Do you recognize the importance of culture yet struggle to make it a priority for your organization?  You are not alone. According to a 2020 survey conducted by the Human Capital Institute, the #1 challenge HR faces when leading culture initiatives is lack of support and buy-in from senior leaders.[i]   We see this problem as a self-fulfilling prophecy. The very notion that culture is HR’s responsibility ends up leading to the biggest challenge they face. While the Human Resources leader is considered the de facto owner of culture for the majority of organizations, research and exper ..read more

I am Paul Mastrangelo, a Principal Culture Strategist at CultureIQ. I want my clients to succeed, and I partner with them to build a culture among employees that improves company performance and the working environment. I see so many smart dedicated leaders act based on common thinking about talent management, but many times they are misinformed.

Why Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast
CultureIQ | Workplace Culture Blog

Every day I talk with prospects and clients who are interested in maintaining or improving their company culture. When I ask why culture matters, I often hear responses such as: Having a great culture is important to our ability to attract and retain top talent. With COVID forcing everyone to work from home, we’ve had to pay extra attention to our culture – making sure people feel connected and part of the team.  We’ve always had a family feel to our culture and it’s important to our CEO that we retain that even as we grow rapidly. While it’s encouraging to see a growing interest in cul ..read more

Measuring Progress on Culture Initiatives: Are We There Yet?

I was armed with maps (yes, paper maps as well as several map apps), a watch, and a math word problem to help my kids understand the answer to that question.  Metrics and insights, even if not fully grasped, helped to make a long trip feel shorter. It’s no wonder that this question persists when ..read more

What is a High-Performance Culture? And How Do I Create One?
CultureIQ | Workplace Culture Blog
by Ryan Cooke
2y ago
Many organizations we talk to say that they have a desire to build a “culture of high performance” or a “high performing culture” – and for good reason. McKinsey reports that organizations with higher performing cultures create a 3x return to shareholders. And, according to Cornell ILR School, a high-performance organization achieves better financial and non-financial results (e.g., customer satisfaction, employee retention, etc.) than competitors over a long period of time. Despite the pervasive desire for high performance, few organizations excel at fostering high performance. Research ..read more

I’m going to let you in on a little secret.  I have a superpower. And…so do you!  Everyone has the ability and superpower to ask questions. Questions are the gateway to information, sharing, and understanding.  As we know with the world today, things can change rapidly and without warning.

But beyond just simply asking; it is imperative to understand what types of questions you could be asking and the ‘why’ behind those questions – that is the true power of a question.  Questions Build Relationships Ther ..read more
