Every organization wants it. Yet few achieve it. Why? Transforming a culture to a great place to work and produce results requires imprinting a new and different way of thinking about people; the environment within which they work, and embedding that thinking in the organizational culture.
Coaching different thinking to transform cultures is the cornerstone of what The Russell Consulting Group (TRCG) does. And we do it well because of five fundamental beliefs upon which the consulting practice is built.
- People are more powerful than they give themselves credit for. Any interaction allows for self-discovery over providing an answer.
- People are accountable and want to give their very best. Coach for solutions over focusing on problems.
- Every person in an organization, whether a leader or individual contributor, is a leader. Leading can be assumed by anyone in the job they were hired to do. It is not based on privilege, position, or education.
- Leadership is a state of mind. Not a set of behaviors to learn and master or a position to exercise the EGO’s power.
- “Teaching a man to fish over giving them the fish” is the best approach to keeping the energy of the culture alive. Embed the knowledge and technology in the organization enabling their reliance on external resources.
Framework for cultural transformation
These beliefs form the basis of a framework, which has proven over time that a culture of partnership; transparency; ownership (individual & collective accountability); utilization of skills & talents, and mutually respectful relationships can be achieved, and employee satisfaction; work-life balance and productivity can be sustained over the long term.
The framework is developed around a single idea: know and master the Ego. It includes the traditional model and practices of organizational development (two assessments, individual and leader coaching sessions, team building, foundational and advanced training services in three areas: leadership development, employee empowerment, and the shaping of the environment to meet human needs.)
What makes this framework unique, however, is the incorporation of the psychology and dynamics of human interactions within an organization and the technology of discovering one’s Ego to access who you really are as a leader. When that discovery happens, leadership elevates. Take the step through the door to transform your culture and leadership.
