Do you know what kind of workplace culture you have?
A few tools we use to discover it, together.
The Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI)
The Organizational Cultural Assessment Instrument (OCAI) is a psychometric tool developed by Cameron and Quinn (2006). Its purpose is to help organizations identify their current and preferred culture. Through the use of a simple survey, participants identify their perceptions of both existing culture and their desired future culture. Organizations can then utilize these results to assess both the current cultural state and also to identify gaps between current and desired futures.
The Attentional & Interpersonal Style (TAIS) Inventory
The Attentional & Interpersonal Style (TAIS) inventory, developed by Sports Psychologist Dr. Robert Nideffer is a 144-item, self-report questionnaire that measures twenty different concentration skills, personal and interpersonal attributes.
TAIS is used worldwide to measure the attentional and interpersonal skills of high level performers in sports, business, sales, and the military, building a highly individualized or situation-specific program to develop performance skills. TAIS anticipates how a person will perform under pressure, and determine the specific steps that will be most helpful in overcoming any identified problem.
TAIS differs from other inventories because, rather than labeling specific behaviors as good or bad, TAIS scores are interpreted in the context of performance demands in competitive business and sporting environments.
VIA Character Strengths
The Values in Action (VIA) Survey of Character Strengths is a 240-item, self-report questionnaire with face validity intended for use with adults.The measure uses 5-point Likert-style items to measure the degree to which respondents endorse items reflecting the 24 strengths of character that comprise the VIA Classification. The survey takes about 25 minutes to complete, although there is no time limit.
