Corporate culture encompasses how we share information and communicate with one another, how we treat people, how we make decisions, the kinds of policies (or lack of policies) we have, and how we are structured. These proprietary tools will help you and your team make cultural enhancements for your company. They are based on Jason Richmond’s book Culture Spark: 5 Steps to Ignite and Sustain Organizational Growth, as well as our comprehensive course Culture Spark: Your Toolkit for a Winning Corporate Culture, both of which can help you drive transformational culture change at your organization.

Develop a Values-Driven Culture
Values help leaders and employees hold each other accountable in a neutral yet meaningful way and instill a shared pride. Clearly defined and lived values can help you make difficult decisions, especially when numbers and analysis alone can’t give you the answer.
Engagement surveys measure an individual employee’s emotional and intellectual connection and commitment to the company. They target employees’ feelings about their day-to-day work experience, their managers, and leadership. Engaged employees are more productive, motivated, innovative, and they take more ownership of results.
People want purpose. They are not merely driven by business results—though business results are essential. Purpose is what inspires people to do more than put in their hours. Purpose creates a shared rallying cry for your employees.
