We all want to believe our organization’s desired purpose matches what we’re actually achieving. But…is that the case? Join me as I share a simple activity I learned from my mentors and friends, Drs. Derek and Laura Cabrera. The Cabreras describe the activity of recasting your organizational purpose to gain insights into where systems changes are warranted within your organization in their book, FLOCK NOT CLOCK: DESIGN, ALIGN, and LEAD to ACHIEVE YOUR VISION.
Central Susquehanna Opportunities, Inc., (CSO) recently crafted a new Vision-Mission. They were seeking ways to ensure staff readiness to begin their new organizational journey and kick off an effort to build a new customer service mindset.
They recognized that in order to become a transformative organization, they needed to go outside the box, rethink professional development and training and dive deeply into how organizational culture is built. They started by getting to know themselves and others. Using the Talent Insights, Behaviors & Driving Forces assessments and MYNDDSET Group Seminars, each member of the team gained an awareness of their natural behaviors, adaptive behaviors and the attitudes that lead to their behaviors. Across their 70 member team, they have a common language to discuss interpersonal and team relationships. During the seminar, they practiced interacting with others who’s natural behavior is different than their own. By learning how to interact with others with an understanding of their needs, they developed a new level of empathy for their fellow coworkers.
Thank you to Christine Hornberger for sharing her thoughts on the value of this experience. I look forward to witnessing their continued transformation. Congratulations CSO.

In this MYNDDCAST Moment, I discuss how blends of organizational culture and environment attract different customers. I share a story of how a lakeside resort shifted its customer base over time by not protecting culture and building environment. But, does the blend of culture and environment just impact customers? What about staff? Thanks for listening.
Do these 3 things to bring about a multitude of desired behaviors and their benefits to your organization. Many desired behaviors are emergent behaviors. This means we spend too many resources in a narrow lane seeking their improvement. Rather, we can (and must) look to core behaviors and skills that will bring about our desired behaviors. If you desire increased team creativity, collaboration or contribution, or if you seek specific improvements such as Increased Quality in Customer Service, High Impact Meetings or Increased Utilization of Time , are you focused on the proper human and organizational development?
