The D.N.A project is a 12-month narrative change process that helps groups and organizations like yours build greater communal and corporate identity through the expression of story and narrative. These then become the catalyst for environments of trust and connection - the building blocks for organizational culture and advancement.
The D.N.A. Project
Designed to help your organization thrive
Did you know that...
Your organizational culture and narratives:
Serve as the foundation for organizational effectiveness and corporate cohesion (i.e. your organization’s “DNA”)?
Directly influence how your organization, and people, process information and make decisions?
Influence your organization's success, including how well you manage and transform conflicts?
Create environments of trust and connection - the building block for organizational culture and advancement?
The D.N.A. Approach
Designed to transform your organizational culture
Our approach to narrative change is based on an iterative process that includes:
Information gathering discussions with your organization’s leadership and key stakeholders to understand your organizational shared goals and values. And the people directly affected by them (employees, customers, shareholders) as well as the areas where they differ
Interviews with internal and external audiences to better understand how effectively narratives are both operationalized and communicated
Strategy discussions to discuss findings and design new or enhance your existing narratives and messaging for real-world application and with an eye toward creating a more welcoming, trusting, and relational environment
Concluding event that provides opportunities to highlight the success of the initiative and to hear individual stories as they relate to the new narrative and culture. This can also serve as a space where individuals can articulate and record personal meaning and value to the process (optional)
At the end of the D.N.A process, you will:
Have a cultural narrative and strategy that communicate
the values and mission of your organization
Be aware of and connect to your organization legacy
and story on a much deeper level
Be rooted deeply in your organization culture and
aligned with your mission and practices
Find the connections between them and the community
Have a strategy and platforms for continuous narrative
sharing and celebration
