Do you know what others appreciate about you? Do you know what advice your boss, peers and subordinates can offer you to improve your leadership style? Do you know how you are contributing to the successes or problems within the organisation? Do you know your level of personal entropy?

Conduct Values Assessment
Together we wil setup your Cultural Values Asssessment. Usually this takes between 3 - 5 weeks before you have a report. During the preparation we will define and adjust the values list to be used, the demographic cuts you would like to see, and languages to be used. The assessment is done online via a website and takes approximately 15 minutes to answer. Within a week after the survey has closed you will get the report from us.
Share Results and Start Dialogue
The values assessment results are just a start point for a conversation. Now you need to invest circle time to sit and open a real dialogue. Listen to ideas that all your employees have to improve the way you work together. Help them to solve their own problems and frustrations. Your cultural transformation starts right here, at this moment in this conversation. The way to listen and involve and build in trust into this conversation will lay the foundation to your desired culture.
Priotize Key Values or Choose Core Values
If your organization or team does not have a set of core values, this could be good input to choose and define your core values that you want to become the foundation of your culture. If your core values are already defined then you have an opportunity to see if they are really being lived. It may be time to focus on some new values and behaviors to take your teamwork and performance to the next level, and/or to better align your culture with your strategy. The following steps will then be based on exploring, developing and living those values.
Create a Culture Development Plan
Together with the leadership team we will co-create this plan. In this plan the path and the action that's necessary to reach the desired culture. The development plan will be the blueprint for the desired culture.
Live the values and grow the desired culture
The values must be woven into the day to day decision making and behaviours. It is critical that leaders walk- the-talk and set an example for everyone else. This will show people that you are serious and create new levels of trust. Feedback is key! It reflects what you have your attention on and how you look at what is important to you. If team members are not living the values you must have the courage to challenge them and help bring them and their behaviors into the desired culture. As much as you constantly need to provide positive feedback, catching people doing things right! Don’t forget to celebrate along the way! It is recommended that you plan for a follow up within 6 to 18 months.
