The CASTLE® Organizational Survey

Castle® is an acronym for
Courage, Authenticity, Service, Truthfulness, Love and Effectiveness

WELCOME TO THE Castle® Organizational SURVEY

Castle® is an acronym that
stands for Courage, Authenticity,
Service, Truthfulness, Love, and
Effectiveness. When fully lived,
these principles are the path to
becoming free from living small,
uninspiring lives, enabling us instead
to live bright lives as a flame that
lights the way for others, making a
difference and lifting their spirits.
They are the principles that guide us as we make a difference in the world; they are what other people experience when we touch their lives and inspire them to greater things.

The world's top-performing organizations understand that building a team of inspired colleagues is even more powerful than striving for “employee engagement” because it builds inspired organizations that inspire customers. Inspiration thus becomes part of the strategic DNA and the differentiator in their success. The best-performing organizations commit to building an inspiring culture—a movement—and this is how they make a difference in the world.

The CASTLE® Organizational Survey is the result of 35 years of applied research among the Secretan Center’s global clients (including 30 of Fortune’s Most Admired Companies, and 12 of Fortune’s Best Companies to Work for in America).  It is based on the research documented in two of our best-selling books, ONE: The Art and Practice of Conscious Leadership and The Spark, the Flame, and the Torch: Inspire Self.  Inspire Others.  Inspire the World.

The purpose of the CASTLE® Organizational Survey is to ask deeply relevant questions, in order to understand the current level of inspiration among employees and the degree to which teams and organizations are striving to create inspiring environments.

Current research shows that 65% of North American employees are looking for another job, 80% don’t look forward to going to work on Monday morning, and staff turnover remains the single largest avoidable cost in organizations.

The Secretan Center supports organizations in building inspiring cultures that systematically improve and build on current levels of employee commitment, passion and contribution using proven interventions at the local and enterprise level.  We help clients to establish performance metrics that will inspire higher levels of performance, develop a comprehensive communication and training strategy, and design coaching and leadership development opportunities for every employee, manager, and leader.

Inspiring organizations create environments that inspire employees, who inspire customers.  This leads to legendary performance achieved through a raised level of passion and inspiration—the key to creating the best workplaces in the world.
