Achieving Strong Values-Aligned Organisational Culture
Culture can be thought of as an iceberg, as conceptualised by Edward Hall in 1976. The visible parts of an organisational culture (i.e. employee benefits and perks) is often just the tip of the iceberg. It is heavily influenced by what lurks beneath the surface.
An organisational culture should therefore be thought of as the underlying beliefs, assumptions and values. How its members interact attributes to its unique social and psychological environment.
Inspired to help organisations create a Real Culture that is fully aligned with its core values, Dr. Peter Cheng created a 4-phase culture intervention programme that begins with an organisation’s core values in mind:
We facilitate sessions with the senior leadership team to articulate the values and the associated behavioural statements that are to drive the behaviours of their organisation.
2. Communication & Cascading
We enable the HR/LD/OD team of organisations to initiate organisation-wide activities to ensure employee awareness and embracement of the articulated values.
3. Realisation and Alignment
This highly sought-after phase helps employees to experience the organisational core values and what it means to live them out daily. Employees will also be facilitated to review policies and practices that are not aligned to the values, for refinement and alignment.
This phase equips core values champions of the organisation to design initiatives that will sustain the values, ensuring the culture sticks. We partner with organisations to identify trained core value champions within the organisation to ensure the new culture takes off.
Help Make Your Clients Organisation’s Culture Real
Real Values-Driven Culture provides the framework to facilitate organisations to have a clear sense of values-driven culture that influences and drives organisational behaviours in their bid to achieve organisational goals.
TIMELINE: The four phases can be implemented over 3-6 months depending on the client's needs and resource availability.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Clients can expect to be guided by the Real Culture licensed consultants to articulate their organisation core values, formulate strategies to communicate and cascade the values, ensure their people live out their espoused values, identify the policies and practices that need alignment and finally put in place key initiatives to sustain the core values within the organisation.
