Cultures thrive when there is a shared language and commitment to a set of behaviors that align with the stated values. The resource at right is a process that we’ve used with organizations and teams across the world who are ready to put their values into practice.

We recommend this exercise as a way for executive teams, culture/HR/talent teams, and people managers to get clear on the specific behaviors that are expected, encouraged, and rewarded within their culture.

We suggest 8-20 participants for this exercise, though the participant number can flex up or down depending on your organization. The process not only yields measurable and observable behaviors that support your values, but the process itself is a powerful way to build trust, rumble skills, and engagement.
