"Too many organisations don't care how their people are or should be feeling at work. Yet studies show emotional culture influences employee satisfaction, motivation, connection, engagement, burnout, teamwork and even 'hard measures' such as financial performance and absenteeism."
Harvard Business Review

When it comes to organisational culture, most organisations focus on values and behaviour - important, but only one part of the culture puzzle. When we  ignore how people feel at work, we miss a vital part of what makes them tick - how they feel about something.

The Emotional Culture Deck is an insanely simple card game that gets people talking at a human level. It flips the conversations leaders and people can have around culture, performance, employee experiences and wellbeing. It gives leaders a simple, proven, structured, innovative way to emotionally connect with their teams. It gives people the language they need to make that happen.

Learning outcomes and content for this workshop are dependent on the purpose and organisational outcomes you seek.

"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
