Having looked at several practitioners of the Ekvall criteria, I have been delighted to work with Mark and the Dolphin Organization to evaluate BBI’s culture for change and creativity. Mark has combined excellent, pragmatic business realism, with the passion to drive 21st century business growth, and he communicates this in a way that has engaged every level of the business and been truly inspirational. If you are looking to the future for you and your business, you need to do this!

SHARED VIEW

This dimension refers to the extent to which there are open and adequate communications between more and less senior employees. This also refers to the extent to which individuals feel that there is openness between people at work.

 

Low Shared View High Shared View
In organizations where the shared view is low there are divisions between different levels at work in the perception of purpose. The climate demonstrates a feeling that there is a lack of openness, honesty and integrity about communication within the organization. These organizations are characterised by high levels of ‘us and them’ between divisions, levels or departments. Organizations that have a climate demonstrating high levels of shared view are characterised by a sense of unity in purpose and direction. They also demonstrate a level of openness between individuals in that the communication between individuals is open and honest. In climates where there is a high level of shared view there are low levels of ‘us and them’ between employees and higher levels of simply 'us'.
