6 Wabash Associates, LLC Wabash Associates, LLC Climate “The way things are around here.” Climate is perceptual: What people sense and perceive. Through perceptions we form an understanding of “how things are” (present) or “how things have been” (past) around here. Climate includes members’ perceptions of systems (e.g., reward systems), structures (e.g., distribution of influence), and technology (e.g., the design of their jobs). It also reflects outcomes of the culture such as engagement, teamwork, and perceived quality. “The way we are expected to do things around here.” Culture is cognitive: what people believe and know. It reflects shared values (what is important) and beliefs (how things work). It encompasses norms and expectations that influence the way members of the organization think and behave. However, norms and expectations (Current Culture) are not always in alignment with shared values (Ideal Culture). Culture Does the organization have a culture that supports talent development and sharing of talent? Culture Research and development by Robert A. Cooke, Ph.D. and J. Clayton Lafferty, Ph.D. Copyright © by Human Synergistics International. All Rights Reserved.

7 Wabash Associates, LLC Wabash Associates, LLC Which Should Leaders Focus On? “Both”  Many leaders focus exclusively on managing or changing climate.  Both climate and culture influence performance and effectiveness.  Culture tends to be a more reliable predictor of behavior and performance than climate.  Employees act on culture, and the culture is shaped and reinforced by the climate.  Climate dimensions therefore need to be driven by values to bring cultural norms into alignment with the Ideal Culture.

9 Wabash Associates, LLC Wabash Associates, LLC Three Categories of Culture Passive/Defensive Culture Aggressive/Defensive Culture Constructive Culture (High Performance)  The Organizational Culture Inventory® (OCI) is a reliable, quantitative picture of the Culture.  The Circumplex™ brings together 12 styles of thinking and behaving; clusters these into 3 general orientations.  The 120 questions in the assessment (10 for each of the 12 styles) are rated on a 5-point scale and are all behaviorally anchored.  The OCI also measures key cultural outcomes in addition to the expected behaviors:  role clarity  service quality  commitment and satisfaction  It also identifies statistical relationships between the various elements of culture and these outcomes.

11 Wabash Associates, LLC Wabash Associates, LLC OCI Circumplex— Dimension 1 Research and development by Robert A. Cooke, Ph.D. and J. Clayton Lafferty, Ph.D. Copyright © by Human Synergistics International. All Rights Reserved. Higher-Order Satisfaction Promote behaviors directed toward the fulfillment of higher-order satisfaction needs Lower-Order Security Promote behaviors directed toward the fulfillment of lower-order security needs

12 Wabash Associates, LLC Wabash Associates, LLC OCI Circumplex — Dimension 2 Research and development by Robert A. Cooke, Ph.D. and J. Clayton Lafferty, Ph.D. Copyright © by Human Synergistics International. All Rights Reserved. Concern for Task Reflect expectations for behaviors that are task-oriented Concern for People Reflect expectations for behaviors that are people-oriented

13 Wabash Associates, LLC Wabash Associates, LLC Constructive styles Constructive styles reflect a healthy balance of people and task-related concerns and promote the fulfillment of higher order needs. Styles associated with this orientation are directed toward the attainment of organizational goals through the development of people. Constructive styles account for synergy and explain why certain individuals, groups and organizations are particularly effective in terms of performance, growth and work quality. Sample behavioral questions in the survey include: I include others in decisions affecting them I give positive rewards to others I emphasize quality over quantity I pursue a standard of excellence I explore alternatives before acting Constructive (Blue) Style Research and development by Robert A. Cooke, Ph.D. and J. Clayton Lafferty, Ph.D. Copyright © by Human Synergistics International. All Rights Reserved.

14 Wabash Associates, LLC Wabash Associates, LLC Passive/Defensive (Green) Style Passive / Defensive styles Passive / Defensive styles represent an unduly strong orientation toward people as opposed to tasks, fuelled by and reinforcing individual insecurity. These styles characterize people who subordinate themselves to the organization but, in the process, end up creating stress for themselves and allowing the organization to stagnate. Passive/Defensive styles can produce a predictable and secure situation, but at the cost of learning, adaptability and ultimately survival. Sample behavioral questions in the survey include: I don’t ‘rock the boat’ I treat rules as more important than ideas I push decisions upward I switch priorities to please others I cast aside solutions that seem different or risky Research and development by Robert A. Cooke, Ph.D. and J. Clayton Lafferty, Ph.D. Copyright © by Human Synergistics International. All Rights Reserved.

15 Wabash Associates, LLC Wabash Associates, LLC Aggressive/Defensive (Red) Style Aggressive / Defensive styles Aggressive / Defensive styles emphasize tasks over people and are driven by underlying insecurities. In the extreme, these styles lead people to focus on their own needs at the expense of those of the group. Though sometimes temporarily effective, the presence of Aggressive/Defensive styles may lead to stress, decisions based on status rather than expertise and conflict rather than collaboration. Sample behavioral questions in the survey include: I refuse to accept criticism I question decisions made by others I stay on the offensive I persist and endure I compete rather than cooperate Research and development by Robert A.
