Part 3 : Setting and Building your Desired Company Culture

You will learn to: 

  • Participate in a values identification process to name what is most important to you in your organizational culture or in how you want your team to “be”.

  • Discover how to use the question “What do I need to feel safe…” to build substance around the values you want to see and experience

  • Use a list of critical questions and sentence starters for getting to the experiences of your team and using them to anchor company values

  • Practice using a “clear expectations” checklist to ensure you have shared understanding on critical issues

In this session you will discover how to use the four learnings to create a climate of community belonging and commitment. Specific strategies to use in both live and virtual settings will be provided.


Is this something you could use - say - for the rest of your life? You bet!
