Professional Services Culture Circuit
Firms are made up of professional people…who gain qualifications from industry training bodies…and who join industry associations. Each group has its own culture and your people adopt values and behaviours from each.
By the time people join your firm, they have already formed opinions and attitudes that shape their behaviour. Similarly, each firm or association they belong to in their career, adds to the evolutionary process that shapes what kind of partner or leader they will become.
As culture impacts directly on firm performance and profitability, it's important to know the values of other players in your Culture Circuit. To change your firm's behaviours, you may need to get them to change theirs too.
The Culture Circuit is a growthcurv proprietary framework. We show you how to use it to capture market share, renew growth, improve service quality and achieve your targets.
'Pamela's great strengths are her energy and enthusiasm. She relates well to people and has great personal charm. When added to her experience and commitment to high standards of service, these personal skills make for a very talented individual with an ability to succeed in any endeavour and market.'
'I hired Pamela to help us formulate a new strategy to take us forward. Her broad experience was evidenced by her quick grasp of our business operations and issues. I asked her to return a few years later to investigate the ‘stress fractures’ that had arisen due to the growth; she again provided solutions that allowed us to move forward with sure footing.'
