You’ll develop an extensive list of possible activities—from low-hanging fruit, to meaningful improvements, to larger, often HR-focused, infrastructural interventions. You’ll pick the best ones to pitch to management for approval and immediate implementation. In other words, you’ll be fixing your culture, and unlocking performance. The process takes no more than six months, and usually runs you about $50,000.
