Club Meeting and Presentation on: How to avoid the clash of corporate cultures pre/ and post M&A

Chicago Booth Alumni Club of Poland

November 8, 2012: 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Join us for our monthly alumni club meeting on 8th of November at 7 p.m. in Restauracja "Colombia Bar".

This time Marcin Bajda (see vita below) will share with us his experiences as coach for middle and top management and as Interims Manager for SMEs.

We will learn about the crucial role of organization culture, its origin, strength and implications for leaders in pre- and post mergers phases and coaching as the empowering method for managers and executives. In particular: how to identify differences in organizational cultures and behaviors, how to transform these findings into concrete coaching actions in order to overcome or at least reduce potential clashes of corporate cultures that lead to M&A or turnaround failures.

Marcin has translated into Polish and publish Prof. Edgar H. Schein's - UoC book: "Helping. How to offer, give and receive help" into Polish.

After this presentation (up to 30-45 min.) we will move to the bar on the top floor, where we can talk in less formal, delightful atmosphere, over a glass of beer or another more noble drink.
