Culture & Work Environment Course Correct
This global non-profit organization set out to prepare for increased growth and the impact on the work environment and culture.
Course of Action:
We developed a strategy and plan for how to enable a positive culture and work environment during high growth. Actions included:
- Conducted an organizational assessment to understand current/past employee perspective of changes to work environment and culture.
- Identified “root cause(s)” of current challenges and provided recommendations on how to address while managing the change effectively through their leaders & improved communications.
- Managed the communications consistently through multiple channels.
- Provided Executive Coaching to individuals to support the culture shift and behavior changes.
These actions reduced administrative activities that no longer added value and increased engagement through improved team-wide communication and opportunities for feedback. A new decision-making process kept the focus on top priorities by limiting the number of new projects initiated. Leadership effectiveness was also improved.
