Building a Conscious Business Culture

“A Conscious business seeks to promote the intelligent pursuit of happiness in all its stakeholders. It produces sustainable, exceptional performance through the solidarity of its community and the dignity of each member.”
—Peter Senge

For leaders with the desire to align their business culture to a Conscious Business model, Strategic Crossroads offers both coaching and business consulting to assess and improve the aspects in your business culture that support or hinder your ability to operate consciously.

Following the completion of an organization profile and culture assessment, we work with you to create a plan utilizing Appreciative Inquiry and collaborative team processes to enhance the positive attributes of your culture and surface the inhibitors of change.

We then work together to develop a plan to improve your culture over time, including metrics, champion training, employee passion and compassion, and new communication and commitment processes to anchor your new culture into place.  One aspect of the plan is measuring what makes passion come alive in your organization – the intangibles that are so important but rarely measured in business today.

Managing Successful Change

Change is a constant. Mastering the ability to plan and successfully implement change is essential in business today due to the complex and fast changing environments in which we must operate. Strategic Crossroads recognizes the risks of stepping into change. We can work with you increase your collaboration and alignment to achieve success on your change projects.

Our unique approach begins by mapping the eco system of your change project to gain an integral understanding of your system. This eco system map is the foundation used to build a Phased Change Management Plan. The eco system map provides perspectives on change from all angles, including timing, cost, culture, employees/partners, customer impact/engagement, and risk assessment.The eco system map also assists in identifying the key leverage points, including the barriers that need to be removed or changed as well as the positive attributes in your culture important to sustain and strengthen to nurture success.
