CultureLab with Aga Bajer
About This Show
In the 21st century, those who change the world are those who change the culture. They get people in synch, lead tribes of “people like us”, and generate an energy field where ordinary people achieve extraordinary results.
But organisational culture can often be like the proverbial soap - too slippery to grasp. CultureLab with Aga Bajer is here to help you get a handle on culture. It aims at demystifying it and making it more accessible and less overwhelming in its complexity.
On this podcast, Aga interviews leadership thinkers, culture (r)evolutionists, entrepreneurs, and all sorts of movers and shakers to provide you with the inspiration and tips on how to harness the force that drives your future.Read more »
