This blog is about the relationship between organizations and the people who work for them and the communities they operate in. And, it’s dedicated to the 100s of millions of people around the world who go to work every day wanting to do a great job.

Back to school. Back to work.

Rene Magritte’s famous painting Golconde.  Work as a formalized dreary rainy man’s world.

This image, seems so right and so wrong.  Today, after the official end of summer holidays here in North America and in much of the western world, we are returning to our work routines.

The good news.  The opportunity for change is perhaps as great as at any time of the year as plans will be submitted for final approval for 2012 [and in some cases beyond].

Time to think about the institution’s real values.  Time to think about the culture that will best suit your institutional objectives given those values.  Time to make the business case for investing in the capacity to make it happen.
