Culture, Identity, & Brand Consulting

Areas of Expertise
If you think of the world as a playground, these would be the sandboxes we'd be playing around in.
At Mojo, we like to think of culture in a few ways. Sure, there's the more formal, academic way of conceptualizing organizational culture (and believe us, don't get Matt started on this...or if you do, pack some snacks), and we use that as an initial launching point for discussion. We talk about artifacts and structures and roles and power dynamics and symbols and stories and rituals and narratives and all sorts of fun...er...academic stuff. But then we find that it's often helpful to start using different metaphors and methods to understand what organizational culture really is. It clicks for some when we say it's the framework within which everything happens and the lens through which everything is perceived for your organization. Others see the light when we call it an organization's unique DNA. Still others nod in agreement when we say it boils down to culture being the written and unwritten "way we do things around here." However it makes sense to you, your organization's culture is the foundation of its identity. And that's a big deal. With those things in mind, Mojo is oriented around helping organizations navigate some pretty crucial components of their business: culture, organizational identity, leadership development, and organizational development & design.
Organizational Development & Design
Tired of boring speakers that talk about the same stuff? Matt's on a crusade to make the world a better place by helping companies be better places to work and people be more fully human. And he sure as heck isn't boring.
Meet the collaborators (or is it co-conspirators?) who are bent on making this world a better place by helping organizations be better places to work and people be more fully human.

About their teammates. About their executives. About their schedules. About their pay. About…well…pretty much everything. Toxic teammates find ways to rationalize[…]
If asked, I suspect most leaders would say they want to be innovative; however, when it comes to developing the requisite skills to be an innovative leader, we still have a ways to go. Much of that, I would guess, has to do with the fact that innovation is such a fuzzy word, oddly enough,[…]
Leaders should be great storytellers. Why do I say that? Well, what do great stories do? They make us think. They make us feel. They make us care. They can even make us take a side. For centuries, people, groups, and cultures have used stories for a variety of purposes, right? They used them to[…]
This week, I’ll be at a conference giving a talk on Culture and Storytelling, following which I’ll be part of a panel discussion about the Future of Work, and specifically about developing current, millennial talent into future leaders. It’s interesting to note the skills toward which organizations seem to be migrating as it relates to what they’re looking[…]
