Explore Your Organization’s DNA and Leverage Your Organization’s Culture

What is an organization’s culture and cultural DNA? And why is culture so important to shaping behavior, language, and what’s possible in an organization? Organizational culture is “the way we are” today. It’s “the way we do things around here,” even if we’ve forgotten why we’re doing them. It represents our “internal brand promise” to our employees the way our external brand communicates who we are to our customers. Organizational DNA is a property of the organization’s culture. It is the historical genetic code at the root of these behaviors. Explore the roots of your history, engage your people, and design a future together that fulfills your shared purpose. In this video you will get a 23 minute introduction to Kimberly’s workshops that enable you to:

  • Explore tools to help you explore the treasures of your organization’s DNA. 
  • Learn to engage your people on a journey to discovery your organization’s unique identity.
  • Leverage that shared identity to create truly engaged employees and a truly cohesive team. 
  • Explore what matters most—that priceless, yet intangible, essence called “organizational culture”—through highly interactive exercises that you can repeat in your organization. 
  • Be prepared to lead your team on a cultural expedition that purposely leverages these invisible, yet ever-present, strategic advantages – your organization’s culture and cultural DNA.

You should watch this video if you want to get started on the journey to create a clear and coherent identity for your organization that inspires your people, including a purpose beyond profit and a mission that matters.

The Biggest Obstacles to Success in Today’s Organizations

 
Being a guest on Jon’s podcast was a stimulating exploration of the powerful forces working against success in organizations, and how to overcome those obstacles. Most organizations are DESIGNED to FAIL. Their very STRUCTURE creates dysfunction through the magic of “power poisoning”. And a misguided focus on MANAGEMENT at the expense of effective LEADERSHIP creates a downward spiral where no one feels responsible for the dysfunction that is undermining their success.
