To be human after all

“Organisations are non-entities, people are organisations”.
Dr Aravind Srinivasan, Aravind Eye Care System

However much we like to imagine we’re in control of Connect, we know what happens in the room (garden, tent, field, amphitheatre) and what plays out in each of our minds as we walk away cannot be planned.

Stunning two days of sunshine and learning at Sheepdrove!

Here’s a glimpse into the wonderful couple of days we had down on the farm at Sheepdrove for our last event of Connect 2017, Reconnect. It sure was HOT HOT HOT but what a beautiful setting! Some great photos of our fantastic Connect 2017 members along with our fabulous speakers.

Change: Where to start?

After two discussion-filled days on Leading Change at Sheepdrove we reflect on where leaders choose to begin in the face of big, difficult or complex change and what these start points tell us about the longer journey

“Get the start right, the right point of entry, that’s how you get a conversation going, that’s how you walk toward people.”
Rob Burnet, CEO & Founder, Well Told Story

Glorious photos from Leading Change at Sheepdrove

In June we were back at Sheepdrove for our final Connect event of 2016. The weather may not have smiled on us, but our fascinating conversations about organisational and behaviour change made up for that.

Rob Burnet from Well Told Story – Promoting change by pointing people in new directions

Well Told Story uses various forms of media and a group of fictional characters to tell stories aimed at young people in Kenya.  The message they are trying to get across is that each individual needs to step up and help themselves to build a better future.

Rob Burnet, Managing Director, Well Told Story is clearly passionate about promoting change in the country.  Throughout this talk Rob explains why the concept has had so much success and shares a few examples.  He is both entertaining and inspiring.

What are some of the principles underpinning behaviour change?

What is ‘behaviour change’? Where do you start if you want to “move millions”? How do organisations equip themselves to effect lasting social change? This video begins the conversation with three perspectives on three fundamental questions from Joshua Gryniewicz, Cure Violence, Henry Ashworth, The Portman Group and Rob Burnet, Well Told Story.
