The best cultures drive performance
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 create a strong competitive advantage when they purposefully focus on creating a thriving culture throughout the organization that aligns people to the mission, purpose, vision, and values.
We help our clients create meaningful, measurable, and lasting culture change to improve spirit and performance through our culture shaping experts, Senn Delaney. Widely recognized as the leading international authority and successful practitioner of culture shaping, Senn Delaney became a Heidrick & Struggles company in 2013, providing an important new service offering to complement senior-level Executive Search and Leadership Consulting Services.
Culture Drives Performance
Inspiring leaders to create thriving organizational cultures to improve spirit and performance has been our sole focus since Senn Delaney was founded in 1978 by Dr. Larry Senn. 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.
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
