Overview

How can a work place culture become a more powerful incubator of the single greatest determiner of company success – the further unfolding of human capabilities? Using a variety of interactive pedagogies, we will be exploring research and practice in the field of Adult Developmental Psychology brought to the topics of organisational effectiveness, leadership development and performance enhancement.

Content

Through the creation of a novel and dynamic learning community built on principles of adult developmental psychology, participants will:

• learn the concept of an ‘immunity to change’, experience their particular version of this phenomenon as it relates to a change goal of their own, and consider how we are best helped to overcome it
• consider what 40 years of research on stages of increasing mental complexity in adulthood mean for the reconceiving of ‘leadership development’ and ‘organisational learning’ in the 21st century
• explore real examples of ‘immunity to change’ practices brought to teams and whole enterprises, including a London-based company known to you all
• meet the Deliberately Developmental Organisation (DDO): what might an organisation look like if it so valued developing the capabilities of its people that it sought to fashion a culture that would immersively sweep nearly every employee into a personal-development journey in the context of carrying out one’s normal daily work?
