At Loving Monday we’re one of only a handful of organisations accredited to run ‘Emotional Culture Deck’ workshops and development programmes in Europe.
The Emotional Culture Deck provides a simple card-based tool for structured face-to-face conversations about workplace culture, feelings, and experience.
It’s for leaders who need to understand what drives and motivates the people in their organisation, but struggle to bridge the conversation and empathy gap.
Unlike impersonal, reductive, digital approaches that make people feel like undervalued cogs and reduce engagement. The deck helps leaders ensure empathy and human connection become a core part of an organisation’s style and success.
Only the Emotional Culture Deck is simple enough to get up and running in minutes, yet powerful and flexible enough to drive lasting organisational change.
Here’s a short clip of Jeremy Dean the inventor to tell you a bit more about it and where it came from.
The Emotional Culture Deck was designed to fulfil a simple, but critical, shortcoming in many organisations.
Most organisations and leaders don’t pay enough attention to how employees are or should be feeling. They underestimate how central emotions are to building the right culture and employee experience.
Traditionally, companies focus solely on their shared values and behaviours to try and guide how their people think and behave at work.
But the other critical part of how people think and behave at work is the emotional culture of a company – how people feel. Because how people feel (or don't feel) drives the way people think and act.
Studies show the significant impact of emotions on how people perform on tasks, how engaged and creative they are, how committed they are to their organisations, and how they make decisions.
When leaders recognise emotions in the workplace, and consciously shape them, they can better serve and motivate their people.
Research shows emotional culture influences employee satisfaction, motivation, connection, engagement, burnout, teamwork, and even "hard" measures such as financial performance and absenteeism.
