Episode 221: Helping Organizations with People and Culture Strategies—with Maheen Shafiabady
No matter how fabulous you are as a consultant, organizations and companies won’t get results easily or at all unless their people and cultures are aligned with the results they’re trying to achieve.
In this Craft of Consulting Podcast episode, I interview Maheen Shafiabady who shares strategies for helping her clients get their people and cultures in sync with what they are working toward.
Humans and the cultures they create make or break outcomes. In this episode, we talk about:
Understanding that humans thrive when they co-create and align to support organizations progress toward and achieving their goals
Attending to how people you’re working with work together
Engaging a three-component process to help clients get to people-first cultures
Using dialogue as an essential consulting tool
Creating the conditions for sustainable collaboration and delivery that also provides mental health and wellbeing
Fostering cross-functional collaboration
Doing a deep discovery process with the client
Instilling a mindset of allowing things to emerge as we navigate together
