This assessment is aimed at determining the soul and culture of an organisation – existing and desired, and the results are a reading of what gaps may be fruitfully closed. Can Love be a part of your Culture? Research now clearly shows that the neglected human side of business needs addressing if we are to realise potential, purpose, high performance. There are sound ways and means of introducing compassionate love to improve the way we interact with communities, the environment, customers, suppliers and employees. Compassion also equates to influence and leader – charisma according to recent research. ‘Love’ encompasses a range of other values and virtues.
This survey probes being as well as doing, motives, beliefs, attitudes and behaviours. Clients requiring a deep dive into their overt and covert cultural indicators sometimes choose to survey What is the Spirit of your Workplace, Cohesive Workplaces and Escaping Psychic Prisons as a survey – set. Strength and Room-for-Improvement clusters fall out. As does more clarity on organisational purpose, shared values and virtues, alternative cultural metaphors and the extent to which members ‘see through each other’ or ‘see each other through’.
The survey covers interpersonal dynamics, relationships, communicating, motivational dynamics, trust and respect factors, silos, and a range of values and behavioural indicators that seldom belong to the organisation’s formally espoused values – that make (or prevent) this community gel.
