  • Organisational Culture

    How is your company’s organisational culture impacting business performance?

    For a recent business school syndicate assignment, our task was to assess the organisational culture of a company. Utilising established organisational behaviour theories as our framework, and primary, qualitative research methodologies to substantiate our findings (namely, in-depth, face-to-face, open-ended interviews), our syndicate chose to evaluate the organisational culture of Tila’s Herbs farm, a fresh produce […]

I have no reservations in highly recommending Engaging Talent for excellent leadership development training, workshop facilitation and coaching programmes. The fact that they have been able to successfully deliver in a robust environment such as WITS University, speaks to their high levels of competence and experience.

The humour I felt was both appropriate and kept all the ideas about organisational culture and desired outcomes that otherwise would've been complex, easy to remember and understand.

I personally enjoyed the workshop and feel it is a great thing that Standard Bank is doing in order to prepare some of their talented individuals for the working world. I also loved the fact that the facilitators were so relatable because they had study bursaries from Standard Bank
