Next month's theme
  Training in Action – Culture and Climate

By Syd Strike

I have been privileged to help numerous organisations through, consulting, facilitating, coaching, training and change management programmes including exploring and working on culture and climate.

Typically culture has been described as ‘The way we do things around here’ and climate as ‘ How it feels working here’.

I find that senior management teams often request help to facilitate achievement of goals, the business plan and change management but the request for help to change the culture is not usually a popular request. And yet the changing world suggests we do need to be constantly looking at our processes, our people and our technology.
