Bringing Strategy to Life
We see it happen all the time: a disconnect between executives, who talk about strategy at theoretical levels, and the rest of the organization charged with bringing strategy to life.
To break this cycle and elevate your performance, culture and strategy must work hand in hand.
Successful business outcomes require business leaders to embrace and activate their cultural initiatives. When they walk the walk, and when company goals and values are aligned from top to bottom, strategy is propelled into action.
A healthy culture energizes your people to drive your strategic objectives forward. Easy to say, but not always easy to do.
Aveus can help you define, repair, or simply unlock your company’s cultural strengths to solve business challenges, seize new opportunities, and achieve transformative results. We will bring the daily decisions of your employees into focus to illuminate what’s working and what needs to change.
This won’t happen by chance. This will happen by design.
What does this look like?
Unhealthy cultures show up in poor performance. If you’re seeing results you don’t like, we can help you get to the root cause operationally by uncovering cultural barriers that are holding you back.
Market requirements shift at lightning-speed these days, so that even strong performance cultures need to adapt. We can help you build on cultural strengths while also helping your organization evolve.
Cultures that rely on and reward heroics, firefighting, or extraordinary efforts can drive some success and still be unhealthy and unsustainable. If your organization is over-reliant on these extreme efforts, we can help you unearth norms that reinforce them. Then, through disciplined behavioral changes, we can help you shift your culture to a healthier place.
Culture by design means you understand the needed values and behaviors required for the successful execution of your strategies. Are you clear about what you need for culture to reinforce strategy and vice versa? Unsure? We can help you align culture and strategy so that both are positively reinforcing.
Answer these questions with your organization in mind:
Do you see people acting in a manner consistent with your strategic direction?
Do your colleagues feel they have the freedom to act and make decisions that directly support your mission?
Do your leaders demonstrate an ability and willingness to change?
Do you see people acting primarily from self-interest or organizational interest?
Does your culture reinforce innovation? Or has innovation stalled or been limited by current practices?
