Quantifying and managing culture is critical for bringing a Family Business’s values “to life,” supporting the implementation of its strategies, and promoting adaptation, goal attainment, a winning performance and sustainability.

Culture has a greater impact on success and longevity than talent does

Behavioural norms have a significant impact on a family business’s ability to solve problems, adapt to change, and perform effectively at the top level.

At the organisational level, research shows a relationship between the right culture and outcomes including a winning performance, increased net profits, employee engagement, safety and reliability, successful merger integration, creativity, adaptability, and customer satisfaction.

Creating a winning culture in a Family Business

We are experts in creating winning cultures in family businesses. We understand how Family Businesses work, but we also understand about the importance of culture in such an organisation as a Family Business.

An effective culture increases productivity, effectiveness, efficiency and profits

What we do

  • We will run regular culture surveys on your family business using data and metrics provided by a statistically reliable and valid assessment.
  • We provide your family business with visual profiling of your operating and ideal cultures in terms of the behaviours that staff members believe are required to “fit in and meet expectations.”
