About the seminar
Culture – is it a help or a hindrance?
Organisational culture is hugely important to the success and overall health of an organisation and the people who work for it. It is helpful to spend time considering why your company’s culture is the way it is, and why it is important that it stays that way or whether indeed if changes are required.
Every organisation has its own unique and distinct culture. An organisation’s culture consists of shared beliefs, expectations and values and sets the foundation for how well a team performs together.
A strong workplace culture guides the employees while giving them a sense of direction, hence improving overall team performance. It keeps your company’s core values to the forefront in all aspects of its day-to-day operations and organisational structure.
This workshop will be highly interactive and will provide a great peer learning exercise in discussing and reflecting on your own workplace culture, how you experience it yourself and perceive it to be and at the end of the workshop, evaluating how you think changes could be made, either on a personal level or within the workplace structure itself.
