How to Cultivate Change at Work

Succulent Plant and Binder Clips

Sustainable change is elusive. Whether it’s as significant as Brexit or as personal as finding a job you love, the obstacles are surprisingly similar. Perhaps more surprisingly, the solutions are also similar. 

Today's organisations are more like ecosystems than machines. So, if you want to make a change work, you are more likely to succeed if you approach your change as a gardener not a mechanic.

In my new book Gardeners Not Mechanics: How to Cultivate Change at Work I describe:

  • Why popular "change management" recipes have failed to deliver the sustainable value.

  • The three key characteristics of ecosystems:unpredictability, interdependence, limits of control..

  • A framework for thinking like a gardeners, entitled The Elements of Gardening.
