Culture Shaping

Senn Delaney

Senn Delaney, the global leader in new cultural change management service, became a Heidrick & Struggles company in 2013, providing an important new service offering to complement senior-level Executive Search and Leadership Consulting services. Founded in 1978, we have focused exclusively on inspiring leaders to create thriving organizational cultures to improve spirit and performance.

We have worked with thousands of companies, including hundreds of Fortune 500 and Global 1000 organizations, to shape their organizational cultures to deliver measurably better results. Our comprehensive, insight-based methodology engages leadership at all levels of an organization to create measurable, sustainable cultural change and improved performance.

We work with the CEO and senior team to create a comprehensive, culture-shaping program customized for each organization’s needs. CEOs seek our guidance to create thriving organizational cultures in a variety of business situations, including:

  • Aligning executive teams when there are new leaders and/or new roles
  • Integrating cultures following mergers and acquisitions
  • Shaping the culture to support new strategies and structure
  • Helping minimize cultural barriers to change when implementing major, organizational systems or processes
  • Creating greater organizational agility to meet the challenges of a changing marketplace

Cultures happen by either default or design. An organization's culture plays a significant role in its ability to successfully execute strategic plans. We know that CEOs who treat culture as a key business strategy and intentionally focus on creating a thriving culture that aligns people to the mission, vision and values create a strong competitive advantage.

Senn Delaney provides a proprietary, proven and scalable culture-shaping process in more than 50 countries and 7 languages. To learn more about Senn Delaney and our proven culture-shaping approach, visit us at
