What is An Everyone Culture?


In 2016, the Harvard-based research team on DDOs published the award-winning book, An Everyone Culture, making a tremendous impact in the field of leadership development. After picking up this book, the leader quickly asks—how can I do this in my organization?


  • Gary Mamel, author of the The Future of Management and What Matters Now, stated that An Everyone Culture is “the most provocative recasting of human and organizational potential since the advent of the ‘learning organization.” It will transform how you think about work and workplace culture in the 21st


  • Best Management and Workplace Culture Book of 2016 (800-CEO-READ)


  • Gold Award: Human Resources/Employee Training 2016 (Axiom Business Books)


An Everyone Culture tells the story of how to become a Deliberately Developmental Organization (DDO). These DDO concepts were launched at three very different organizations: a hedge fund, a theater chain, and a technology firm. With careful guidance, the leaders at each company jumped into the process first by choosing an individual development goal, then used the Immunity to Change mapping process to work toward that goal.


We can find ourselves in their journeys of bringing the culture of development to everyone within their organizations! An Everyone Culture not only tells the story of becoming a DDO, but also introduces the research-based tools and concepts that provide the foundation for everyone, everyday, working on becoming their best!


Let us show you how to create An Everyone Culture in your organization—by introducing the foundational DDO concepts through our Ideal Culture Workshop and coaching.


Our goal is to share what we have learned from Bob Kegan and Lisa Lahey, creators of An Everyone Culture, and then launch your organization on this innovative journey. You will see the benefit of becoming a DDO in the commitment of your leaders and your employees throughout the organization. Another benefit described in An Everyone Culture is that you will see evidence of a more productive and effective workplace, leading to a measurable impact on your bottom line.
