Things Change. So Can Your Approach

change

Jim Hemerling’s Ted Talk illustrates just how inevitable change is in all aspects of our lives. Its our approach to change that makes all the difference. Personal transformation is seen as an exciting adventure. It motivates people to become better; inspires them to see change as a positive goal.

When organisational change is thrust upon us, we often fear the consequences. Its always easier to accept change when we make the decision to change. But how can organisations continue to run a business and make tough decisions, which often require changes, while creating a culture where change is embraced?

My thought is to change the approach first. Jim Hemerling suggests leaders approach organisational change by putting people first. His five imperatives for putting people first are: inspire through purpose; go all in; give them the tools to succeed;create a culture of continued learning; and have a clear, accountable vision.

Creating a circular thinking work place won’t happen over night. Habits are hard to break. However, when people feel included, wanted, and valued you will be surprised on how fast fear is replaced with trust.

I enjoy the big picture. This has lead me to explore plate tectonics, the archetypal nature of human beings, or the trend behind a collection of seemingly unrelated moments. I began my working life as a geologist, working in male dominated exploration camps doing everything from dirt bagging to running drill programs. As a result, I'm fascinated with masculine-feminine thinking styles and how both exist in every person, to varying degree.I have also been a Federal Government Land Claims negotiator in the Yukon, and a consultant to First Nations on geologic and environmental issues. I eventually studied writing for film and television. I wrote my first book on the feminine counterpart to the hero archetype, which I give workshops on worldwide including at Raindance Film School in London. I draw upon my work with Western and Oral cultures for my current book The Arrow and the Ring: Activating the Power of Linear and Circular Thinking. I enjoy writing, speaking, workshops and think tanks to understanding the underling drivers and recognizing opportunities for co-creating new possibilities.
