What’s the link between Organization Culture and Climate – and why do they matter?

For decades, organizations have struggled to engage people. According to Gallup, just within the US, disengagement costs over 450 billion dollars a year. While many businesses focus on IP or market assets, at the end of the day, without strong people, organizations fail.

For decades, organizations have struggled to engage people. According to Gallup, just within the US, disengagement costs over 450 billion dollars a year.  While many businesses focus on IP or market assets, at the end of the day, without strong people, organizations fail. Peter Drucker, legendary management expert, said, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast” — but how do leaders shape culture? Culture is the knowledge that determines “correct” behavior: “how we do things around here.”

Climate is a summary of how people feel about working within a particular culture. Culture is slow to change, climate is rapid. Climate is something people feel — and it’s massive driver of performance. Just consider: Do you want to come work in a place that feels toxic… and how hard will you work there?

The Vital Signs EQ Performance Metrics are statistically validated and normed assessments based on robust international sample.  This process allows for accurate comparison between scales and provides built-in benchmarks.  Each of the VS tools has a different questionnaire, but all share the same model.  The online questionnaires take about 10 minutes, and are scored anonymously and confidentially.  There is a mix of quantitative scoring and focused narrative questions to provide context and depth to the data.

 

Strong Leadership, Teams & Organizations

The Vital Signs Model applies at three levels:

How capable are leaders at building a healthy climate? Leadership Vital Signs measures leadership,  as  building a context of trust, where people feel motivated, are adaptable to change, work together, and can be effective.

How strong are teams? The Team Vital Signs measures the work-group's level of trust, motivation, adaptability to change, teamwork and execution.

Is this a vital organization? The Organizational Vital Signs tool measures the same five drivers across an enterprise or entity.

What Drives Team Performance?          The Five Vital Signs

A high performing team or workplace climate is grounded in trust.  People have a sense of safety and assurance so they’ll take risks, share, innovate, and go beyond their own comfort zones.

People need to feel energized and committed to doing more than the minimum requirement: Motivation.

They need to be adaptable and innovative: Change.

They need to  collaboration and communicate to take on the challenges:  Teamwork.

They need to be focused and accountable: Execution.
