The Greeks started to build temples thousands of year’s ago. Interestingly, many of these classic temples still stand today. Although these temples were originally dedicated to a God or Goddess, they were designed for specific purposes on secure foundation stones. Furthermore, the name Satori is a Buddhist term that means sudden enlightenment and awakening. This fits with our organisational values and culture.
The Greek Temple is a classic example of how fine workmanship has stood the test of time. Furthermore, the use of the Greek temple is an interesting management metaphor. This is because the temple is frequently used to illustrate the components that make up an organisation (De-Wit) and its culture (Handy). However, at Satori, we take the organisational components even further. That is, we add leadership development and coaching as a key component, especially, at executive and senior management levels too. However, we also focus on leadership development at junior levels also. Furthermore, at Satori, we argue that leadership, mission, values and organisational culture are intertwined.
An example of the temple, and its relationship with management theory is now explained
