CULTURE CHANGE & TRANSFORMATION  |

“It is not the strongest, nor the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change”  |

DEALING WITH A RAPIDLY CHANGING WORLD  |

The world of work is changing rapidly and extremely under the impact of technology, climate change, globalization and demographics. The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly led the world in some unexpected directions. Remote work and virtual meetings are likely to continue and may propel faster adoption of automation and AI, especially in work arenas with high physical proximity. Dealing with this rapidly changing world is tough. Companies need to reimagine and rethink their essence. What are they really good at? How do they still make a difference, adding value? What should they stop doing? What might they start doing? Building a future business for future markets with future talents, is challenging job to do.

CULTURE CHANGE & TRANSFORMATION STARTS WITH LEADERSHIP  |

Market insights show that organizational culture change and transformation starts at the top with leadership at individual and team level. They must be ready to go, to walk the talk, to make the important decisions, to listen and engage with their people, operate as one team to increase the chances of making organizational culture change and transformation work.

REALIGNING YOUR LEADERSHIP TEAMS AND ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE TO YOUR BUSINESS STRATEGY  |

Organizational culture creates the foundation for strategy to succeed and will either be a company’s greatest asset or largest liability. Sound strategy must be supported by an enabling corporate culture. A supportive culture is most often intentional. It is built by design.

Then, culture will drive performance. With our Culture Change & Transformation solution, we help organizations build an intentionally created organizational culture aligned to the business strategy. We focus on the significant variables, elements of culture that matter the most to performance. Most companies focus on employee engagement, but that doesn’t tell the whole story about the business performance.

We help management make transformations work, shift organizational culture, change mindsets and realize behavioral changes towards a high-performance culture.

“TEAM EFFECTIVENESS WORKSHOP SET GOOD FOUNDATION FOR OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM IN THE NEW YEAR!”

“It was an absolute pleasure working with Richard Vincent. He has a good understanding of organizational needs and was able to advice how I can use the personality and behavioral assessment tool to gain insights and development for my leadership team in APAC.

Apart from the 1:1 feedback session, Richard conducted a workshop for my leadership team to help us understand our team dynamics and how we can work together more effectively.

I would say that the workshop is one of the highlight in our 3 days meeting and set a good foundation for our team in the new year!”

“UNIQUE ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE – AND CAREER VALUES TESTS”

“As a HR professional, I’ve experienced many assessment tools available in the markets.  The uniqueness of the personality and behavioral assessments is about the report on ‘Ideal organizational culture’ and ‘Career value’, which clearly differentiates this tool from others in the market.

These 2 new perspectives clearly provide the insights for both candidate and company if they can fit each other well on top of the normal communication, personality and leadership style assessment.

This tool can be used for both selection and development purpose. I would highly recommend this tool to a company which strongly believes in ‘right people in the right job makes the difference’.”
