Workshop 2

Culture Mapping:
A Systematic & Intentional Tool For Designing Great Company Culture




Culture is too important to be left intangible and described by ambiguous words like “innovative,” “collaborative,” or “open.” That’s where culture mapping comes in.  A culture map makes the intangible tangible by answering the questions:


What do we value?

How should we work together?

What makes people successful here?

Who should we hire?

What can guide us in decision making?


This 1/2 day Culture Mapping workshop will walk you through a process to uncover the ways you can create a workplace that is empowering, inspiring, efficient, or effective as it could be.  It will immerse your team in the latest thinking and tools for diagnosing and visualizing organizational culture.


You will leave with a robust set of approaches for diagnosing the culture you have, co-creating the culture you want, and visualizing these ideas so the invisible can be made visible.   This workshop will help you get unstuck and into action to build the culture you want to work in.
