Increase your cultural advantage
The business environment is constantly changing and although you can't control all the variables impacting your organisation, you can choose how you want to work.
Our values-driven approach to culture assessment and development is a collaborative way to connect your people and tap into their passion, purpose and productivity.
Get it right and employee engagement goes up, and with it a sense of belonging and commitment. Attrition falls and attracting talent gets easier, creating positive energy that impacts every metric from customer satisfaction to profitability.
Peak Performance can help you to understand the workplace culture you have today and to intentionally shape the culture you need for tomorrow. We will show you how to measure and manage your organisation's cultural health to increase your cultural advantage.
A measurable pathway to strengthen your workplace culture
As a leader, you live by business metrics like customer satisfaction, employee engagement and the all-important financials. Peak Performance reveals the cultural drivers behind those business metrics - so you can make better decisions and deliver better outcomes for all your stakeholders.
As culture impacts everything inside your organisation, you have two choices.
You can prioritise and proactively influence your workplace culture, or leave it to chance and risk it evolving in ways that negatively impact your people, performance and results.
If you prefer to be proactive, Peak Performance will help you to strengthen your workplace culture so you're ready to respond to a rapidly changing world.
Work towards your optimal culture
Our robust methodology is designed to assess, unpack and then develop your organisational culture as a key driver for success.
Each phase - launch, analyse, explore, share, shape and develop - will help you to:
understand what people value most so you know how best to motivate them and keep them passionately engaged and performing at their best
diagnose what's working and what's not in your current culture so you can reinforce the strengths and address any underlying cultural issues
discover a clear path forward so you can define measurable goals and a plan of action
This collaborative and creative process enables you to build a measurable path towards your optimal culture - one that's good for your people and the bottom line.
Tools to bridge the gap
At the heart of the Peak Performance culture survey process is the Barrett Model from Barrett Values Centre.
Created by Richard Barrett and recently updated to reflect insights gained over more than two decades, the Barrett Model is used by thousands of organisations across the globe. The model identifies the seven areas of human motivation, ranging from survival and viability at one end, to contribution and social responsibility at the other.
The Barrett Model offers a means of creating more supportive and productive relationships between employees, leaders and other stakeholders and a deeper alignment of purpose across your organisation.

See your culture from a risk perspective
Your organisation can have best-practice risk controls in place however it is your culture that ultimately influences the decisions your people make and the actions they take.
Each organisation's risk culture is a subset of their overall culture. The values and behaviours of leaders and staff underpin the culture and manifest in 'how we do things around here'.
When it comes to risk, leaders can feel that their culture is on the right path but they need evidence to understand the strengths and challenges in their risk culture. For example, the voice of dissent or concern can be lost without the right culture to support open, honest and accountable feedback.
That is why it is important to complement risk reviews that examine risk management frameworks, policies and procedures with a risk culture review, and to ‘peek under the hood’ to see what is happening from a cultural viewpoint.
Talk to Peak Performance about assessing the cultural health of your organisation from a risk perspective.
Review your risk culture
The first step in reviewing your organisation's risk culture is an online survey, called the Risk Culture Indicator.
The survey provides a snapshot of your people's perceived ability to identify, understand, openly discuss, escalate and act on the organisation's current and future challenges and risks.
The Risk Culture Indicator assesses three important areas – leadership, communication and accountability - to understand cultural strengths and potential issues from a risk perspective.
The Risk Culture Indicator report provides leaders with the evidence and insights to understand, design and reinforce the right risk culture for their organisation, and to deliver more effective risk management.
