Leading change: Two monologues don’t make a dialogue

An excellent article about the myths we perpetuate about change:

  • Organisations are like machines
  • ‘Disruptive’ change can be managed like a project
  • Myths about those who resist change

If we perpetuate these myths, failures will continue to follow.

3 Tips the article offers:

  1. Know your change: Adaptive Challenges require involving people throughout your organisation.
  2. Mind your language: Language matters. These changes occur when every day thinking changes. Thinking changes when the narrative changes, which requires a different language.
  3. Welcome your resistors: See resistance as something to be understood not overcome.
