Are you doing enough to secure your future?

This introductory masterclass will focus on the concept of building a culture of ‘Continuous Learning’ within your team/organisation. We will investigate the key aspects of a Learning Culture and how it contributes to the success or downfall of an organisation.

Building on this we will explore how you can assess your own organisational culture. It is all about taking the time to think, asking the ‘right questions’ and being sure you are using the right tools to find your information. This will help you understand the problems that may be affecting productivity and losing your business’ revenue (e.g. resistance to change, internal conflicts, lack of engagement and poor organisational design).

Once you understand the principles of diagnosing an organisational culture, we will then focus our time on explaining the tools available to you for creating real transformational change within your culture. Delivering to you an understanding of how to expand effectively your team/organisation’s knowledge capital by building a culture in which people are empowered to share ideas, leave behind a fear of failure and become better able to generate and secure the future of your business.

In this session you will learn;

  • The added value of a Continuous Learning Organisation
