The Culture You Want Grows From the Culture You Have. Let's Start There.
Our Culture Audit Gives You A Common Language
Your company culture comes from the stories, peer pressure, and processes that employees and leaders use to describe acceptable behaviors in your organization.
When you use simple labels (that we call archetypes) to describe your culture, your team members can quickly see what’s really going on. Our Culture Audit identifies the collective and individual archetypes that are actually responsible for your department’s behavior and results.
We start with a brief questionnaire that each person on your team answers online. Participants receive a set of results and from these individual responses, an algorithm is used to identify the group culture.
• Leadership Team Dynamics
• Traditions / Stories / Gossip
• Policies and Procedures
• Leadership Behavior
• National Culture
• Peer Pressure
Our Culture Audit identifies personal and organizational archetypes. These are short-hand labels that describe how we talk about Cultural Drivers and determine behaviors.
• Employee Engagement
• Growth / Stability
[ Your culture originates from these among current and new employees ]
[ Our personal characteristics determine how we convert cultural drivers into action ]
[ These are "bottom-line" outcomes that happen when behaviors are aligned to intentions ]
What Our Culture Audit Can Do For You
Define the top drivers to get your department back on track so you become a star in the company and the envy of other departments.

How Our Culture Audit Works
We use a well-tested approach called CultureTalk. This end-to-end system measures the culture of an organization as well as the strengths of the leaders and teams that drive it.
Our online CultureTalk surveys use a framework of 12 archetypes that are used as short-hand narratives that describe how individuals shape your culture.
We help you measure the cultural values across your teams, locations, and departments. A Baseline Culture Audit assesses alignment and potential gaps resulting in a strategic action plan that impacts your culture design, integration, recruiting, retention, and the development of your leaders, teams, and brand.
