Description

Is Ketchup a hot sauce?

Building and developing a positive culture in an organization takes time and effort. However, the first thing to recognize is that a culture already exists in every organization and there is little one person can do about it. Once you understand and accept that, you can make a difference!

Culture:

  • Why should you care?
  • How can you make a difference?
  • What are practical steps you can take?
  • Is strategy or culture more important?

During our time, we will develop answers to these questions and you will have simple and straightforward ideas on how to influence the culture around you.

Ketchup may be hot sauce to you, but I am going to need something a little spicier!


Note: Lunch is not provided. Please bring your own.
