Why a values-driven approach for business?
The culture of your organisation is either your biggest asset or your biggest liability. Together with your vision, your values are the pillars of the culture of your organisation. Your values let everyone know what is important and provide guidance in making daily decisions.
Strong vibrant cultures that are vision-guided and values-driven create high levels of performance because they attract and keep talented people and they inspire employees to go the extra mile. A strong positive culture creates internal cohesion and enhances the organisation’s capacity for collective action by building trust.
Your organisation’s culture is a liability when it displays high levels of cultural entropy: when limiting behaviours such as blame, bureaucracy, internal competition and manipulation inhibit the smooth functioning of the organisation. The benefits of measuring and managing the business through a values-driven approach is that values resonate with people at a deeper level; their basic “hygiene” needs of safety, respect and recognition are met, which ignites the energy for growth and the capacity to step into their greater Purpose.
Whole Systems Change Model

For corporate culture assessments, we choose the appropriate diagnostic tool to identify and assess the client’s values, behaviours and current and desired culture.
One of the key tools for measuring Values is the Seven Levels of Organisational Consciousness (Barrett Values Centre, USA). To learn about this tool, you can take a free Personal Values Assessment by clicking here. Corporate Evolution is the only Trainer of CTT in Western Australia.
Other tools include the Leadership Circle Profile useful for measuring a Leader’s Creative Competencies and Reactive Tendencies, and tools from Human Synergistics such as the Organisational Culture Inventory and LSI Circumplex.
Instead of the traditional problem solving approach identifying “what is wrong” with an organisation, AI takes the approach, “what is right” with an organisation and, through dialogue and sharing of peak experiences and dreams, the participants co-create a vision and new initiatives based on the strengths, passion and collective wisdom of its people.
Because of the power of AI in engaging multiple stakeholders and creating a cultural shift for a team or organisation, an AI approach is used in most aspects of Corporate Evolution’s programs. Distinct AI Projects include:
