As a non-profit leader, you are focused on achieving your mission. One of the most effective ways to accomplish that is by setting your employees up for success by strengthening your organization’s culture.
Your people are already inspired by your mission and driven by their desire to make a difference. An inclusive, high-performing culture will strengthen their engagement to help your organization reach its potential. You will find that culture development provides a natural opportunity to engage and align your board, donors, and volunteers as well.
We pioneered and perfected the tools for assessing and interpreting organizational values, and for using that data to forge a targeted, measurable path towards optimal culture. Barrett Analytics are fully customizable to your specific mission and goals.
Working with your in-house culture lead, or with the guidance of a Barrett Certified Consultant, here’s what you can expect from the process:
You will get a clear picture of what your employees truly care about, enabling you to keep your employees passionately engaged and performing at their best.
The assessment flags the gaps between your current and optimal culture, highlighting any dysfunction in your organization with our Cultural Entropy® score.
The data is the basis for defining measurable goals and an actionable roadmap to a higher-performance culture.
Barrett Leadership Development magnifies the effectiveness of leaders by helping them recognize their true cultural impact and embrace an authentic leadership style.
We work with individual leaders and leadership teams to help them cultivate the skills to:
Work more effectively with their colleagues
Better utilize the “soft skills” necessary to create a truly fulfilling and productive workplace
Engage with integrity and authenticity – especially relevant in a mission-driven workplace
Find greater satisfaction, meaning, and connection in their work
We begin by connecting you with a carefully chosen Barrett Certified Consultant. They will create a program built around your needs and goals, and serve as your trusted guide throughout the process.
Many non-profits have borrowed a successful strategy from the for-profit world by cultivating an in-house culture specialist. We offer extensive training resources to help you enhance your organization’s internal cultural expertise.
Doing more with less is a non-profit mantra. Turns out that building a high-performing, values-driven culture is a cost-effective way to do more with resources you already have.
Our approach to culture development begins with a survey of the genuine values motivating your team and other stakeholders, without preconceived assumptions. This step ensures that results of the process represent the true employee experience and are 100% relevant to your organization’s specific circumstances.
We hear the same results reported again and again: Employees feel more supported, engaged, and able to bring their “whole selves” to work – unleashing the passion and commitment that drew them to your mission in the first place.
One of the many advantages of optimizing your culture is simply witnessing everyone in your organization embark on a journey towards truly thriving. Tapping into that core energy is one of the most rewarding ways to “do more with less.”
