• Organizational 'culture' is not just a buzzword or passing trend.

But 'culture' is difficult to define and often misunderstood.

What is Organizational Culture?

Culture is strategy

Whether you are a management, HR, OD, M&A or brand consultant, you need an integrated approach that helps you uncover the multiple dimensions of organizational culture.

• Are your offerings in sync with the demands of new generations?
• Are you equipped to help clients respond to the transparency created by online reviews and social media?
Do you have a solution to measure culture and lead meaningful change?

Welcome to CultureTalk

The CultureTalk Survey System offers a simple, story-based framework for measuring organizational culture and translating it into a strategic asset that can be designed, shifted, operationalized and led.

Turn ‘culture’ into a strategic business lever that moves teams forward.

Our Certified Partners are pioneers, guiding organizations into the future of work and what’s possible when cultures, leaders, teams, and brands are aligned for extraordinary outcomes.

A mind-shifting experience that's been a game changer for my business.

A Two-Survey System that Pulls the Pieces Together

An Organizational Culture Survey

Measure underlying beliefs and behaviors. Survey an entire team or a representative sample. Use demographic questions to customize your report, comparing groups of employees.

An Individual Personality Assessment

Measure personal values and perceptions. Everyone gets their own personal report; results are compiled for managers. Build awareness and enhance communication, collaboration, conflict resolution and growth.

A Human Framework

Both assessment tools present results through universal storylines that are easy-to-understand and evolve.

Archetypes operate on an unconscious level, impacting our motivations and behavior. These characters are rich and colorful, but also flawed and relatable.

CultureTalk is an engine of change; it gets everyone on the same page about where the business is going.

Bob Kelleher, The Employee Engagement Group

No other tool does what CultureTalk does. It can align what’s happening inside the organization with leadership’s goals for growth.

Cindy Atlee, The Storybranding Group

Individual assessments are missing the contextual piece. You get a lot of data, but how does it fit with the organization’s goals? That’s the gap that CultureTalk fills.

Peter Boucher, Former CHRO, First Data

I've loved every bit of the programme, especially the ability to speak with people from around the world and really get the flavour of 'culture' in the global sense.

Pria Sule, People Patterns

CultureTalk allows us to measure and name existing cultural patterns, detailing specific behaviors that are helpful or limiting.

Claudette Rowley, Cultural Brilliance

Culture is complex.

As a consultant, you have a unique perspective on a client’s challenges. You can see ‘nothing is going to change’ unless you address underlying beliefs and behaviors on all sides.

To build a culture that thrives, you need an integrated approach.

CultureTalk allows you to quickly:
• Understand your client’s strengths, opportunities, and where you can help them initiate a shift
• Provide in-depth insights to cultural patterns that are relatable and actionable; 
• Lead teams through a process that’s proven to evoke understanding.

Merge cultures with impact.
