Culture is often mistakenly thought of as an intangible, something that “just happens” as your company evolves and grows. In reality, an organization’s culture impacts the ability to achieve goals and culture affects the bottom line. At PSG we’re serious about these impacts.
Objectives define your goals and destination. Behaviours are the actions taken to reach the destination. Culture is the composite of the individual behaviours across your team. Our Culture Shaping & Leadership Acceleration programs have been developed to align your business culture and enable your leaders and teams with collaboration concepts and tools to put into practice on a day-to-day basis.
Our programs respect the principles of adult learning to optimize value to every participant and your organization:
- Adults want real benefits from the time they invest
- Adults want a learning process that respects their experience
- Adults want to understand why as much as how
- Adults want feedback that tells them how well they are doing
- Adults want the learning process to be fun and engaging
