Build a High-Performance Culture
A Last 8% Culture
You need to move fast, adapt to a changing environment and deliver performance. Yet, your team is moving too slow when it comes to making tough decisions, and are avoiding the more challenging conversations that drive results.
Culture is at the heart of a high-performance organization. Unfortunately, most leaders misunderstand culture; they believe culture exists across the organization; it doesn’t. It exists primarily on teams. Second, they see culture as something that should be owned by the CEO and CHRO, believing it is their job to build the culture across the organization; it isn’t. Most CEO’s and CHRO’s get so overwhelmed when they think of tackling culture, that they avoid it and allow culture to be built haphazardly, which means that good people leave, and goals are not met.
In this powerful virtual or live keynote, your team will learn the results from our study of 7,500+ leaders that puts your managers and people leaders at the center of building your culture. Your people will learn specific tools to own the culture on their team in the critical moments, the Last 8%, the moments that create culture. The Last 8% are those tougher conversations and decisions that many people struggle with and avoid. When leaders feel agency and have the skills to lean into the difficult, they build high-performance teams that can become strong catalyst for positive culture change in your organization.
In This Powerful Program, Your Team Will Learn:
- What the two pillars of a high performing culture are: High-Connection (psychological safety) and High-Courage (ability to do hard things skillfully)
- How to build the culture on their team with our proprietary approach of Model & Own
- Specific tools to connect and coach their people to be their best in Last 8% Situations
- How to influence & engage others who are at a distance and create the conditions to keep your best and brightest
Pre-Program Culture Assessment
Our Culture Assessment has been used by Fortune 500 companies to understand where their culture sits on IHHP’s proprietary Culture Map. This assessment is the starting point so organizations can build a clear direction to becoming a Last 8% Culture. This assessment takes no more than 5 minutes to complete and provides the following benefits:
- The data gathered will be used to customize the program to each organization’s unique needs.
- By taking the assessment, it prepares the learner’s brain to think about their impact and behavior ahead of time.
- Key insights from the assessment are used to tailor the keynote to address what matters most to the participants.
- Post program, we will deliver a Last 8% Culture Assessment Executive report that will outline how to move forward with building a Last 8% Culture and lead their teams more effectively.
