Crenshaw's proprietary culture assessment, initiating culture change strategies for leaders, teams, and organizations.

A healthy culture serves as a powerful force multiplier, significantly accelerating a new executive's path to full productivity and enhancing overall organizational or team effectiveness for superior business outcomes. Historically, culture has been perceived as a nebulous and challenging factor, often present yet difficult to define. However, the contemporary landscape has evolved. With the emergence of a hybrid, more flexible workforce, flatter organizational structures, increased diversity, and digital growth drivers, there's a growing need to measure culture as a leading indicator of employee engagement and execution performance. The paradigm has shifted from an era where culture merely complemented strategy to one where culture plays a pivotal role in driving execution to success. The paradigm has shifted from an era where culture eats strategy for breakfast to one where culture devours execution.
