  • Are you imposing change by decree?
  • Is "the next big change" going to solve everything?
  • Do your people see what is valuable about the future you propose?

Even though the world around us is changing faster and faster, it proves challenging for companies and individuals to adapt to these changes. For these, change sometimes comes much slower and more painful than hoped. Changing, or adapting to change, is not simple on any level. Often, there is no right answer, and responding requires trial and error, learning and unlearning.

Understanding that you don't have to push, prod, persuade or punish people to create change in your organization, our guest today, Esther Derby, offers change by attraction, an approach that is adaptive and responsive and engages people in learning, evolving, and owning the new way.

She is the author of the book "7 Rules for Positive Productive Change: Micro Shifts, Macro Results for Change by Attraction". In it, she presents a set of seven heuristics—guides to problem-solving—that empower people to achieve outcomes within broad constraints using their personal ingenuity and creativity.

You may also know Esther as co-author of Agile Retrospectives: Making Good Teams Great.
