Creating Thriving Work Communities

Creating Thriving Work Communities:

The Creating Thriving Work Communities program is a dynamic leadership development and organizational change program for executives, managers and other professionals charged with improving organizational performance through people. This in-house program focuses on fighting the enemies of organizational learning and transformation–cultural distance, organizational fragmentation and group alienation. It gets to the heart of what leaders must do to tap the individual and collective talent, energy and potential residing in today’s increasingly diverse work communities.

At the core of this highly interactive program is a new strategic framework based on the work of Frederick Falker for understanding and overcoming destructive, yet naturally occurring, divisions within our work communities. This framework helps leaders easily transfer what they learn in the workshop to the real world of their teams and organizations.
