Team Culture Services

Team Culture Consulting

Benefits of a well managed culture:

  • Conflicts are handled swiftly and skillfully.
  • Ideas flow more smoothly.
  • Employees enjoy - and brag about - working in such environments.
  • Turnover is reduced.
  • Inter-team cooperation is enhanced.
  • High profile probelms are prevented.


Why assess your team culture?

  1. Sometimes you need hard numbers to validate a feeling you have that something is not quite right with a team, department, or company culture;
  2. A company that cannot demonstrate a culture that focuses on caring for and developing people isn't competing for top talent;
  3. A poor culture will result in a poor work life experience for a company's people, which in turn will result in higher turnover - and the cost of re-training people in key positions, and the brain drain that comes because the new person doesn't know quite as much as the one who left;
  4. It is hard to have a finger on the pulse of every pocket and team in the organization;
  5. Today, more than ever, employees have a choice. And given a choice between a wonderful place to work and a less-than-optimal place to work, how will most people choose?
  6. Companies are being held legally responsible for the workplace environments they maintain, making it an essential component of running any business.

Organizational Culture Assessment


Our organizational assessment is designed to be used for any of several reasons:

  1. Before any training is commenced. Using this tool will allow the trainers to better understand the needs and concerns of the group that is being trained. This will allow the trainer to customize the presentations and tailor the skills that are most needed.

  2. Training is an incredible tool beside the learning that takes place when used in the correct manner.
    • Training can and should be used to reinforce the organziation's culture.
    • Conversely, an organization's culture can and should be used to reinforce training.
    • What do we mean? For example, you train someone on a simple task. Later they have a question about the task but your 'culture' labels someone as 'dumb' if they ask dumb questions, do you think they will ask the question? Obviously, the training that took place is not reinforced. Hence, the training money that was spend was wasted. If the problem continues, the person trained will walk out the door and all the money spent training walks out with them.

  3. Address problematic areas that could lead to expensive litigation. These are some of the areas addressed:
    • Harassment of all kinds.
    • Discrimination of all kinds.

  4. Focus any efforts on changing or improving your organization's culture. This assessment is a great place to start if you want to make changes to your culture, but are not sure where to start. It will show you exactly where the most necessary improvements are needed.

The tool is usable for teams, department, or entire companies. The high level information it supplies about your operating culture can be invaluable in determining / justifying strategy. And it takes only 4-6 minutes per person to complete!

The Assessment is designed to help your development efforts BEFORE spending money on consulting or workshops.
