I’ve got a speech coming up next month with the following synopsis having been given to delegates. I’d like you all to be my coaches and guides.
“David will explore the diminishing relevance of attempts to influence behaviour through traditional change management techniques – and the risks that are inherent in managing change within an organisation with a script, whilst the world itself continues to surprise. David will link subjects as diverse as Winnie(-die-)Puuh (Winnie the Pooh), nudge theory and the architecture of the British Embassy to explore how, why and if organisations can change people as fast as the world itself does.”
I’m going to use my blog to map out my thoughts and, essentially, share my preparation notes with people – and put them up for challenge.
If you leave comments or suggestions and I use them you’ll get namechecked and I’ll owe you a coffee. I’m also open to suggestions over anything in terms of format that could be shaken up.
I’ve only got 25 minutes. My current thinking is to ignore all current thinking on death by PowerPoint and try and do 50 Haiku deck slides, taking people on a journey of small steps at pace. That’s the first thing up for debate.
I don’t want them to take 3 things away. I want them to take 100 questions away. I want everyone to grab at different content and concepts from a pick and mix of material. So that is the first thing it would be good to get feedback on. I’m not stupid, I see plenty of downsides, I may not follow your advice – but don’t think I won’t listen.
Thanks to Sukh who made me think about doing this differently (or the same thing but on turbo). Please note: my fortune cookie says I have the style and panache to carry this off.
