 Culture is a vague concept and difficult to define.  Once we define culture, we can start to have a conversation about it.  We define culture on terms of behaviors.  Behaviors on how employees treat each other, how customers are treated, and the interaction with the community.

With this definition, it is easier to see that everything an organization does, and everything the people in that organization does, impacts culture.

Our job is not to tell you what your culture should be.  Our job is to help you understand the impact of behavior on culture.

We help you define the desired culture that will support and advance your unique business and situation.  Then, we help you put tools in place to bring you to that desired culture. 

This includes everything from leadership interactions with employees, the policies a practices put in place, to things that are allowed to occur.
