Strengthening Culture Coming Out of COVID
This is a time where the challenges of COVID have actually created opportunities. If you want to strengthen a culture and implement changes that are going to bring everybody together, at least the organization has a common near-term goal. This is what we call a Rallying Point. Oftentimes, when an organization is trying to shift the culture in a different, more high-performing, or more positive direction, employees want to know…WHY?
Often, organizations have a difficult time articulating the rationale behind the changes that it’s making. But in today’s environment, there’s an obvious Rallying Point. Maybe it’s worded differently for different organizations, but essentially, organizations want to survive and thrive. They want to get through this time of turmoil and uncertainty and come out on the other end as a more cohesive organization, positioned to succeed.
To strengthen the culture, first you have to understand where you’re at today and where you want to go in the future. You have to understand your gaps and your strengths, areas that need to be addressed and areas to emphasize.
The CSS Effect: We can help you strengthen your culture by first conducting a culture assessment, creating that vision for the future as well as that near-term Rallying Point, and charting a course for how to become the cohesive and high-performing team that you need more than ever.
