How Corporate Culture Drives Engagement and Accountability
Corporate culture is critical to an organization’s success. However, when I ask my clients to describe their culture their description is often very fuzzy.
I often facilitate 360 feedback surveys for my executive coaching clients. When I interview the client’s raters I get a pretty clear idea on how employees view the culture at work. Culture can be seen as the context or environment that supports or impedes people being fully engaged and accountable at work.
What Drives Results
While leaders regularly pore over financial, operations, marketing and sales reports, they generally lack specific tools to analyze corporate culture. Even worse, they show little curiosity about the ways in which cultural beliefs and attitudes affect performance and profitability.
Engagement and Accountability
Employee accountability and engagement are the driving forces behind achieving great results. As a manager, it’s your job to help employees see how their participation contributes to your organization’s success.
Employees become engaged when they can describe their role in outcomes and desired results.
Are you working in a professional services firm or other organization where executive coaches provide leadership development to grow emotionally intelligent leaders? Does your organization provide executive coaching for leaders who need to build a more successful corporate culture? High performance leaders tap into their emotional intelligence and social intelligence skills to fully engage employees and customers.
One of the most powerful questions you can ask yourself is “How does my contribution at work support my organization’s success?” Emotionally intelligent and socially intelligent organizations provide executive coaching as part of their peak performance leadership development program.
Working with a seasoned executive coach and leadership consultant trained in emotional intelligence and incorporating assessments such as the Bar-On EQ-I, CPI 260 and Denison Culture Survey can help you create a culture where all employees are fully engaged. You can become a leader who models emotional intelligence and social intelligence, and who inspires people to become fully engaged with the vision, mission and strategy of your company or law firm.
