Design and Activate a Positive and Purposeful Culture
Zach uses a three-phase process and his Purposeful Culture Assessment & Blueprint tool to help you design, implement and assess a positive and purposeful organizational culture.
Culture is the medium through which an organization’s Purpose is delivered.
A Positive and Purposeful Culture is a designed and sustained system of beliefs, values, symbols, behaviors, and habits that cultivates wellbeing to enable the delivery of an organization’s Purpose.
THE ELEMENTS OF A POSITIVE & PURPOSEFUL CULTURE
Research finds positive cultures cultivate positive meaning (Meaningful), positive emotions (Positive), positive relationships (Connected), and psychological safety (Fear-Free).
People know how they and their work matters. People know how their work impacts other people, can see how their daily work enables a bigger purpose, and know how they can use their unique strengths to do the work.
People regularly experience more positive emotions than negative emotions. Positive emotions such as gratitude, joy, hope, pride, and inspiration are elicited through strategic practices.
People experience high-quality, trusting relationships.
Everyone believes that they will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns, or mistakes.
