“You can create an amazing strategic plan,” said Joe Newberry, CEO and President of RFCU, “however, culture is the engine that drives strategic objectives and performance. It is the greatest tool for achieving organizational success—you need your people aligned and a culture that supports it to achieve results.”

In 2014, RFCU engaged Partners In Leadership after it discovered the company’s departments, while performing to standards, operated in silos and were not aligned around results. They deployed an immersive culture transformation process structured in a five-year plan across three programs: Accountability Builder™ (taking personal accountability), Leadership Builder™ (holding others accountable), and Lead Culture™ (culture transformation). Training tackled culture from every level and included hundreds of workshops across a multitier process, beginning with leadership engagement and buy-in before cascading to supervisors and employees. The Lead Culture process starts with executive collaboration around Key Results needed by the organization. The process then creates the Cultural Beliefs that build people organizations and a Culture of Positive Accountability.

The credit union has since experienced breakthroughs in cross-collaboration and strategic alignment, surpassing its previous metrics and achieving maximum-tier goals.
