Organizational Culture

The beliefs, ideologies, principles, and values of an organization form its culture. The culture of the workplace controls the way employees behave amongst themselves as well as with people outside the organization. Company culture also encourages employees to stay motivated and loyal, unites the workforce and extracts the best out of every team member.

The first step in creating your ideal culture is to conduct a diagnostic survey. This will allow your organization time to reflect, gather honest feedback, celebrate areas of success and identify areas for improvement.

If you are having challenges with employee effectiveness and/or turnover, building your organizational culture may help. Yvonne can lead your organization in identifying strategies to define and promoting a healthy organizational culture.

Climate Assessment

Organizational climate assessment is an assessment of the general atmosphere within the organization. Specifically, it involves looking at the perceptions of the employees in relation to the organization and the workplace. It also involves looking at other factors that affect productivity and work culture such as ethics, compensation, and communication.

Yvonne has led many organizations through this process, enabling leadership to find answers and discover ways to increase satisfaction level in the workplace and consequently increase productivity.

High Functioning Teams

Teamwork has a dramatic effect on organizational performance. An effective team can help an organization achieve incredible results. A team that is not working can cause unnecessary disruption, failed delivery and strategic failure.

High–achieving teams reduce costs more quickly, go to market more effectively and launch products more smoothly. In the case of small to midsize organizations, who are even more dependent on the quality of their teams, having the right, strong performing team in place is the real key to business growth.

Yvonne has extensive experience in helping teams function more effectively and efficiently, thus yielding better results for their organizations.
