project was going. He commented that DAS was very different from other organisations he has completed projects for. I asked him, “Why was this so?”. He said, when he had meetings with different groups of staff at other organisations, usually only the lead staff would speak. When he met with the different staff groups at DAS, every staff member contributed to the discussion! I was delighted to hear that. It suggests that DAS colleagues feel a sense of ownership and want to get involved in the creation and implementation of a very important software system. This is very good organisational culture!
DAS is an organisation filled with passionate, energetic and committed staff who work hard to make a difference in the lives of children with dyslexia. I am confident this collaborative culture amongst DAS colleagues will in turn encourage their students to be more confident young individuals who are not afraid to speak up and become advocates for themselves.
