"Culture eats strategy for breakfast," Peter Drucker said this ages ago and it is true: you can have a beautiful vision, mission, ideas and plans, but when people do not behave accordingly it won’t work. So if you want to build an organisational or team culture in which people are happy and engaged and where they can flourish you have to DO the right things. But what can you do?
In this meet up you will experience what happiness at work is about. Besides that Maartje will explain what a positive work culture is, what the 5 golden rules are to build it and who is responsible. People & Culture leaders, Agile coaches, HR managers and everybody who is interested in this topics please take your questions, stories and opinions to this session so we can discuss it.
