Culture is often used to describe creating a positive work environment. But how is a good culture developed? Is employee engagement and appreciation enough? A leader has to take risks and apply creative ways to focus on morale, retention, and attraction of employees. Engaging employees to help management develop the foundation of a positive culture through a team-building exercise provides instant buy-in. Simply, the employees defined a culture they would like for management, and the speaker guided them to create the foundation. The benefit of the foundation exercise is that participants will leave with ideas that will spark creative thinking, employee engagement, and workforce development.
