Culture Diagnostics and Audits
Our Culture Diagnostics & Audits solution is more than just data gathering. We call it the art of “turning data into impactful insights”. We believe that good research and measurement design can draw out insights that can hinder and/or accelerate your transformation. There is “no one best culture” and the desired culture must be one that amplifies the organisation’s purpose and success outcomes. With this in mind, we seek to take stock of staff’s current experience with the organisation culture in terms of what promotes and inhibits. We do this through both organisation-wide culture assessment and leadership team values assessment.
Our solution enables you to build your transformation strategy on actionable data and insights. A data-driven strategy enables you to make a stronger case to your stakeholders for commitment building. We also help measure your progress against your baseline data so you can celebrate quick wins to re-energise, iterate and ramp up efforts where progress is lacking.

Human Capital Transformation
Through various interventions, we work with leadership teams to achieve alignment of the shared goals and establish human capital systems to reinforce the desired culture to achieve the desired organisational goals.
Leaders play a critical role in identifying and grooming talent. Great Leaders understand the importance of engaging their workforce to ensure that every staff understand the goals of
the organisation, work together to implement the articulated strategy and achieve the desired results at the individual and team levels.
Some leaders choose to “buy” talent, some choose to “build” talent. In a dynamic and changing business landscape whereby skills and knowledge are critical in enabling the organisation to be competitive and be future-ready, leaders must do both. There are times when Leaders have to make tough decisions to “bounce” talent when they no longer positively contribute or worse, when they inhibit growth of the organisation.
Great leaders and organisations establish the right human capital systems and processes to attract and retain the right talent in the most effective ways, with the help of data science to facilitate decision-making.
We work with Leaders to design and implement human capital systems to achieve these common people issues.

Organisation Trust and Results
Organisation trust is key to any transformation efforts. This is especially true where there are many unknowns ahead and no one in the organisation can claim that he/she is the expert in all things. There is a strong call for personal and organisational agility and collaboration involving multiple disciplines. With trust (or psychological safety), people are unafraid to try new ways, admit wrongdoings and learn together. To gain this advantage, teams must:
- Establish Vulnerability-based Trust
When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another, they are able to build vulnerability-based trust.
- Engage in Conflict Around Ideas
When there is trust, team members are able to engage in unfiltered, constructive debate of ideas.
- Commit to Decisions
When team members are able to offer opinions and debate ideas, they will be more likely to commit to decisions.
- Hold One Another Accountable
When everyone is committed to a clear plan of action, they will be more willing to hold one another accountable.
- Focus on Achieving Collective Results
The ultimate goal of building greater trust, conflict, commitment, and accountability is one thing: the achievement of results.
