Many people attribute the above quote to Peter Drucker but that’s not a certainty. We’ve also seen culture eats strategy for lunch. We’ve seen culture beats strategy. Culture trumps strategy.
Regardless of who said what, it is a certainty that corporate culture is key to organizational success. That’s why ProCulture is so passionate about helping companies develop a healthy corporate culture.
What is culture? There are many definitions of corporate culture. PCC defines culture as “the working environment that is a result of many interconnected pieces including policies, processes, benefits, written and unwritten rules, communications, employee attitudes, and, the biggest culture driver of them all, corporate values. An easier way to think of culture is this:
Corporate culture is simply the way people think and act.
After measuring key aspects of your culture, PCC will partner with your organization to develop and implement a program that attacks your culture weak points. Our goal is to help build a values-based culture that allows employees to do their best work.
Let’s explore culture! We are happy to share with you what we’ve learned about culture over the years. If we end up working together, fantastic! If nothing else, we can at least learn from each other. It costs you nothing to talk so contact PCC today to schedule a culture discussion.
Invite PCC to facilitate a culture discussion with corporate leadership, human resources, or other key employees. PCC can deliver a one-hour presentation that reviews values and culture or spend an entire day exploring how your organization can use culture to improve organizational performance.
Culture Score A unique assessment tool, Culture Score measures seven beliefs and seven behaviors:
Beliefs Behaviors Direction & Purpose Adaptability Supervisor Support Communication Learning & Growth Trust Team Performance Leadership Accountability Process Recognition & Rewards Serving Customer Orientation Talent
Using an online survey that takes just 15 minutes to complete, PCC reports the results in a live, in-person presentation along with written reports.
From there, PCC can help develop plans to address some of the “opportunities” uncovered by the assessment.

Values – Real or Aspirational?
While there are many parts that combine to build your culture, your corporate values are the biggest driver of a healthy culture.
ProCulture can help with your values using three strategies:
We will work with you to develop new or update current corporate values.
If you’re happy with your values but don’t have the associated behaviors, PCC can help define the actions that allow your employees to live their values daily.
Not sure all of your values are lived today? PCC will conduct a series of employee focus groups to determine which values are real and which are aspirational. We can then offer ideas of what types of development programs can be used to make your values “come alive.”
