All the best companies share the characteristic of deeply transpersonal cultures. We are only made fully human by putting others before ourselves, a deeply affirming moral stance, grounded in social connection.
There are some amazing examples of how colors actually affect our purchasing decisions. After all, sight is the strongest developed sense in most human beings. It’s only natural that 90% of an assessment for trying out a product is made by color alone.

Both people and organizations rely on analogies to help them comprehend change, including the meaning and potential of new technologies, systems and processes. But do all analogies function in the same way? How strongly should organizations adhere to their chosen analogies?
In coping with change and innovation, companies generally engage in a three-phase process that involves assimilation, analysis and adaptation.
