Leading change in the 21st century? You need a 21st century engagement model:
The old way based on prescribed solutions is the way of pain and disappointment. Needs are both the place to start and the ultimate test of success – because if solutions aren’t meeting needs, what’s the point?
The positive, humane, and complexity-aware alternative to the imposed rollout: authentic agreement on outcomes as the catalyst for change, the focus for self-organisation, and the driver for innovation.
Lasting success comes not from one-off projects with their uncertain results and the near-inevitability of backsliding, but from the practice of continuous change, deliberate realignment, and ongoing conversations.
