Two businessmen on walls outdoors with large gap

“The first job of a leader—at work or at home—is to inspire trust. It’s to bring out the best in people by entrusting them with meaningful stewardships, and to create an environment in which high-trust interaction inspires creativity and possibility.” 

― Stephen M.R. Covey, The Speed of Trust: The One Thing that Changes Everything

Organizational DNA

Measure What Matters

“A person has integrity when there is no gap between intent and behavior…when he or she is whole, seamless, the same—inside and out. I call this “congruence.” And it is congruence—not compliance—that will ultimately create credibility and trust.”

― Stephen M.R. Covey, The SPEED of Trust: The One Thing that Changes Everything

The functional health of an organization is measured by the Core Values by which it operates.

Transforming Leadership believes that the Core Values of an organization are the “foundational” DNA of that organization. Your Core Values are WHO YOU ARE! Our Organizational DNA Profile and Report® will reveal to organizational leaders if a gap exists between who they are, their Demonstrated Core Values, and who they want to be, their Core Values Statement. As a Gap develops, trust erodes. Transforming Leadership can provide you with the tools to close the Gap, build trust, decrease turnover, and dramatically improve effectiveness and engagement.

The Organizational DNA Profile & Report reveals:

  • What managers/management (and the organization) really care about
  • Are there leadership challenges in a specific department/location?
  • Are there policies/procedures in place to drive Core Values?
  • Where do leadership gaps exist?
  • Where is there conflict between “who we say we are” and “who we really are?
  • Basic recommendations for “closing the gap.”
  • What employees perceive your values to be vs. not be…
  • Steps you can take to align your values.
  • Hidden core value strengths of your organization that you may be unaware of.
  • Reasons why your employees may not be performing at their optimal potential.
  • Conflicting messages that your employees may be receiving without your knowledge.
