values summit

A highly effective method for engaging a broad base of employees in organization change is to engage them in a Values Summit.

The Values Summit brings together a diagonal slice of the organization to:

  1. Review the organization's strategic direction and goals.
  2. Learn about the organization's history and decode its DNA.
  3. Clarify the values they wish to keep, leave behind or develop going forward.

Summit participants then engage the rest of the organization in similar activities. This results in an organization-wide alignment around a set of highly meaningful values. Leadership and HR practices are improved and the organization's culture is fully defined to allow the fulfillment of its goals.
