THE CONCEPT

While the outside observer cannot accurately interpret the meaning captured in an image of a bicycle, an organization’s members can quickly articulate its cultural meaning and significance.

The Culture Safari invites participants to use pictures to safely explore the shared beliefs and assumptions that influence the way things get done in their organization.

By observing their surroundings and reflecting on what they see (and don’t see), heightened awareness of their organization’s culture and its subcultures is achieved and with this a deeper understanding of the ways that they, as leaders and members, shape the culture around them.
