What Is Culture?

Organizational Culture contributes to the unique social and psychological environment of an organization.

Culture is socially constructed through our underlying beliefs, valuesprinciples, behaviors and enabling structures. It can be witnessed in our conversations and the outcomes of our collaborations. At UTO we focus on building upon our strengths and assets and take an appreciative approach, which illuminates what is working, what we need to change and let go of, our vision of a brighter future and the steps we need to take to realize our dreams.

Recognizing that we are always a work in progress, we aspire to be conscious about what we are doing and how we are doing it. Afterall, we are not machines and bad habits are sometimes hard to break. So, we practice the behaviors we want to increase. We practice openness, inclusion, and transparency. We have an agile mindset, are goal oriented and work diligently to deliver innovative outcomes that delight our community and positively impact the world. We intend to be relational, authentic, visionary and empowered as we consciously cultivate a collaborative culture.
