Is Your Company Culturally Fit?

Meet Maura Barclay

Culture Fitness Consultant

I’ve seen firsthand the unnecessary consequences that come from a culturally misaligned organization–constant churn, seemingly endless time, energy and money spent on recruiting, loss of productivity and avoidable lawsuits.

I’ve also witnessed the agility, productivity and passion that comes from companies whose senior leaders have committed themselves to be front and center, applying the mission and core values every day, leading the charge on purpose. 

It’s one thing to talk about building a better culture — and another to actually create it.

That’s where I can help.

My Philosophy

Companies that are devoted to a culture of psychological safety and BELONGING will reap the rewards of a more ENGAGED workforce who will be motivated to provide extraordinary cutomer experiences and GREAT WORK. 

A company’s culture is its currency.

Research conclusively shows us that psychological safety is the underpinning of employee engagement, customer satisfaction and ultimate financial success of any company. The higher the safety, the more welcoming the culture, the more discretionary effort goes into delighting customers. The companies that get this right will dominate their market.

The workforce is changing.  Do you want to define the future of work or react to it?

People don’t want just to earn a paycheck anymore; they want do something that matters to them. They want to have pride in their tribe — knowing that they are part of something special, where they are welcome, valued and supported. They want to work with a company where they feel respected, free to speak up and have a voice in how the culture is evolving.

A “Fit Culture” is one that prioritizes psychological safety. 

Research has shown that engaged, satisfied employees are the secret sauce to driving wellbeing, performance and profits. The single most powerful force for belonging and engagement is a CULTURE OF SAFETY where diverse voices are respected, valued and empowered to make an impact.

When employees feel free to contribute, admit errors, and question presumptions without fear of punishment, retribution or silencing, productivity and profits soar.

And the smartest CEOs know this.

My Philosophy

Tough Love: To put it bluntly — An ounce of CEO modeling is worth a pound of HR policy.

If the top brass aren’t visible, living and breathing the company’s core values every day, they can expect that no one else will.

What’s being communicated at the top will impact the ability to sustain performance, attract and retain top talent and ultimately, ensure profits.
