“LSA’s comprehensive analysis of our current culture vis-à-vis our key strategic growth objectives using the Denison Organizational Culture Survey enabled us to take practical actions and make relevant changes to our culture.

Thank you for helping us to align our strategy and our culture to drive growth.”

The Denison Organizational Culture Survey is rooted in research linking organizational culture and leadership to bottom-line business performance. The cultural diagnostic technology is supported by a world-class electronic delivery system.

The Denison Organizational Culture Survey and Denison Leadership Development Survey were developed by Daniel R. Denison, Ph.D. and William S. Neale, M.A., M.L.I.R.

The surveys and model are based on over 20 years of research by Dr. Denison on the link between organization culture and bottom-line performance measures such as ROI, ROA, Sales Growth, Quality, and Employee Satisfaction.

The Denison Model is made up of four culture traits.  All are validated and benchmarked items.

  1. Mission: Does the company know where it is going?
  2. Consistency: Can the company execute and create leverage?
  3. Involvement: Are people aligned and engaged?
  4. Adaptability: Is the company listening to the external marketplace?

Additionally Available Assessment Components with Validated and Benchmarked Items

  • Employee Engagement
    Understand your employees’ current engagement and how to shape your culture to increase their engagement into the future.
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)
    How effectively your organization fosters diversity and inclusion to make certain that all types of people are included in a supportive work environment.
  • Organizational Innovation
    Assess the values and behaviors that are important to facilitating innovation by measuring your capacity to generate and make productive use of new ideas.
  • Organizational Trust
    Assess your organization’s level of trust including the belief that co-workers have positive motives and intentions, that others can be relied upon, and that the organization acts with honesty and integrity.
  • Risk Management
    Measures the effectiveness of organizational risk management practices using employee perceptions of key proactive and reactive aspects of risk management.
  • Safety Management
    Measures how your organization supports safe behaviors and work practices while providing additional insight into other centrally-related components of safety management.

Unlike traditional employee engagement assessments, corporate culture surveys, or climate surveys, the Denison Organizational Culture Survey looks at the culture of an organization as a whole and ties culture to bottom-line performance measures.

Repeated use of Corporate Culture Surveys provide a measure of the organization’s progress toward achieving a high-performance culture with optimum overall performance.

The Denison Leadership Development Survey is a 360 degree assessment designed to benchmark an individual’s leadership and management skills with leaders in other organizations.

The assessment allows leaders to link leadership development and organizational culture to tangible bottom-line performance measures.

Together, these research-based, user-friendly surveys allow organizations to align culture and leadership, diagnose specific areas of strength and weakness, and build accountability into the development process – all helping you reach your goal of a high-performing organization.

The LSA customized Organizational Alignment Survey gave us a comprehensive view of how our employees experience our culture, talent, and strategy.

Equally important, the survey and implementation process goes well beyond the typical engagement survey.

The systemic approach provided us with a great forum to discuss the strengths and opportunities in our organization, and then to quickly get focused on the key actions critical to executing our business and people strategies.

We looked to LSA Global as a consulting partner to help us explore innovative and scholarly approaches to promote employee engagement and sustain the unique culture we’ve built over the last decade.  LSA helped us perpetuate coaching as a discipline across the organization by integrating our core values, goal setting, and performance management.

Originally, we launched a RFP to partner with a sales training provider to improve the sales skills of our global distributor network.

LSA Global challenged our thinking by suggesting we focus on the systemic strategy, culture, and talent factors that create sales success before we invested in the more symptomatic needs of sales skills and knowledge.

LSA Global identified the critical strategic actions to improve overall sales performance and then designed and delivered world class business sales training across the globe to help increase revenue and margin.

I’m so happy we took a more strategic approach to sales performance with LSA.  Thank you for making this fit our culture.
