A sad week for the OD world

A giant has fallen and we would like to dedicate our newsletter this week to the memory of Edgar Schein. 

I cannot count the amount of times we quote him or reference his work in our programmes. It is impossible to talk about Organisational Culture without seeing his footprints somewhere in the conversation. When I scrolled through all the beautiful messages on his LinkedIn profile I was reminded of the Lily-pond metaphor and how much goes on ‘under the surface’ in all organisations.

We send our most heartfelt condolences to his family and friends, and we remain ever grateful for his incredible contributions to the fields of organisational development and leadership.
