Build a culture 

by design

Culture Crafting

Build your unique culture - by design, rather than leaving it to default.

Bring the team together to collaborate and collectively define and design a culture that supports individual and collective success.

Forward-thinking Kiwi businesses such as Air NZ, Westpac, NZ Rugby, XERO and even Netflix are bringing their teams together to collaborate and collectively define the culture that best supports their success. By being proactive, they are building a culture by design rather than leaving it to chance.

Our Culture Workshops are transforming the way team's work together. As a major bonus, it’s fun, interactive and supports conversations that wouldn't usually take place.

Using a simple card deck, we facilitate structured face to face conversations around workplace culture and employee experience. This workshop drives the team towards developing shared commitments, behaviours and actions that will support their individual and team success.

We work through a process to define success then build a game plan with actions, behaviours and commitment that will help us reach our destination.

In the workshop we guide your people to:

Team Behavioural Profiling Workshop

Much more than a traditional “team building” session, this four hour interactive workshop is designed to help the team better understand their own behavioural tendencies and others' preferences in order to achieve real teamwork & results.

Using the DISC framework (the world's #1 behavioural assessment, taken by millions of people every year and estimated to be in use by 75% of Fortune 500 companies) we will explore this straightforward yet powerful four quadrant framework used to articulate the common ways that all human beings tend to behave and communicate.

Teams are made up of unique individuals with different behavioural and working styles. Learning about our own tendencies and others' preferences is key to achieving real teamwork and results.

This workshop is designed to:

  • Provide a common language to help your team better understand one another and work better together
  • Consider strategies to deal with conflict effectively by learning adaptive behaviours
  • Act as a springboard for conversations and develop strategies to maximise cooperation - within the team and with external customers and stakeholders
  • Increase trust and understanding between team members and build mutual respect
  • Support teams that want to experience a more harmonious workplace culture with lower levels of tension and conflict


Prior to attending the workshop everyone will be asked to complete an online assessment. This will be emailed directly to each person and takes about 20 minutes to complete. a comprehensive report will be given to each person during the workshop which will be the basis of our discussions.

The Workshop:

This session is highly interactive and fun. There will be plenty of aha! moments and laughs as we move towards defining your “rules of engagement”. These “rules of engagement” will include how to (and not to) communicate with each other, the potential value of each team member and how to get the most from each other.

DISC is a very versatile tool commonly used in the following functions:

  • Team Collaboration/Effectiveness
  • Leadership Development
  • Communication Effectiveness
  • Recruitment and Selection
  • Sales Development
  • Customer Service Training
  • Coaching
  • Engagement/Motivation
  • Conflict Resolution

"After saying how much I dislike and struggle with confrontation in the workshop I had a confrontational moment with a team member the following week. The tools I learned definitely helped me in this situation even though I was extremely uncomfortable.

Motivators CPMA


Arguably the most important (and most overlooked) aspect of human personality. The most powerful motivation comes from within — from our core values. Yet, very few people can articulate their own values or are aware that all values can be traced back to half a dozen primary motivators.
