Announcing: Navigating Transitions – abp Workshop

We are pleased announce that Catherine will be running a full day workshop on Transition Leadership with the abp – The Association of Business Psychology on Thursday the 28th of February 2019 in Piccadilly, London.

Do we need to consider organisational culture?

When we talk about culture in the organisational sense what do we mean?

We mean the way things are done, the shared values and beliefs that shape how people act, interact and perform their roles within the organisation.
