The world is evolving and most organisations are not keeping up - learn to create real and sustainable change
Change management and other traditional approaches to culture reinforce existing problems.
They do not allow organisations to evolve quickly or sustainably.
Leaders, facilitators, business transformation and culture practitioners

You know that traditional change methods in an evolving world don’t work
You would like to influence organisations to adopt more adaptive and contemporary methods
You are motivated to become more effective in facilitating, leading and guiding change

Adaptive Cultures reminded me that culture change is an evolutionary process and offered a number of extremely useful strategies for wisely navigating the journey. Their approach to diagnosing the developmental maturity of an organization supports leadership in "holding the space" for what really is, as well as "what could be", in addition to ensuring that specific "change" initiatives are far more effective. They offer sage advice on the right interventions for an organisation as a whole and parts thereof.Mia Handshin, Immediate past Chair of the South Australian EPA 2012-2016
