An early morning thinking session to boost your learning in a highly focused 2 hour event!

We ask such questions as - Are masculine values a brick wall for Diversity? Are people literally killing themselves to work longer and hard to prove they are a 'superman' at work? Why is productivity so poor when all the tools are there to grow?



From Ken Blanchard to Tony Porter in a Ted Talk. The issue of over zealous masculine values ruining corporate culture and causing mayhem in the workplace is beginning to surface as potential root cause of many organisational (and tribunal) issues.
