Join the Reinventing Work Network at two events exploring approaches to introducing change within organisations.
Encompassing conventional strategies as well as network responses, through a group discussion, Julian Wilson & Rachel Weikel FRSAs will unpack the phenomenon of change resistance and explore its nature.
In July Part One will unpack the problems facing organisations which wish to introduce change, and in September Part Two will look at potential solutions, including smarter ways to understand a social network – one which offers a quick and effective response to change.
Further information on the outcome of Part One will follow to those signed up to attend Part Two. For more information on the Fellow-led Reinventing Work Network see the Network's Starter Pack .
Although these events continue conversations started at previous Network events, all are welcome to contribute their views and ideas. It is possible to attend both sessions, or just one or the other.
Thursday 12 July, 18.30 – 20.30
Online via Zoom
Join the online discussion by clicking this link from a device with a webcam and headset a few minutes before the start time. You’ll be able to be seen and heard by everyone in the group.

Tuesday 11 September, full details to be confirmed.
About this network:
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.
