It is often said that if you are not managing your money, your money is managing you. The same is true of workplace culture. But many organizations either aren’t proactively defining what they want their culture to be, or know what they want and make the necessary changes, but 6 months later the culture is drifting back to where it started.
Axiom’s approach is to work with you to understand the culture that will empower your organization to succeed. We identify the aspects of your culture that are working and what and where the barriers are. In both realms we identify the supporting and blocking behaviours that backstop the actions – the actions that are driving results. We consider every role so every employee understands when their actions and behaviours are aligned with organizational success.
Axiom also looks at the broader picture of culture:
Is the department or organizational vision clear?
Does everyone understand the vision?
Are the resources available to bring success to life?
Are the rewards systems aligned?
Do you have the right skills and skill training?
How are meetings handled?
As cultures change, the supporting structures must change as well. If you keep your old supporting structures, they will ultimately pull your culture back to the “old ways.”
All these elements need to be in play to create the culture you want. Our proven approach to culture change will guide you every step of the way, whether you’re building or re-energizing the culture within a single department or team, or across your entire organization.
