Management Training Resources: w/c 22nd January 2012

This week, we start with a look at the 7 features of organisational culture and ask, do your visitors see you the way you want to be seen?.

Other items in this week's "Management Training Resources" show you why working your systems will give you more time and less work; round 10 of our numbers and knowledge quiz, Quizzitch; a free teambuilder using everyday items; and our spotlight on a management training product that is essential if you are starting a new project.


Can You See Your Organisational Culture Like Your Visitors Do?

culture This week, we start with a look at the meaning of "organisational culture" by giving you 7 ways in which culture can be experienced by you, your staff and your customers. In this article, you'll learn why you should pay attention to everything that people see, feel, and hear in your business, from the everyday rituals, to the furniture in the offices, to the language that people use. They all reveal "culture". Read the article and click the links to more "culture-related" management training materials... more

Of all the free management training materials that we have ever offered you, this is undoubtedly one of the best. It won't take you long to "get it" once you start reading.
