building cultural alignment
august 2019

Join us on Tuesday the 20th of August when Helen will give a presentation on building cultural alignment in our organisations, with the Change Management Institute.

Helen says, “Cultural alignment is the hardest but most powerful thing for organisations to develop. Culture resides in teams. Organisational alignment is based on building a network of communication and consistency across those teams.”

On Completion and Renewal

As we come to the chaotic end of the year, when everything has to be done, it becomes too easy to lose sight of the big picture. When we are caught up in the minutiae everything becomes urgent. We lose sight of what we have achieved and think only of what is still to be done.



Frameworks’ senior consultant, Claudia Butler, is now a certified Map of Meaning practitioner. She is only one of 19 practitioners worldwide, and one of six in Australia.

The Map of Meaning is a powerful research based framework that can be used by individuals, teams and organisations to create successful workplaces. It brings onto one simple diagram all the dimensions of intrinsic motivation. It gives a lens through which we get a sense of understanding and control. The Map helps us to stay inspired, whilst dealing with whatever reality we are facing. It reminds us of what matters most, releases our own wisdom and leads to practical steps.

Claudia is specialised to use the Map in the context of planning the future, managing diversity and resolving conflict.

This fun, practical and inspiring program focuses on the skills and strategies that make great managers, including how to create an engaging and productive workplace, manage underperformance and have those difficult conversations.


What is conflict doing to your workplace?

If we allow unresolved issues to fester we develop a toxic relationship culture. This becomes a perfect breeding ground for bullying behaviours. How can we avoid being sucked into such an unhealthy dynamic?

Frameworks has come a long way since its inception in 2003 and changed even more in the past few years since we set up an office in town.
