Culture Shaping

Thriving, adaptive cultures accelerate performance and effect transformative change.

Why culture matters more than ever

Powered by Senn Delaney, our exclusive focus on culture, more than 40 years of experience, our approach, and the results our clients experience set us apart from other management consulting firms. Our unique distinctive competence is creating deep and lasting change in leaders, teams and organizations. Our strength is our proven track record of successfully aligning senior teams and engaging entire organizations to create thriving, high-performance cultures.

Globally scalable, repeatable and measurable, our proprietary process is different than traditional change management or leadership development approaches that companies often label culture change. We use an insight-based approach to “unfreeze” old habits, shift mind-sets and connect leaders to healthy, high-performance behaviors. We do this using proprietary team-based “insight” learning leadership workshops customized for clients and reinforced through coaching, and a host of other ways to make it lasting and results producing.

We have all of the capabilities needed to partner with companies on a comprehensive culture-shaping program customized to their needs. We have worked in more than 50 countries around the world and are able to deliver our work in ten languages.

Recent client impact includes a 3X increase in Hiring Success at Top Universities for a Professional Services Firm, 45% increase in revenues at a Financial Services Firm, and a 93% employee satisfaction at a Large Hospital system.

Our Approach

How we shift an organization's culture.

  • The journey design is tailored to your specific requirements and always guided by the four principles, tried and tested over many years to provide you with the desired culture.
  • The road to success begins with purposeful authentic leadership, the leadership team explicitly owning and living the change they want in others.
  • The foundation for broad engagement and systemic alignment is set by the culture roadmap and is delivered at pace whilst providing in-house capability to ensure sustainable change.
  • Program governance and business metrics ensure the principles remain core to implementation.
