The challenge culture presents is that it is the behavioural equivalent of the water in a goldfish bowl. We mostly don't know that it's there but it, nevertheless, sustains life. The tools that TRANSEARCH International (powered by Orxestra®) uses provide a unique perspective regarding culture, performance, leadership and team 'fit'.
The demand for skilled leadership exceeds supply worldwide and the pressure is high for organisations to find and retain top talent. Ulrich F.

In this excerpt from the book 'The A–Z of Organization Culture', John Burdett explains why the speed of learning is quickly becoming the ultimate competitive advantage, and presents several innovative ways of introducing effective learning experiences into your organisation.
