Culture trumps strategy!
It’s an interesting either/or proposition. No doubt great corporate cultures are built by design. Having a vision and values statement written on a poster isn’t going to be enough to create the trust-based culture that ensures high levels of innovation and productivity.
A leadership team that ignores, or pays lip service to culture only contributes to a deeply rooted toxic environment. Our consulting work focuses on the relationship between culture and strategy. We hold your leadership team accountable for the creation of a vibrant, healthy, inspiring and positive corporate culture that produces extraordinary business results.
LMA’s expertise in strategic planning, organizational development and culture change helps transform companies into great places to work. We uncover areas of improvement and help companies to develop practices, policies and behaviors that build trust into the culture of the workplace.
We start with an assessment of your current culture, survey employees for engagement and commitment, and interview leaders to determine the real values, beliefs and behaviors that are driving your current business performance.
We can tell fairly quickly whether your culture is functioning as trust-based or fear-based. We then pinpoint the organizational practices that are contributing to current results. Changing those systemic practices and behaviors is the hard work. Getting those changes to stick is even harder. We don’t enter into this work lightly, but when we do we are 100% committed to your success.
Changing culture is a monumental task that can take years for the seeds of change to sow. Therefore, we choose our clients carefully. We don’t want to waste your time or money, nor ours. We’re looking for a few visionary leaders who are committed to the effort of transforming their culture and becoming one of those companies everyone wants to work for.
