Executives, Facilitators, Consultants, Managers, Team Leaders, HR and OD specialists
All organizations are learning organizations. In some organizations, this learning is unconscious. It is learning by reacting to the latest needs and crisis. In other organizations, this learning is conscious. It is learning by responding and being adaptive to change, with opportunities to develop new skills and capacities and reflect on lessons learned.
Those that learn consciously operate as solution-focused, inspired, life-nurturing organizations that achieve sustainable high performance. These organizations are adaptive and agile. They take advantage of emergent opportunities. They create organizational solutions to challenges. They thrive.
You are invited to learn how a Genuine Contact Organization can support your organization to develop itself as a sustainable, solution-focused learning organization.
