The Culture and Leadership Program

Values-based leadership, a thriving workplace, and a trusted organization

A 12-month organization-specific leadership development and culture change program

Cultural health is business critical

Today, delivering excellent products and services is crucial but insufficient. To sustain trust with key stakeholders, organizations must prioritize integrity, align decisions with their values, and cultivate a workplace culture that both delivers results and supports employee thriving.

This is a daunting task. Despite noble aspirations, ambitious HR initiatives, and compliance programs, managers and executives are often ill-equipped to nurture cultural health, drive behavioral change, or make values-based decisions under pressure.

The negative consequences can be tremendous.

When leaders grow, everyone wins

Through extensive research and experience, we've discovered that cultural health, like physical health, isn't achieved through short-term efforts but rather through consistent habits.

When leaders adopt vital culture-building habits and practices, they are equipped to build trust, make better decisions, and intentionally cultivate a culture where employees can thrive and successfully deliver on the mission.

Stop teaching. Start training.

The Culture and Leadership Program provides a tailored, scalable, time-effective, high-impact journey to develop self-awareness and vital culture-building habits and skills over 12-18 months.

Rather than merely teaching leaders to be more responsible, it delivers hands-on training through immersive personal reflection, actionable leadership exercises, peer learning, and tailored team engagement aligned with your specific context and goals.

Leaders making small but vital changes to their repeated actions and the signals they send will enable significant culture change.

Based on extensive research and practical insights

The Culture and Leadership Program is based on our work with hundreds of leaders in organizations of all sizes and Tobias Sturesson’s (Heart Management’s co-founder) groundbreaking book, 'You Can Culture' (launching October 2024).

Endorsed by leading academics and executives alike, 'You Can Culture' is an actionable guide to four vital culture-building leadership habits and twelve related practices, told through the lens of Tobias Sturesson’s unique story, the examples of numerous leaders, and insights from renowned culture experts.
