How can this resource help?

This is a practical, do-it-yourself guide for leaders and facilitators wanting to help organisations to function and to develop in more healthy, human and effective ways. The guide, with its supporting website, includes tried and tested concepts, approaches, tools, stories and activities to help us understand:

  • Ourselves and our roles as leaders and facilitators, as we try to understand and facilitate change in organisations.
  • The significance of relationships and power dynamics in organisations and organisational change processes
  • How to read organisations, including how organisations tend to move through various phases of development, how we might facilitate change and the challenges we all face in implementing or sustaining change
  • The processes of building learning organisations, how we can continually learn both from our own experiences and the experiences of others.
