THE UNITED WE STAND QUADRANT.

The most effective leaders here tend to take on roles of parent figure, mentor, facilitator and team builder. They help team members develop needed skills and foster good work/life balance.

COLLABORATIVE CULTURE.

A mantra in the “Collaborative” quadrant might be “engage, involve and build.” Strategies focus on forming effective and long-lasting partnerships across organizational boundaries and building human capital. Examples of collaboratively-driven companies are Harley Davidson and Zappos.

CULTURE IS A COST.
CULTURE IS A PROFIT CENTER.

Culture is a cost – office parties, vacation time and free coffee have a real price tag. But the cost of a poor culture is an average 32% decrease in operating income. Workspace should motivate people and encourage innovation and collaboration. Successful leaders view culture as a value multiplier across all facets of their business.

Team First Space For the Collective Experience.

A calm environment fosters relationship building and effective partnerships.

Management is integrated into the environment and culture. Accessibility is key to the collaborative environment.

Thinking and artifacts are put on visible display where additional input is essential to a project’s success.

Collaborative settings are wholly integrated into the workplace. Available space to brainstorm and share information are integral to the success of this model.

Group identity is part of the culture but doesn’t drive it. Individuality and ideas are respected and built upon.

Warm and comfortable colors reinforce the collaborative spirit. Feeling “at ease” encourages new thinking and ideas.
