Build a team that get results.
Combining leadership advantage with cohesive mission, focus, and culture provides a competitive edge in today’s dynamic marketplace.
Culture Docs has joined with Stith Associates to create a program that delivers sustainable results by working with leadership teams to develop:
Clarity around mission, vision and values with a strategic path for achieving success,
Increased collaboration among team members,
Mutual problem-solving and mechanisms for peer support,
Structured implementation process with clear strategies for goal achievement
Organizational leaders often focus on operations as a way to improve productivity and output—or more succinctly, “what” they need to accomplish. When approached with different options for better engaging the workforce or the rest of the leadership team in helping drive to better results, they opt for “efficiencies” as a way to achieve success. Time is spent developing strategic plans to further lay out a way to increase output and results, however, often the plans are overcome by events before the ink is dry on the paper. “How” to get to the desired end state, and furnishing an effective way to engage employees in achieving success, is often overlooked because of the focus on the “what.”
Culture Docs and Stith Associates approach improves output & results with a two-step process.
- First, we work with the leadership team to ensure that all are on board and working together as a real team. Through sustained practice, with results accountable to management and each other, leadership teams are finely tuned to address any challenge.
- Second, we work with the leadership team to identify and articulate the mission and values necessary to bring the employees along on the journey. There is a quote often attributed to management guru Peter Drucker, that “Culture eats strategy for breakfast, lunch and dinner.” In other words, strategies (the “what”) come and go. Organizational culture and employee attitudes (the “how”) stay the same unless there is deliberate, sustained work to develop and drive significant behavioral change.
