Is transformation just about mindset?
You can write any new mindset on a PowerPoint slide, but if you don’t change the conditions in your organization, it will fail. If you see the same problems several times, it’s an indicator that your organizational system has a weak spot. Focus on that first, instead on very intense mindset shift.
What does a successful transformation require?
Intervene on three dimensions! 1. Stage: Tell a story, not just numbers. 2. Structure: Make the required new behavior measurable. 3. Informality: Focus on networks and other non-written rituals, often these are powerful mechanisms.
What is the leadership role during a transformation?
Acting as role models who live and repeat honest, authentically messages. Deal with that through mindful listening and value-based dialogues.
Nothing can prevent a strong movement to meet: March 26, 2020 marked the biggest Working Out Loud meetup so far and connected more than 400 WOL practitioners from all around the globe.
Following John’s invitation we met in a one hour Zoom call, sharing multiple stories from the upcoming new edition of the WOL book. Sabine Kluge, Mara Tolja, Daniella Cunha Teichert, Katharina Krentz and myself, we all had the possibility to talk about how Working Out Loud influenced our life and work.
The following short trailer (147 seconds) beautifully edited by Mara gives a good overview over the virtual session:
