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.

 

Why These Tests Matter


What it means to Transform Organizational Climate

We assess and diagnose your organization’s internal context or specific perceptions:

(a) the internal circumstances under which change occurs (climate of change)

(b) how your organization deals with change and

(c) Your  level of readiness for change once your whole team understands the process

We utilize the Organizational Change Questionnaire - Climate of Change, Processes, and Readiness (OCQ - C, P, R) a self-report battery that gauges the internal context or climate of change, the process factors of change, and readiness for change.

Note: It’s possible that only a small part of your organization needs this kind of focused attention on climate and culture change. That’s OK. We’ll work to target this one are of your organization (and if we do our job right you’ll likely notice a spillover effect of this positive culture to other departments of your organization).

Inspiring Resilience, Character Strengths and Flourishing

We integrate resilience, character strengths and  flourishing strategies into organizational change processes.

We utilize the VIA Survey of Character Strengths, providing a wealth of information to help people discover their best qualities for developing a resilient mindset, fulfilling their greatest potential and flourishing in life.

Transforming Organizational Culture

We assess your organization’s culture to understand the strengths and potential for change, how your organization is the same as and different from other similar organizations, how its elements are aligned with one another, and in what ways change might be initiated.

We utilize the Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI) to assess organizational culture and measure where your organization is and where you want to be. The OCAI is part of a systematic process to specify what the measures of culture mean in terms of action to help formulate an action agenda.
