company Leonardo did a remote #VerbYourValuesExpress
workshop this morning!
We identified active values for the engineering department, led by #CTO
Jason MacDonald. The workshop was suggested by Director of #Engineering
Lakshmi Baskaran, to help them direct their culture to achieve more a collaborative, trusting, uplifting, creative environment. Lakshmi had been following #SayThingsBetter
on LinkedIn and had seen her run a workshop at the @dypbto
conference in #Toronto
The verbs selected were To #Engage
, To #Trust
, and To #Celebrate
A full-scale #VerbYourValues
workshop includes #CommunicationMapping
, which identifies Communication Touchpoints and Events where values can be actively and intentionally integrated across a whole company or department.
This board is an example of one touchpoint: the #Management #Lifecycle
. This incorporates what both #CommunicationPartners
will need from each other to be able to Engage, Trust, and Celebrate each other, and asks them both to intentionally commit to incorporating these active values in their communication around those needs. This creates the culture they need to be comfortably ahead of the #innovation
curve, and coming to work in a place that feels like home for them and their ideas.
