What is a Culture of Connection and Why Should You Care?

“Culture eats strategy for breakfast.”

~Peter Drucker


Strategy is important!

But fostering a culture of connection, a community culture, is the most powerful and effective action a manager can take.

Culture is what gives an organization its competitive edge and there is no better culture than a community culture.

Lori’s programs draw participants into a deeper, more meaningful relationship with one another and with the mission, values, goals, and vision of the organization.

Create a culture of connection in your organization and maximize your competitive advantage.


Creating a Culture of Connection

In her fully-customized programs, Lori facilitates roundtable conversations that reveal and reinforce the organizational culture, foster meaningful connections and provide tools for conflict resolution.

In addition to fostering a culture of connection, she addresses your specific organizational issues and goals.

Finally, she empowers leaders in the organization by providing tools and guidance to sustain the work begun during the program.

This ensures a happy, productive and collaborative, culture in the work environment going forward.

This is feedback from a 45-minute talk Lori gave to the Diabetes Canada Professional Section:

“Lori presented on community to our Professional Section Chapter.  It opened our eyes to a deeper connection we may be missing in our Chapter that is possible with commitment to a process of community building with Lori’s help. Fantastic presenter.  Lori’s enthusiasm for community building is palpable.  The picture she paints in your mind is so real you can almost reach out and grab it, taste it and smell it.  A pleasant escape.”

“Your picture of what a community is like can be experienced with all senses as I experienced your presentation.  You had my attention from beginning to end!  It’s exciting to open my mind to the possibility of making community a reality in my life.  It is like a hidden unknown gem that you bring so clearly to life in every way.  Very intriguing talk that inspires me to learn, grow, and to be a community builder in my own life and to teach those around me how to do the same.”

One of her Research & Development projects involves community building with a group of fourteen participants online every second week for 18 weeks.  After the third session, the supervisor of the group (who also attends) sent this email:

I wanted to reach out as I’ve had the opportunity to touch base with a few members of our team, since we chatted on Tuesday.  First off – I want to share just how much I truly enjoyed our session.  I am in awe of your facilitation skills and how you ‘just’ seem to create community around you.  I both envy, and relate, to your passion of bringing people together.

It seems I’m not alone in enjoying this time.  I wanted to be sure I shared that with you as I know you are in this for your own development as well.

I spent much of last evening reading your book, but now feel like I’m cheating if I go any further!

Looking forward to next time!
