Driving Results with an Organizational Constitution

What separates good companies from great companies? Great companies are as intentional about values alignment as they are about company performance.

Based on his book, The Culture Engine, Chris presents the three secrets of how leaders create high performing, values-aligned companies:

  1. They design their desired culture,
  2. They align behaviors to that desired culture, and
  3. They refine practices over time as the culture evolves.

Chris shares how culture clients have boosted engagement, service, and profits by creating an organizational constitution and then managing to it.

Chris tailors his messages to the needs of each particular audience:

For senior leaders, Chris shares the strategy involved in using an organizational constitution to refine a company’s culture. He uses examples from his experiences guiding and coaching dozens of senior leaders over the past twenty years. Chris helps senior leaders understand the vital need today for both performance accountability and values accountability in their organizations.

For business unit leaders and line managers, Chris shares how to implement culture change using an organizational constitution. He outlines his practical, step-by-step approach to engaging team members in the creation of your organizational constitution. He helps leaders understand the need to model the values and behaviors outlined in their organizational constitution. Chris then provides examples of how leaders have held themselves, managers, and staff accountable for both performance and values.
