Stop re-arranging the deck chairs!

The Titanic was going 42 km/hr when an iceberg was spotted dead ahead. I imagine there was a wild scramble to do something to save the ship. I often wonder if they had rearranged the deckchairs, as I’m sure the outcome would have been different. As crazy as this sounds, there are many organizations who rearrange the deck chairs and can’t figure out why their transformation continues to fail. Adding more process, firing leadership and coaches, planning for efficiency, throwing more money at the problem and so much more. None of which helps the situation, and if anything speeds up the inevitable.

In times of change, your response to the problems you will encounter can make the difference between success and failure. During this session, you will learn The Responsibility ProcessTM, and you will start to understand and know how your response to problems is creating your reality. You will also start to understand how by creating an environment of shared responsibility, it is possible to avoid the icebergs (or at least survive the collision).

Outline/structure of the Session

This session is based on The Responsibility Process and the work of Christopher Avery.

It will start with building some awareness of the number of times we just re-arrange the deck chairs on the Titanic, rather than taking meaningful action.

Participants with are then introduced to The Responsibility Process through an immersive experience in which they will work on something they are stuck on. This will take up the bulk of the time. By the end of this session, participants frequently report to me they have an insight, ah-ha or breakthrough on their issue thanks to the work they do with their partners.

Learning Outcome

  • Participants will know The Responsibility Process, having experienced each of the mindsets throughout this time together
  • Participants will start to have some awareness of how their responses to problems and upsets are creating the outcomes they have

Target Audience

Any and all - although a leadership topic this is relevant to everyone
