Michael Henderson is a Corporate Anthropologist and has a profession, the mandate, to unearth ideas and trends that affect the very fabric of our society. His ground breaking work on values has helped countless organisations to explore what makes people tick and what we value most.
Whilst senior management often view their company as an enterprise, Michael offers a new point of view: the organisation as a tribe. He believes it is vital to ask where is the power set, who are the heroes, why do people want to belong, what is the power structure and who has real power?
In these times of skill shortages, the rise of the employment brand and staff demands for employment to align with their own personal values, going into business without a plan for organisational culture is a business liability, one that even the most sceptical Chief Financial Officer can no longer afford to ignore.
Having worked across all sectors, Michael Henderson has a degree in Anthropology and is qualified in Axiology, the science of human values. Michael is often described as a powerful, thought-provoking speaker as his ideas on culture often contradict traditional beliefs.
His presentations are fun, practical and always focused on performance. Michael's research efforts have been so innovative that he also now has three bestselling books on mastering company culture and the power of human values.
