A very well structured course providing insight into how to move an organization from unmotivated clock watchers to high performance first/fast followers of a new corporate vision. Truly highlights the wide gap between companies with poor leadership and those that inspire their employees with a shared vision they can support.

Great discussion of building a culture. This class was very practical - it defined how to think about the culture, how to implement the ideas and how to monitor and update the culture.

Interesting course. Makes one realize that while there are common themes for success, changing culture within established companies is a very real (and often very difficult) challenge.

This course contains a meaningful plan for changing oraganization culture, which is rare in my experience. Other courses speak mostly about leadership, but it is not enough.

Over all a bit lenghty, interesting subject but a bit too long over two hours, I would have appreciated more real life examples instead of multiple definitions
