The Cultural Challenge
Your traction is accelerating, but things are not coming together easily. Sometimes, it feels like you are walking in a sandstorm in the desert when trying to find your way. Other times it feels like you are on top of the world.
You are looking for a greater vision and value alignment with your team, but their commitment is uneven. You have some rockstars delivering phenomenal results, but there are also cruisers skating along doing the minimum.
You are looking to attract and keep High Achievers with deep commitment and drive, but it’s inconsistent and challenging to build your dream team.
You are looking to further accelerate your growth beyond previous highs, but the foundation feels increasingly shakier the higher you go.
Your Culture is Your Foundation
Imagine you’re building the castle or skyscraper of your wildest dreams. Would you direct its foundations to be built on quicksand, or would you ensure the foundations are solidly connected to bedrock so you know it will stand safe and tall for generations to come? Connected to bedrock, of course! The same is true for companies because your culture is your foundation and weak foundations only become more unstable as they are pushed beyond their initial limits.
High Performance Cultures can be Designed
Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast
Optimally designing major changes to enable dramatic leaps in organizational speed, efficiency, and performance requires at least the same degree of commitment and planning as you dedicated to your first product. What truly sets resilient, successful companies apart from the crowd is their deeply-ingrained company culture.
The correlation between exceptional culture and exceptional performance is captured most clearly in the truism that “Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast.” Meaning, in its simplest form, that while strategic planning can chart your most efficient paths toward success, it is only your company’s culture (e.g. the collective actions taken and inputs provided across your organization day-to-day) that can translate those plans into outstanding results.

Designing Your Thriving Culture: Building a
Strong Cultural Foundation that Scales
State of Affairs and Cultural Assessment
To build a thriving or brilliant culture, we first need to identify your starting point with a Cultural Assessment. Depending on your need, speed, and ambition, there are several options and levels of depth for completing this assessment.
The results will illuminate:
How strong is your company as a unit? (Your Foundation)
How thriving is your current culture? (Your Cultural Strength)
How scalable is your culture? (Your Cultural Scalability)
Knowing this will make possible the design of a thriving culture capable of supporting your current and future growth. To kickstart this work, gaining an in-depth understanding of your starting point with a State of Affairs and Cultural Assessment is the easiest way to get started.
Establishing Cultural Longevity: Codifying the Best of What Makes You Great
Codifying Culture and Cultural Playbook
The decision to create a temporary vs. long-lasting company is similar to deciding whether to construct a building very quickly upon quicksand or more sustainably, with foundations anchored firmly within the bedrock. As you build and grow your company, codifying your culture and developing a detailed Cultural Playbook will anchor your foundation to the bedrock and enable you to build a thriving, high-performing culture capable of withstanding the challenges of your journey.
Realizing and Executing Your Ambitious Goals with a High Performance Culture
Cultural Foundation with Your Cultural Plan
After completing your Cultural Assessment, Codifying your Culture, and developing your Cultural Playbook, it’s time to engage with your company’s next stage. The focus will now be on establishing the pillars of your Cultural Plan. This includes uncovering the answers to which initiatives will have an outsized impact on your company this month, quarter, and year? How can you effectively support your high performing teams in achieving, communicating, and leading as your company grows? How can you best protect your company from toxicity? Developing these answers and more will enable your Cultural Plan to pave the way for your high performance culture to achieve greatness, especially in rapid-growth environments.
