The Swedish Chamber of Commerce would like to extend a big thank you to Gabriele Hamm Adler, GHA Development – Growth for People & Business for leading the fourth session of the Mentorship Program and for taking over from Hendrik Jan in such short notice. Gabriele had prepared a very interactive program on Business Culture explaining different methods and invited all the participants to take part of the discussions. Thank you also Nils van Dijkman and Lars Bakker for your personal statements and for interacting with Gabriele.

 

 

Business Culture session by Gabriele Hamm Adler: 

We have over the last years learned that nothing is constant as the world around us is in continuous change. It has become more important for leaders to understand how the changes will impact the organization and to be able to navigate through this time of disruption. How to still be genuine while adapting?

In this session we will reflect about the significance of Culture and cultural awareness. We will discuss Culture from different angles and how it translates into your organization’s daily reality. How can you adapt and develop while staying true to yourself?
