According to Deloitte, “94% of executives and 88% of employees believe a distinct workplace culture is important to business success.” Forbes reported that “Companies with strong cultures have seen a 4x increase in revenue growth.” Research also showed that organizations that have unique cultures thrive even in bad times.
Unfortunately, many organizations aren’t intentional and proactive to create and nurture a unique corporate culture that reflects their mission and aligns with their brand. Even if they have a well-articulated mission and vision statements, well-crafted strategies, and shared values, they are unable to align their people along with these key aspects of the organization. These organizations failed to understand what the father of modern management- Peter Drucker, said: “Culture eats strategy for lunch!” What is more? Though many organizations are committed to invest in the latest technologies and hire highly competent people, they aren’t getting the return on investment. Rather, they are struggling to fulfill their mandate, let alone to remain competitive and thrive as they desire.
On the other hand, those organizations that create and leverage a unique corporate culture enjoy a competitive edge. Since they continually nurture their unique corporate culture, they thrive even during tough times. If you would like to join these elite organizations that enjoy constant improvements in their productivity, high engagement from their people with less turnover, fewer conflicts, and high productivity, you should create and nurture a unique and robust culture to remain competitive.
The main goal of this program is to emphasize the importance of creating and nurturing a unique culture and to empower leaders at various levels of the organization to understand the power of culture and play their respective roles to contribute toward the creation and maintenance of the corporate culture. Below are the specific objectives of the program:
To understand the power of a unique culture and the benefits of having such a vibrant culture,
To recognize the consequences of a dysfunctional corporate culture,
To identify the different types of corporate cultures and which one is relevant for their industry,
To know how to create a unique corporate culture that constantly delivers a competitive edge,
To learn how to nurture and maintain a robust culture by putting in place some ground rules, and providing incentives to encourage alignment,
To align your people (products and services) alongside the shared corporate values to overcome misalignment, and
To leverage the unique and robust culture to unite and engage your people and other stakeholders.
Format: 30 – 90 minutes keynotes (in person or virtually)
