CULTURE DESIGN SESSION
The session focuses on capturing, visualising and evolving the way things are done at your organisation. We use the Culture Design Blueprint to bring everything together and create a strong foundation for company culture becoming your ultimate competitive advantage and your teams doing their best work.
What ways can it be used?
Although deceptively simple, the Blueprint packs a lot of oomph! It has been created with flexibility in mind to allow a broad range of applications. Here are the core ways it can be used:
visualise the current culture on one page, identify gaps and areas for improvement
an ideation tool if your organisation does not have a well-defined culture
taking your current culture to the next level by exploring what does and doesn’t work
Capturing your existing culture
Designing your desired culture
Evolving your culture
get the right fit candidates and bridge the gap between ’old’ and ’new’ staff
familiarise new employees with the organisation’s culture
identify clashes and bring cultures together following a merger
Mergers and acquisitions
What does a session look like?
It is essentially a 5-hour facilitated virtual workshop. First we go over what company culture means, why it's important and what good looks like. Then we deep dive into each element of the Blueprint:
Purpose - why is the team doing what it's doing
Values - list of fundamental beliefs guiding the team
Priorities - establishing key priorities of what the team wants to achieve
Psychological safety - agreeing how team members feel safe to take risks and speak their minds
Feedback - agreeing on how to give feedback and keeping open dialogue
People and roles - defining key roles and responsibilities in the team and how they need to evolve
Meetings - defining what a productive meeting looks like
Tools - identifying tools needed for the team to be able to their job
Rules and activities - list of expected behaviours and rituals to be introduced or cultivated
What is the exact outcome?
I would love to tell you that after the session the job will be done and you will have an amazing company culture. In reality, it's only the beginning but now you have a great foundation to build on. You will leave the workshop knowing what to do next and armed with a list of actionable deliverables to implement and test.
What happens after a session?
Now that you have everything on one page (literally) you get to implement the actions and key priorities we have established during the session. You can either do that on your own or we can continue working on it together as part of as part of the Culture Design Programme.
