Culture and Values
If people engage with culture and values then the organisation really gains momentum; if there is a disconnect between what is said and what is done, people can become cynical and disaffected. The challenge is to make culture and values clearly understood and applied, so people know what their organisation stands for and what is expected of them.
The Cost of Unclear Values
Change, mergers and reorganisations all create the potential for a clash of cultures, values and a lack of clarity. Your brand is damaged; employees and clients no longer have a consistent experience. People don’t work together effectively, don’t see clear role models of the behaviours required, and don’t engage with the organisation’s mission, vision, and goals. This drains energy and motivation, which results in the organisation stagnating.
Benefits and Outcomes
We define the minimum amount of change necessary to achieve the maximum impact. We develop and communicate the target behaviours that represent your culture and values to create a compelling message, which flows consistently from the top to the bottom of your organisation. Teamwork improves; customers, partners, and suppliers see a positive shift in their experience. As a result you will harness everyone’s individual contribution to get the most out of your business and create a consistent brand identity.
What We Offer
Learning Partners has developed a unique Emotional Logic Tool-kit, which combines neuroscience based understanding of how values drive behaviour with unique research that enables us to identify the core values of your people.
We use this practical and scientific methodology and our expertise in fact-finding workshops to define and describe your organisation’s values in a way that ‘sticks’ for your people and clarifies the behaviours that you want to see. We help you to create a ‘tipping point’ that moves you towards your desired culture. We signpost your strengths, and uncover the myths that block change.
