THE CULTURAL BRILLIANCE ASSESSMENT™

Because when evolution is expected, people are poised to respond – and keep moving. ‘Adapting to change’ can be built into organizational design; the design can be adapted into the culture.

Cultural Brilliance Assessment


A cultural system is defined as mindsets, behaviors, and structures that sequence in often unseen patterns that drive communication, decision making, and results. At its core, culture is a set of beliefs and mindsets that create norms for behavior throughout an organization. These beliefs, mindsets, and norms may or may not be known by organizational members.

Depending on your goals, business, and reasons for assessing, you can use one, two, or all three of these tools. These assessment tools are designed to be conversation starters, to pique your work force’s curiosity, and discover what people really think about how your culture operates (the great, the not-so-good, and the broken areas).

OUR UNIQUE APPROACH USING THE THE CULTURAL BRILLIANCE ASSESSMENT GUIDE™

Because when evolution is expected, people are poised to respond – and keep moving. ‘Adapting to change’ can be built into organizational design; the design can be adapted into the culture.

THREE WAYS TO EXPLORE AND COMMUNICATE

We provide three ways for taking an in-house look at your cultural system: the Cultural Brilliance Assessment Wheel, the Cultural 360 Process, and the Cultural Brilliance Risk Analysis, . In business, culture is the primary source of untapped potential and people are hungry for change. When we start to see human beings ­– not human capital –  we can unlock the energy of invention, fuel creativity and drive results. Together, we can build brilliant cultures.

HERE’S THE CATCH:

All three assessment tools require participation from people at all levels and depart- ments within your organization. This is one key for buy-in, motivation, and accuracy during cultural change.

THE CULTURAL BRILLIANCE WHEEL

As you appraise each section of the “pie,” determine how much or little of each cultural aspect is present in your company.

The Cultural 360 Assessment

You’d love to engage in the Cultural Brilliance Audit, but you’re not sure you can get buy-in yet. This quick and easy health check is a great starting point. Here’s how it works: We interview six people from your organization – two leaders at the executive level, two mid-level managers, and two people on the front line. Based on our years of experience, we can quickly and accurately give you snapshot of your culture. We’ll specifically identify how your culture is both helping and hindering your company from functioning optimally in important areas.

WHAT IT TAKES:

Make the most of these three assessments. Require participation within your organization at all levels, at all departments, because this is the key. Everyone gets on-board to drive the motivation and better ensure buy-in and accuracy during the cultural change.

Meet the Culture Talk Survey System

What can be measured, can be molded. CultureTalk provides a simple, yet powerful framework for measuring the behavioral characteristics of corporate culture. Presented through human stories we call Archetypes; the results of a CultureTalk Assessment identify the strengths and potential pitfalls of an existing culture and reveal gaps that exist between the company’s vision and reality.

ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE SURVEY

Arising from the combined energy of a group, culture is experienced within the organization and projected out into the world. An organization’s shared beliefs and values become the unwritten rules of engagement that affect nearly every aspect of business—including how employees (and managers) show up, perform their jobs, make decisions, take initiative, and interact with each other, customers and the community.
