corporate governance

Corporate Governance is fascinating, hugely dynamic, and very far-reaching. It grew as a concept in response to increasingly serious corporate scandals of the late 1900s, and remains strongly concerned with these areas of corporate risk.

Only when the lower order needs of physical and emotional well-being are satisfied are we concerned with the higher order needs of influence and personal development... read more

organizational change, training and learning

Modern principles for organizational change management and effective employee training and development. These principles are for forward-thinking emotionally-mature organizations, who value integrity above results, and people above profit. This is not to say that results and profit don't matter, of course they do. The point is that when you value integrity and people, results and profit come quite naturally... read more
