INNERTHEATRE INVENTORY(ITI )What underlying values drive our behaviour?We each have a very specific outlook towards the world. This outlookis influenced by a unique inner theatre where thematic scripts shapeour interpretation of the world and how we behave in it.The ITI identifies the key themes—or Life Anchors—in our personalinner theatre, consisting of the values, beliefs and attitudes thatdrive behaviour. Using the ITI , individuals can develop greaterawareness of what is most important and meaningful to them andcreate a lifestyle more congruent with their values and belief systems.Participants rate their response to the Inventory’s 22 life anchorsand receive feedback from observers from both personal andprofessional realms.The 22 ITI life anchors:››››››››››› chievementA Aesthetics Affiliation/attachment Autonomy/independence Care Exploration/learning Food/eating Health/well-being Honour/integrity Lifestyle quality Meaning››››››››››› oneyM Order Power Pride Recognition Revenge Security Sensuality/sexuality Spirituality Status/rank Voice

How do we understand and guide organisational changeand Q )Participants’ ideas of their organisation’s culture may be very differentfrom the beliefs, values and behaviours that are actually played outwithin the organisation. It is critical to identify what those values andbeliefs are before determining the degree of change required.The OCA measures the way key cultural values are perceived andpractised in an organisational context. It covers 12 dimensions oforganisational culture that research with large numbers of seniorexecutives has shown to be the most salient.The OCA is taken anonymously and administered broadly to allmembers of the organisation. Depending on the clients’ needs and thescope of the OCA , the survey can also be deployed with a targetedgroup of people, e.g. top executives of a large multinational company.An organisation may define a maximum of two categories andcorresponding subcategories to allow a more nuanced look at the data.The 12 OCA dimensions of organisational culture:How can we structure a team that delivers much more than the sumof its parts?Effective leaders have two roles—a charismatic one and an architecturalone. In the charismatic role, leaders envision a better future andempower and energise their subordinates. In the architectural role,leaders address issues related to organisational design and control andreward systems. Both roles are necessary for effective leadership, butit is a rare leader who can fulfil both roles seamlessly. Usually, alignmentis only achieved within a leadership role constellation when it isconstructed of team members with complementary leadership styles.The LAQ explores the recurring patterns of behaviour that influencean individual’s effectiveness within teams. These patterns can becategorised as leadership archetypes which determine the way inwhich leaders deal with people and situations in an organisationalcontext. In an age of distributed leadership, the ideal leadership teamshould include people with diverse prevailing leadership archetypesto meet the leadership needs that are required, whatever the context.Using feedback from the LAQ , executives learn how to configurecomplementary roles in order to build effective high performance teams.The LAQ consists of 48 questions and is completed by executivesand members of two core teams to which they belong.The 8 LAQ leadership archetypes:›››› trategistS Change-catalyst Transactor Builder››››I nnovator Processor Coach Communicator›››››› hange orientationC Client/stakeholder orientation Competitiveness Entrepreneurship and innovation Fun Learning environment›››››› espect for the individualR Responsibility and accountability Result orientation Social responsibility Teamwork TrustORGANISATIONALCULTURE AUDIT (OCA )
