Making Cultural Change

Hey Brandy Ferrer here with Pathfinder Strategies.  I want to talk a little about making cultural change. A lot of times when we talk about that people go into freak out mode, right? It sounds like something that’s very expensive and time-consuming.  It’s sort of this big fluffy thing.  In reality, there are five primary drivers in culture, and you’re probably doing some of those things really well right now and there may be some areas for opportunity.  So I want to share with you those five key drivers today.  This is part of our High Five Culture model.

So the first driver is Vision and Values.  So who are you? Who do you want to be? Where are you going? That really the underpinning of your company culture

The second key driver is your Hiring practices.  So when your hiring, are taking into consideration not just skill but also cultural contribution and value alignment?

The third key driver in making any kind of meaningful positive change in company culture is Employee Experience.  So do your employees have the tools and resources they need to be successful? Are they being fairly compensated?

The fourth key driver is Team Alignment.  So are your teams working together collaboratively? What kind of environment are you creating to foster not just collaboration but creativity as well?

Finally, the last driver is Leadership Development.   So how are you continuing to advance the skills and competencies of the talented individuals already within your organization? And are you training them to meet the business needs of tomorrow?

those are the five primary key drivers in making cultural change.  Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be sharing some more information about each one of those drivers.  In the meantime, if you have thoughts, questions or comments please feel free to leave them.
