Do we always point all the reasons of failure in transformations to mindset change. Is it our one go to whenever we face a wall or failures and is it true? In this session we will look at what is mindset change, and how sometimes it could be insecurities and territorial dominance.

  1. We will talk about a few examples of areas and people where it was thought to be a mindset problem, but how not always that aspect is the key player
  2. Ways to identify the problems that seem like mindset - and create a cloud over the actual problem and how it deviates us from solving the real issue, this is why most organizations feel that we cannot make a mindset change

    45 Mins
    Case Study

    Collaboration spaces, agile floor-plans, open office it or hate it, you can't ignore it.

    From our experience across various companies - some with 6 feet high cubicles walls to some with completely modern collab workspaces - we would like to share what seems to work and what doesn't.

    We would also link it to underlying mindsets and cultures and when and why some spaces seem to work better than others.

    We would also give examples of very high collaboration in very silo-ed workspaces - and when and why that works!
