Since our founding in 1978, we've had a singular focus: create healthy, high-performance cultures

Cultures in all organizations happen by either default or design. Creating the culture you need for your business can change the behaviors and mindset of your leaders, teams and the organization, creating a powerful competitive advantage. Unless it is treated as a key strategy and a long-term journey, culture change  is  likely to end up being another failed and forgotten program. Getting it right begins with choosing culture transformation experts to guide your culture transformation.


A Heidrick & Struggles company, Senn Delaney was the first firm in the world to focus exclusively on transforming company cultures. It has been our sole focus since 1978. Our guiding purpose is to positively impact the world by inspiring leaders to create thriving organizational cultures. The world’s most recognizable companies have partnered with us to create healthy, high-performance cultures, accelerating success.

This passion and singular focus on culture, combined with decades of hands-on experience, has resulted in a comprehensive, proven culture transformation methodology that engages people at all levels and measurably impacts both the spirit and performance of organizations. Learn more
