The truth about change isn’t a secret, but it can sometimes be very hard to see amidst the solid pillars of tradition and the well-rehearsed narratives of the status quo. If only something would come along to really shake us out of this complacency and inertia… Well, as one recent workshop participant put it, “there’s nothing like a pandemic for focusing the mind on enhancement”. These difficult, dangerous and tragic circumstances really mean that resisting change is no longer an option (if ever it was). And everything we know about change, from organisational behaviour through to psychology and neuroscience, is right there in front of us. And as regards complex adaptive change, the paradox of moving through uncertainty with confidence remains the key challenge of strategic leadership.
