The ability to assess and build a great organizational culture has become one of the most important skills of our time. Unspoken norms have far more influence on organizational culture than written codes. Organizational success has less to do with the knowledge, skills and abilities of its members than the complex patterns of communication within the system. These communication patterns aren’t fully understood through quantifiable methods alone and must be measured in different ways. This session will teach participants the methods to assess organizational culture and will introduce a revolutionary approach to understanding systems and organizational thinking. This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.
