Cultural Effectiveness Assessments
Leaders set the agenda. They influence the organization’s culture and the long-term effectiveness of the organization and they set the context within which organizational members strive for excellence and work together to achieve organizational goals.
Our work with firm leaders is based on research, particularly that of Robert A. Cooke, Ph.D., which highlights the relationship between leadership strategies, the impact leaders have on others, and effectiveness in the leadership role. This impact has enormous significance in helping understand organizational culture and the role that norms and expectations play in organizational effectiveness.
We define “culture” in the organizational context as being the shared norms and expectations that govern the way people approach their work and interact with each other. Such norms and expectations shape how organizational members believe how they are expected to conduct themselves, to collaborate with others, and to get things done. Based on research from the leading global organization in the leadership and organizational culture space our process and final report includes detailed information about how a firm may align its focus with productive behavior that impacts morale and firm profitability.
