Building an Inspiring Culture™: Action steps to increase clarity, gain buy-in, and boost accountability, so people do what's right without supervision.

The best leaders create a culture with so much buy-in that people do what’s right voluntarily, which allows leaders to look up and out to strategy and growth. Your culture combines clarity and buy-in to your organization’s common good, giving you the foundation to hire the right talent, promote innovation, and heighten performance. Building an Inspiring Culture™ gives you the tools to help your subordinates gain buy-in throughout your organization.
Attendees will be able to
  • Diagnose a culture as Complaint, Chaotic, Contingent, or Inspiring, and take steps to move it toward Inspiring.
  • Improve clarity in values and expectations so people know what to buy into.
  • Confront over values and standards, not incidents.
  • Execute critical behaviors that improve buy-in, such as disagreeing agreeably.
  • Implement proactive accountability to increase performance and reduce the number of uncomfortable conversations and disputes you must address.
