This 2-day workshop will help you to create the conditions for your team to be innovative and creative, and help you to re-ignite the motivation to challenge the status-quo and encourage risk-taking and experimentation.
“A strong corporate culture is the invisible hand which guides how things are done in an organisation. The phrase, ‘you just can’t do that here,’ is extremely powerful: more so than written rules or policy manuals.”
Andrew S Grove, former CEO, Intel
