In a two part series this Summer, the Network has been looking at how a compelling, jointly owned vision is a key starting point for deep change.
Yet this doesn’t seem to be sufficient – so how can we successfully navigate a change programme? In Part 1 of this series, we identified and explored the barriers we are facing. In Part 2 we invite you to join us to delve in to these issues further, with a focus on finding practical solutions.
Read more about the discussions from Part 1 here. The conversations highlighted many of the barriers and contradictions facing a prospective change programme. Feel free to add to the document, and then join us as we combine our collective perspectives to address these issues.
Register to attend by following the Book Now link above.
You can join us for networking from 18.00, with the start of the event at 18.30.

If you are new to the Reinventing Work Network, take a look at the Network's Starter Pack for more context and information.
Inspired by Frederic Laloux’s book Reinventing Organisations, The Reinventing Work Network is about distributed leadership, a focus on purpose, and an invitation to wholeness at work. They are exploring the developing organisational forms that support these goals (called “teal” by Laloux), learning about what’s being done, and inviting the practical adoption of these approaches by RSA Fellows, their organisations, and the RSA. You might have heard RSA talks by Laloux or by Jos de Blok, whose Dutch home-nursing group Buurtzorg is a standard-bearer for the movement. Buurtzorg is structured so that nurses organise themselves. They have no “managers”, and have cut costs to the health service by 40 per cent, while improving quality of care and employee satisfaction. The Reinventing Work network is a gathering-place for people who are leading their organisations towards “teal”, supporting change as consultants, or seeking to inspire change within their own organisations.
