Evolving Our Notions of Change

                    by Katherine W. Hirsh


Type has great potential as a self-awareness tool and yet this potential frequently remains untapped because its users are struggling to answer the “So What?” and “Now what?” questions and thereby missing the opportunity to relate type theory to the real issues people have at work. While part of what’s missing may be a deeper understanding of type, it is also the case that we frequently underestimate the barriers to enacting change and improving performance. I
Session Outcomes:
This session will explore and describe the three mindsets that can derail our efforts to introduce, manage and sustain change.
  • Mindset number one involves believing that people need to know why they should do something, rather than showing them the negative outcome if they fail to make a change.
  • Mindset number two entails believing that external motivations for change, couched in terms of control and compliance, are more effective than internal motivations for change, expressed in terms of mastery and engagement.
  • Mindset number three hinges on the belief that change is an outcome to be reached, rather than an ongoing journey to be navigated.
