Stuck in Business With Brains Averse to Change
Under most circumstances, the human brain will avoid the vulnerabilities involved in generating new value. It simply will not invest the energy - except when it will.
In these 20 minutes I propose to take the group through specific examples of sparking and sustaining the kind of systemic curiousity required for Business Agility.
We'll review what I've seen to be effective creating the desired environment, including Dont's as well as Do's. Going well beyond the 'psychological safety' of Google's Aristotle project, we'll explore the social and physiological requirements, relationships, skills and practices that feed the ingenuity required for ongoing Business Agility.
Attendees will enjoy participating in one live example.
