How well are you organized to inspire and animate your people?

We're passionate about workplace culture. In collaboration with people-centric pioneer People Ink, a new FranklinCovey partner, we provide schools and central offices the proven framework and expert guidance to create and sustain a high-performance workplace culture. Build your culture by design, not chance. - Once people-centered, we can be truly student-centered. 

Background on the Organization, Process, and Founder

Are you familiar with culture leadership or the people/values-centric organizational model? The younger generation is. They are looking for "great/best places to work" high in inclusivity, trust, pride, and camaraderie. - Empowered organizations have tremendous competitive advantage because they have tapped into levels of energy and commitment which their competitors usually have difficulty matching. 


A People or Values-Centric Workplace

Behavior is the Greatest Source of Advantage


Does a leader need to be the smartest person in the organization to achieve growth and customer satisfaction?  No. In fact, being the smartest person in the organization can actually impede growth.

A people-centric organization focuses on the individual and liberating his or her innovative power. This principle is based on a belief that people want to be creative and that an organization must provide them with a setting in which they can express their creativity.

A people-centric culture emphasizes transparency and openness, and therefore also trusts in employees. In its recruitment process, people-centric organizations place a great deal of emphasis on hiring the right people—people who can manage in a challenging environment and where there is a high level of empowerment. Many of the organization's offerings to its employees in the form of education are voluntary, and employees can decide whether to opt in. Each year, the organization removes unnecessary bureaucratic features in order to give each employee more freedom and to facilitate communication and collaboration between colleagues.

          The Built on Values® Culture                                  Leadership System

We help you create and/or sustain an environment where people are inspired by a desire for significance and encouraged to act as leaders regardless of role. Mission-driven. More specifically, we help you and your leadership team to:

  • Enlist everyone in a commitment to a shared purpose-inspired mission that speaks to them as individuals, ignites their passion, and unifies them in a meaningful endeavor.
  • Instill a deep commitment to values and a set of standards to which people at all levels can hold themselves accountable.
  • Build healthy, sustainable interdependency and connectedness among team members, students, families, and community members.
  • Create space by carefully promoting freedom from traditional constraints like hierarchy, and filling that space with carefully nurtured freedom to express oneself, experiment, and exercise leadership.

The framework helps committed leaders shed their traditional authority hierarchy in return for significantly higher levels of resilience, employee loyalty, parent satisfaction, and student achievement.
