Immunity To Change - Why Is Personal Change So Difficult?

Immunity To Change - Why Is Personal Change So Difficult? Adaptive rather than technical challenges

The inherent assumption in most training and work-related attempts at encouraging personal change is that it is skills based, in other words people can be taught to change. They can be taught, but generally they won't change. They can't change and according to Kegan this is because of their inbuilt and invisible immunity to change.

 

# my take: I have been working with the Kegan approach to overcome immunities to change and resistances on both individual and collective transformation processes. This is a great tool; the book makes it accessible for corporate minds. Well worth reading. Also see the review of my colleague Jonathan Reams:http://integral-review.org/documents/Reams,%20Immunity%20to%20Change%20Vol.%205%20No.%201.pdf AC ;

Places to Intervene in a System by Donella H. Meadows - developer.*, Developer Dot Star

Places to Intervene in a System by Donella H. Meadows - developer.*, Developer Dot Star | cChange: Transformational Responses to Climate Change | Scoop.it

Folks who do systems analysis have a great belief in "leverage points." These are places within a complex system (a corporation, an economy, a living body, a city, an ecosystem) where a small shift in one thing can produce big changes in everything.

The systems community has a lot of lore about leverage points. Those of us who were trained by the great Jay Forrester at MIT have absorbed one of his favorite stories. "People know intuitively where leverage points are. Time after time I've done an analysis of a company, and I've figured out a leverage point. Then I've gone to the company and discovered that everyone is pushing it in the wrong direction!"

Boldly creating a world that works for all - Trimtabs for systemic change

Boldly creating a world that works for all - Trimtabs for systemic change | cChange: Transformational Responses to Climate Change | Scoop.it

 In the lecture I proposed ‘Trimtabs for systemic change’ as a strategy for creating a world that works for all. I introduced this as a strategy complementary to the conventional way of handling contemporary issues, where we strive to understand and control specific problems such as the climate change.  

# this is a really good talk, worth listening to! 

@Karen O'Brien, cChange
