Why does culture matter?
Culture extends to brand identity. Culture attracts, lands and keeps good-fit employees. Strong
cultures develop strong leaders and capable employees—employees develop essential skills for
collaboration and performance and those skills extend to personal development and tools for
better relationships at work and at home. An aligned culture allows operations to flow with ease.
Simply put, organizations with strong and vital cultures perform better

Seven Skill We’ll Explore…

1. Presence: To stabilize physiology, expand awareness, and open mind, heart and will to the group.
2. Sensing: To continue presence practice and to intentionally bring full attention to the meeting.
3. Story: To identify and articulate your culture in action.
4. Tensions: Tensions identify opportunities to learn, create better alignment and to innovate (but left
unaddressed, they can fester and waste energy).
5. Conversations: Conversations to explore tensions allow the group to learn, create better alignment and innovate.
6. Actions: To move forward with smart action.
7. Appreciation: To appreciate the process and intentionally bring full attention to the closing of the meeting.
