Our goal is to come alongside you each step of the way, to ensure your success in developing a Connection Culture. That’s why we’ve developed a process that is designed to help you own the Connection Culture strategy. Our five-phase process, outlined below, integrates live training, online learning groups, and our proprietary assessment.

5 phases


In our keynote speeches, half-day, and one-day interactive workshops, we teach participants about leadership, teamwork, productivity, innovation and employee engagement based on our proprietary Connection Culture model. Workshops are highly participative and managers and individual contributors always take away specific actions they can use to increase connection in their organizations.

In this first phase, we want to get to know you by providing a live workshop for your key leaders. Connecting in person will help us better understand your unique challenges so we can work with you to map out the Connection Culture process for your organization.


Most organizations don’t know whether their teams have a culture of control, indifference, or connection.  We provide a state-of-the-art assessment of a team’s culture, so you can develop a customized action plan to create a Connection Culture.

Gain deep insight into how strategic initiatives impact the culture of your organization, empowering you to sustain high performance.

Laser in on the culture issues that need to be addressed so you can effectively execute your strategy.

Develop a plan for each team to minimize control and indifference, and maximize connection, promoting deep engagement throughout the organization.

Get specific coaching tips on practices that drive a Connection Culture.

In this second phase, you’ll get a GPS reading on your team’s culture. We’ll help you deploy our proprietary Connection Culture Inventory, providing you actionable insights into each team’s culture.  We’ll work with you to identify your strengths and gaps, and to develop a customized Connection Culture plan.


Most organizations struggle to get everyone fully engaged and don’t know where to start.  We developed online learning groups that help you build a Connection Culture so you can break through to new levels of engagement and performance.

Our online learning groups provide a blueprint for building a Connection Culture that creates Vision, Value, and Voice for everyone in the organization.  

We believe transformational learning happens when learners feel connected and accountable to a learning community.  We’ve designed our course from the ground up to create this experience.

Learning groups blend digestible and practical content, live coaching sessions, and social engagement with peers, all of which intrinsically motivate learners.  You’ll learn alongside like-minded colleagues with diverse backgrounds and come away with insights you can put into practice right away.  Connection Culture Learning Groups will help you create deeper engagement, stronger performance, and greater fulfillment.

In this third phase, we’ll lead your internal Connection Culture coaches through our online workshop in learning groups. They’ll develop a Connection Culture mindset and gain the tools to train all your employees. Developing internal Connection Culture coaches is a key step to owning the process of becoming a Connection Culture.


To develop a true Connection Culture, your individual contributors have to see it modeled at the top, catch the vision, and carry the culture forward in their everyday work. 

In the fourth phase, we’ll help you deploy your internal Connection Culture coaches to lead your people through our online workshop in learning groups, and we'll be right there by your side. With our socially engaging learning groups, your internal coaches will champion the cause, giving your people the mindset and skills they need to promote connection throughout the entire organization.


In the fifth phase, you’ll conduct a follow-up assessment with the Connection Culture Inventory to track gains and target further Connection Culture initiatives. We’ll help you deploy the assessment, track progress against your goals, and identify the next strategic initiative.
