Congratulations. You've hired great people. They're turning out great work. But, are they doing it together?
And if they are, is that culture of collaboration built to last?
As you add to your team, you face new challenges: communication breakdowns, lost vision, power struggles, complicated reporting structures, decreased morale, lower retention rates - you see where this is headed. Your pristine culture isn't forevermore.
Your culture can scale. I can help you from the start. Here's the process:
This isn't your grand-dad's performance review. I'll interview your org chart for collaborative strengths & weaknesses.
You'll get a report of what you're doing well, what could stand to to improve, and recommendations on what to fix today.
Working from your benchmark, we'll design low-friction & high-reward culture changes that play to your teams' strengths.
"Little wins" for the whole company build toward bigger goals. New incentives are carefully aligned to keep the team on track.
Workplace culture is a muscle - without exercise, it's victim to atrophy. Stay toned as your team grows & face new challenges.
Together, we'll revisit problem-solving techniques, develop new benchmarks, & design new culture changes to implement.
"Businesses often forget about the culture, and ultimately, they suffer for it because you can't deliver good service from unhappy employees."
-Tony Hsieh, CEO Zappos
