Change is hard. Transformation is always a journey and without a framework, it can feel like you’re not getting anywhere fast – just like without a roadmap, we can get lost. It is Kübler Ross’s grief curve to which we refer to understand how humans deal with change. In letting go of the old reality, whether it was good or bad for us, we experience a sense loss.
Sustainable behaviour change happens in 5-10 degree shifts when people find personal purpose in the change. How each person unlearns and relearns is different. When we embark on systemic transformation of a culture, we need to address much complexity in the planning and then make it as simple, intuitive and as personal as possible in execution. So, within the framework we give people the freedom to experiment, learn and adapt – creating a psychologically safe space to play.

BEHAVIOUR CHANGE PROGRAMME
We need to identify and unlearn the old habits that no longer serve us, to make space for new habits that we need to learn. We need to be open to the possibility of the benefits of change, in order that we have staying power to endure the process of change. Real life continues and can try to pull us back to the safety of what we know and that which has perhaps served us well enough in the past.
Multiply that by hundreds of thousands of people across multiple locations and you have the need to design a behaviour change programme to affect systemic change that is sustainable.
The expertise required to deliver sustainable systemic behaviour change (delete systemically) includes a cocktail of skills in psychology, neuroscience, leadership and business acumen, organisational design and development, creativity, technology and (delete excellence in) execution. This needs to be grounded in a structured framework which brings the discipline and freedom to create each custom-made solution.
6-week interactive campaigns create “waves” of momentum, stretching each person with a “sticky” learning experience that is relevant and simple making it feel almost intuitive.
BEHAVIOUR CHANGE WAVES
EVERYDAY AGILITY® CULTURE TRANSFORMATION
This decade has redefined the world in which we live and work as the “Never Normal”. The workplace, and society as a whole, can transform at a pace previously unrecognisable due to technology and the need to survive and thrive. As such, expecting normalisation can only lead to complacency.
Therefore, it is critical to embrace an expansive mindset with everyday agility in how we think and envision the future. Leadership styles need to be more present to our teams, our businesses and our communities to ensure that decisions are relevant and resilient. We define this as Conscious Leadership. Conscious leaders are not defined by a job title; they take ownership to lead in autonomous empowered teams.
The discipline of agile was successfully reinvented in the early 2000s by software firms. Today, all organisations need to explore their recipe for agility to ensure they do not just survive but can thrive in the never normal.
The challenge to embed the discipline of agile into an organisation is to ensure that it is not rejected as a parasite by the ‘system’. Whilst not everyone in the organisation will practice the discipline of agile, the culture of the organisation does need to embrace everyday agility for it to succeed.
