Follow Zach on Social

I may be a “content expert,”

but you are the context expert.

My approach to consulting with organizations – ranging from small teams to large organizations – is built on collaborative generation. I believe, and research indicates, that organizational culture, behavior, design and leadership can’t be prescribed, they must be generated together.

Therefore, I make sure I take the time to come to know you, the human beings who make up your organization, and the context through which you and your people are living and working.

My consulting services are based in the latest positive organizational psychology and leadership research with a specific focus on:

  • Organizational and individual purpose in work
  • Purposeful organization design
  • Assessing employee engagement, commitment, motivation, and fulfillment
  • Optimizing organizational culture for experienced meaningfulness and purpose
  • Leadership development
  • Purpose-driven higher education curricula design

Developing a Purposeful Organization

Purpose-oriented organizations and their people aren’t productive because they have to be – they are productive because they deeply want to be.

When people are compelled by purpose, organizations thrive. Purpose-oriented organizations outperform their peers by an average of six to one and grow at faster rates. 

The four-phase process depicted below represents a research-backed path to becoming a Purposeful Organization.

Set-up an exploratory conversation with Zach.

The Path to Purpose

The path to purpose:

Phase 1:

Discover Purpose

Every organization has a reason for existence. The nature of this reason, however, is not always clear, compelling and effective in engaging and empowering stakeholders who want to be a part of something bigger than themselves.

I help organizations develop a clear, authentic compelling purpose that resonates with their stakeholder communities.

Phase 2:

Clarify Purpose

Many organizations have a healthy, symbolic understanding or intellectual knowledge of their purpose. However, a clear purpose is one that is believed at every level of the organization and permeates every mindset, behavior and process.

I help organizations embed the shared language and belief in the purpose at the organizational, group and individual level.

Phase 3:

Align Purpose

Understanding in detail how your organization’s purpose is enacted at every level is critical. In many instances, there can be a gap between communicated (branded) purpose and what is happening at the individual, group and process levels of the organization. Purpose consistency is the integrity of a purpose.

I help organizations develop meaningful work cultures, clear values and accountability structures to stay “on-purpose.”

Phase 4:

Deliver Purpose

No one cares why your organization exists unless you prove it through every channel, every day. Perhaps the most overlooked part of purposeful organizational design is the delivery systems of the purpose.

I help organizations intentionally design and implement experiences that create a consistent connection to purpose and meaningfulness through internal culture design and external stakeholder experience design.
