The Corporate Spring Model™

– for Thriving, High-Performing Team Cultures

The Corporate Spring Model tm

After nearly 20 years of studying, testing, practicing and achieving extraordinary results in some of the world’s most successful companies; we have developed The Corporate Spring Model to help our clients deliberately, strategically and continuously work with the principles we know lead to inspired, innovative, high performing team cultures.

The approach is founded in science, with a holistic perspective on human behavior, organizational psychology and group dynamics; grounded in reality, practically oriented and inspirational.

Research from Gallup shows that highly engaged teams, who are passionate and enjoy their jobs, are more creative and innovative, their organizations are more profitable – and they deliver up to 50% better performance than those who are less engaged!  

Teams, organizations and businesses are made up of people, and when leaders and organizations start caring and investing in the HUMAN side of their business; great performance and results will follow.

The Corporate Spring Model shows you how.

Why are inspired team cultures good for business?

Disengaged at work 4

87% of the global workforce say they are not engaged in their jobs.

Engaged at work

Only13% of the global workforce say they are engaged in their jobs.

Research from Gallup shows that powerful, thriving & highly engaged teams not only are more creative, innovative, agile and have a much lower attrition, they also outperform the less engaged teams by up to 50%.

Regretfully, only a minority of the workforce say they are engaged in their jobs, which costs US businesses alone more than $500 billion USD per year in unused potential.

Lack of leadership is given a lot of blame for the lack of employee engagement in most workplaces. In our experience this has a lot to do with leaders lack of knowledge and experience in how to create engaged, inspired teams and organization.

 We want to help change that. The Corporate Spring Model is designed to help leaders understand what they can focus on and actually do, in order to create more engaged, inspired, high performing team cultures in the new world of work.

Head of Global Demo Engineering, Cisco

Having worked with the Corporate Spring team over the last years, I have first-hand experienced the amazing effect of what they do and how they do it. By combining theory, experience and neuroscience with excellent facilitation skills, they have trained, inspired and provided tremendous value to our 350 people global team. Their work has led to higher levels of belonging, trust and engagement, more innovation, collaboration and better performance across the team. The return of this investment has been phenomenal.​

Ingrid Woodhouse

VP People & Development, Pexip

Corporate Spring was instrumental in our process of defining a common culture and values for the combined company this spring and help us focus on what matters the most in order to create a high performing global team. The presentation Annicken R. Day and Mikael Hansson held on our kick-off, about the importance of corporate culture, was extremely well received and created a lot of excitement and enthusiasm. We are really grateful for the excellent work and can highly recommend Corporate Spring for this type of work.

Mike Baird

Chief Executive Officer & Founder

Corporate Spring’s inspiration and insights have driven us to a greater level.  We are proud to be one of the most admired companies in our sector with employee ratings that are off the charts. Thank you for all you have done to improve corporate culture around the world!

Martin Falch

CEO, 360Leaders

You want your coaches to make an immediate impact on you and your team, and no one does this more than Annicken. She is by far the best “culture expert” I have ever come across both as a subject matter expert and her ability to facilitate implementation. Her impressive background, combined with her uniquely energetic personality and “no b.s”  attitude, was the reason we chose to engage Corporate Spring to work on our own organization, and now gladly recommended them to all of our clients.

Karianne Melbye

CEO Open Bank, DNB

The effect of the work Corporate Spring did with the digital business unit at DNB has by far exceeded our expectations. The digital teams work more effectively together, are more inspired and energized than ever, and demonstrate greater flexibility and willingness to change. We would never have achieved this level of engagement and shift in mindsets and motivation without the help of Corporate Spring.
