Emotional Culture Deck

We run workshops using the Emotional Culture Deck. It’s a simple yet powerful and flexible tool for creating new conversations about culture and leadership.

It’s used by over 200,000 people in 40 countries to create human conversations about what really matters in the workplace.

Insights and Action

These highly interactive workshops can be run face-to-face or virtually. They are designed around a question that is specific to your team or organization and the challenges and opportunities you are facing.

By the end of the workshop, you will have explored how you want and need your people to feel and not feel to be successful and identified the behaviours and actions required to support your people to get there.

The outcomes are captured on an Emotional Culture Deck canvas so you have a permanent record of the discussions and a way to track and review progress.

The Importance of Emotional Culture

Organisations that display empathy function better. Emotional culture is crucial to organisational performance. When companies identify the key drivers of their employees not only does engagement increase and morale improve, productivity and employee retention increase. As a result, bottom-line profits go up (Barsade and O’Neil, 2016).

But there is a significant communication, understanding, and empathy gap in many workplaces.   Most organisations and leaders underestimate the influence emotion has on their culture and leadership. The emotional culture of an organisation influences employee satisfaction, burnout, teamwork, and even hard measures such as financial performance and absenteeism. But organisations (and leaders) don’t talk about emotion because it’s difficult and considered soft. Or they don’t have the skills to leverage emotion.

The Emotional Culture Deck offers a deceptively simple card-based tool for structured conversations about workplace culture and experience.  Used by 200,000 leaders in over 40 countries. It is a research-backed approach and endorsed by KPMG, IBM, St John, Fisher & Paykel, Xero, New Zealand Rugby, Panasonic and IAG amongst many others

Let’s spark meaningful face-to-face human conversations about the things that really matter to each of us and the way we work together.
