POSITIVE CULTURE BUILDING

You could give your company's future no greater gift than to put your energy into company culture. What you perceive it to be, what your employees think it is, what's working, what's not and how to address those pieces to really allow your company's vision be held up by your greatest advocates and champions - your employees.


Trust. Good communication. A healthy relationship with conflict. Emotionally intelligent conversations. Investing in creating healthy cultures has a direct line to a healthy financial bottom line.

Excited to talk about it? Me too.

CULTURE EATS STRATEGY FOR BREAKFAST

Positive culture is a strong predictor of corporate success

Creating positive culture is a key competitive business advantage for corporations today. When done properly, with focus on values and needs of the organization, positive culture creates a tremendous amount of energy and improves the organization’s ability to thrive.

Shared, enduring, pervasive, enduring and implicit culture directly positively relates to employee engagement and motivation.

Trust in the leadership of organizations is a leverage point for more engaged employees, better retention, more collaboration and higher amounts of self-reported joy on the job.  Research has found that those working in high trust companies enjoyed their jobs 60% more, were 70% more aligned with their companies’ purpose and felt 66% closer to their colleagues and experienced 40% less burnout. 

Nothing more needs to be said - research shows clearly that positive culture building counts - not only to the team's wellness and retention, but to the corporate financial bottom line.

“Kelly not only brought all staff and board members together with shared values but reminded us of our deep connection to aspects of the work we had taken for granted. She facilitated and coached our company through a value session while we were on pause from covid-19 and creating new strategic priorities.

Kelly’s ability to bring us together wholeheartedly and with genuine positivity is valuable to our work culture. Her work has increased our love of the work and reassured us we're on the right path moving forward.

We plan to work with Kelly when onboarding new staff and board members in the future and facilitate our ongoing value sessions to help keep us accountable to our priorities and focus on the positive nature of our work.”
