Come Together: the people side of merging cultures
FAQ & Prices
How long is the workshop?
Come Together runs for one full day.
Who should attend?
Because the success of this workshop depends on getting the cooperation and involvement from people at all levels it is important that you select participants from senior management right through to front line staff. You’ll also want to be sure to include participants from all cultures involved in the merger so you can really capitalise on the contributions from all parties.
Is this workshop just a role-play?
No, it’s a real business simulation. And while the simulation is fictitious, your participants are all immersed in the experience and are “born” into their roles as “shorts” and “talls” (the names given to the two cultures in the simulation). Their responses and reactions will be real, not acted out.
Is this workshop a new concept?
No. The concept was founded by Barry Oshry of Power and Systems in the U.S.A. It is now used by organisations throughout the world as a way of addressing the – often forgotten – people side of merging cultures. In Australia however it is a relatively new workshop with The Human Enterprise being the first company to offer it.

What Others Say
I can not speak highly enough of Paul’s performance in helping us to get on the path of success with our merge. The feedback from the entire team was extremely positive. Even the most cynical were convinced.
Paul delivers all of this while making it easy and fun for everyone. It is a real pleasure to work with him.
Allain Moffroid, Ex Business Director - Out of Home, Unilever Australasia
Come Together gave the leadership team the opportunity to acknowledge and discuss our experience as two organisations learning to work together. The simulation set the scene for a robust Q&A session that unearthed some great questions and insights for the leaders of our business. As an experience we gained a broader appreciation of how it feels to ‘stand in another’s shoes’. We are certainly a more united team as a result of the experience.
Mark Milliner, Group Executive - Commercial Insurance, Suncorp
We were attempting to merge two marketing teams following a recent acquisition, when we decided to commission the help of The Human Enterprise. We felt the teams were largely working in silos and therefore were unable to maximise the synergistic opportunities and operate as one team with one direction. Already we have seen a noticeable difference in the tone and participation at the marketing meetings and consistently more shared learning’s and socialising across the team.
