The Culture of Excellence and the Excellence of Culture
Raphael’s famous painting “The School of Athens” (1509) brought together the world’s greatest thinkers to produce an ideal environment for learning and creativity. Raphael understood the power of culture in driving and sustaining excellence. Business leaders today must also pay attention to issues of ethics, employee engagement, effective communication, civility, and other attributes of healthy, productive cultures. Dr. Paul J. Voss offers a compelling seminar for senior leaders interested in appreciating the lessons of history as we assess current needs, risks, and rewards.
