We the people, to form a more

We the people, to form a more perfect workplace...

Most leaders struggle to build cultures in which people work together fluidly and joyfully despite their differences. Chris helps executives get to the heart of teamwork through crafting Organizational Constitutions – a methodology proven to help people understand and leverage the servant purpose and core values they do share. When executives tap into these core drivers of human behavior, they forge cultural cohesion. They liberate their people to become purposeful, positive, and productive corporate citizens.

Chris’ proven three-step process helps leaders bring their Organizational Constitution to life:

  • 1.

    Define

    Chris guides senior leaders to identify and codify their organization's servant purpose, shared values, valued behaviors, strategies, and goals in the form of an Organizational Constitution – a formal document that is publicly signed by every employee, from the front line to the CEO.

  • 2.

    Align

    Chris coaches senior leaders to model and champion the servant purpose, values, and valued behaviors contained in their Organizational Constitution in every interaction. Processes are built to equip and empower every employee at every level to be positive, purposeful, and productive workplace citizens.

  • 3.

    Refine

    Chris supports leaders to monitor progress, celebrate gains, and refine their culture through ongoing assessment protocols keyed to their Organizational Constitution. Ongoing culture refinement gets embedded into the way work gets done.

Using an Organizational Constitution, Chris helps leaders who struggle to understand why people don’t work together well in their cultures. Chris helps executives get to the heart of teamwork and align people along the core driver of human behavior -- values. Through a proven methodology, Chris helps teams and entire organizations understand the core values they share so that they can work together fluidly and joyfully despite their differences.
