High achieving companies are characterized by their strong and empowering culture
If you are not actively investing in your culture you are at risk for ending up with a mediocre culture or, even worse – a toxic one. By intentionally designing a thriving people and purpose-centric culture you can successfully scale your company and become a star in your field.
Your company culture is the foundation of your company behavior
Culture is a way to drive behavior. It is a way to align people with shared values to support each other in overcoming challenges and achieving ambitious goals in an efficient and meaningful way. It impacts everything from productivity, engagement, and customer loyalty, to the speed of innovation, retention of talent, growth, and, of course, profitability.
Imagine your company where everyone is thriving and performing as their best selves, contributing to your vision, and moving beyond your dreams. This looks like:
Showing up to your weekly management meeting where everyone on your team is buzzing with the excitement of all the achievements made during the week.
Being in awe of the all magic and initiatives your teams continually bring to life. Experiencing seamless collaboration between your commercial and engineering teams during co-creation sessions with your dream persona tribes.
Leading inspiring board meetings where you present strong financial and cultural impact results month after month. Celebrating with your sales teams the closing of the biggest deals in the history of your company.
Feeling a daily sense of accomplishment, and smiling at the realization that everyone is united in achieving your ambitious goals.
How do you design a high performance culture?
With a thriving culture as an ever-increasing competitive advantage, the questions you need to consider include:
- What is the true state of your culture?
- What can you do today to ensure you are well-positioned to attract and keep the best talent?
- How will you utilize the power of cultural and behavioral design to stay ahead of your competition in the days, weeks, and months ahead?

She is always well-prepared and proactive in her teachings to ensure that her clients maximize the value of the programs. When I talk about Therése with fellow founders, I often refer to her as a “founder therapist” – someone that can empathize and share the burden of your journey and help you navigate successfully. I’ve personally recommended her to many of my founder friends who have subsequently gone on to refer her to their friends – a testament to her continued impact.
