What is culture change and why might your organisation need one?

A company’s culture is the way it does things.

If your business results are not improving year on year according to your expectations, don’t worry – you’re not alone. We can help you to strategically review and change your culture in ways that will drive better business results.

Typical culture changes organisations are making are from hierarchy and bureaucracy –  towards shared values and facilitative leadership with engaged and enabled employees.

According to Gallup’s most recent report (2016):

  • 66% of employees do not feel motivated at work
  • 14% are ‘actively disengaged’ (as in ‘unhappy’, ‘unproductive’ and liable to spread negativity)

Engaged employees work harder and stay longer. We believe it is the responsibility of your leadership team to engage your employees and this is where our culture change work with you begins.

HOW DO WE WORK WITH YOU TO BRING ABOUT CULTURE CHANGE?

Any form of culture change, employee engagement related or not, starts at the top. Growing a culture of high performance and delivering sustained results requires leaders to become models for excellence by first paying attention to their own development and then working out how to help others achieve their potential.

So we start at the top, to understand how your leadership team works.

HOW DO WE HELP YOU TO IMPROVE EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT?

We work alongside your senior teams to create contexts where individuals can do their best work everyday. We coach your managers to help them develop their own leadership style that balances business skills with people skills.

Employees see senior executives who are able to develop such a leadership style as open-minded and trustworthy. Employees value their perspective and want to do well for them, meaning that investment in employee engagement is soon returned, thanks to the talent it enables you to retain, develop and recruit.

“Quest Leadership helped us to strategically review and change our culture in ways that directly led to improved employee recruitment, retention and engagement and business results.”
