Building an awesome company culture is formulaic and predictable. Great company culture is built on a foundation of trust and clarity. As a leader you are tasked with creating a clear vision for the organization and then building a team that can get you there. In our Cultural Foundations program, we will not only walk you through setting your Vision (Purpose, Values, Mission) but we will also help you outline the plan to accomplish that Vision. Until these pieces are in place it is hard to know how to hire, who to fire and how to best organize the work. Companies who are missing these elements are like pilots trying to fly w/o their instruments. However, once in place their entire organization feels a greater sense of confidence and clarity. We accomplish that goal through a three part process featured by a two-day onsite workshop with team leadership.
1. Team Preparation
Before the meeting it is important that we help the team get prepared for our work. During the preparation phase we will invite meeting participants to get oriented to the work by watching one or two online training videos and preparing for meeting discussions with guided questions.
2. Two-Day Onsite
After working with hundreds of companies to establish the foundation for a great culture. Here are the key elements we will work through with your team during our two-day onsite experience.
VISION WORKSHOP (3 hours)
Almost all great business leaders will attribute
their success to intentionally establishing their Vision,
which we define as Purpose, Values and Mission.
In this workshop, we will help you to establish the Vision
for your Organizations.
STRATEGIES WORKSHOP (1.5 hours)
In this section, you will discover the strength levers
you have in your business an how you can repeatedly
pull these levers to achieve your mission. You will
also identify the areas where if you invested more, you'd
see an exponential return.
DESIGN YOUR FUTURE ORG CHART (1 hour)
Here you will outline your future org chart to start
planning for your company's growth. This exercise
will help you get clarity around your future leadership
team, future hires and where the bottlenecks are in your
BIG 3 (1 hours)
Part of a great culture is providing clarity to your
employees around their most important work. We
will discuss how to hold employees accountable
through measuring performance and a tool we
use called Big 3.
STRATEGIC ISSUES (1 hours)
This session is where everything comes together
and annual priorities begin to emerge. We are
able to take the new understanding developed
in the Strategic Planning Process and crystalize
it into a plan.
HIRE, LEAD AND FIRE TO THE VISION (1 hours)
This session is for leaders. Now that we have a clear
Vision, we will discuss the importance of having the
right people contributing to your business and how
you can hire, lead and fire to that Vision.
STRATEGIC PLANNING (2.5 hours)
A pivotal component of any company's success is
the ability to strategically identify the direction of
the business. In this workshop, we will lead you
through our unique process that will give the needed
context to identify the most important work.
ANNUAL/QUARTERLY PLANNING (2.5 hours)
We will finally land on a clear quarterly plan that
we are all aligned around and that is designed to
help us accomplish our Mission. We will assign
owners and make a plan for ongoing accountability.
3. Post Event Coaching and Follow-Up
After the initial session we will schedule, weekly meetings with key leaders over the 30 days. During these calls we will answer any questions that you might have and help solve problems that might arise during the first phase of implementation. At which point, we may decide to continue with a coaching relationship if we both feel it is necessary.
