The world is changing fast – in technology, in politics and in society. That means we’ve got some big challenges and awesome opportunities ahead of us. And by extending our thinking, we can take advantage of disruption and make positive change stick.
Whose change is it anyway will take you on the journey of how to build a people movement, sharpening your understanding of who’s involved, tackle the challenge of when leaders go missing in action, keeping your people engaged through the disruption, how to tackle teaching new capability and finally bringing it all together into your professional practice.
