  11. 11. @Sch4Change #S4CA When [change agents] experience an expanded zone of freedom, another way to connect across hierarchies / geographies / functions, to interact with others, to display leadership… it’s hard to forget. They now know it is possible to do things differently and, very often, they’ve experienced change in themselves too. Celine Schillinger A quote that sums up the essence of The School for Change Agents

  14. 14. @Sch4Change #S4CA Leading change in the age of disruption “Tomorrow’s management systems will need to value diversity, dissent and divergence as highly as conformance, consensus and cohesion.” Gary Hamel
  15. 15. @Sch4Change #S4CA Life as a change agent can be tough • Working in a political system built on division and criticism • Challenging an all-powerful status quo • Others don’t see the potential or possibilities • You get ignored and treated as “not relevant” • Your successes and accomplishments often don’t get recognised • You have to choose your battles and emotionally detach from situations
  16. 16. @Sch4Change #S4CA The most effective disruptors are “tempered radicals” Source: Debra Meyerson: https://hbr.org/2001/10/radical-change-the-quiet- • Rock the boat but manage to stay in it • Walk the fine line between difference and fit, inside and outside • Conform AND rebel • Capable of working with others to create success NOT perceived by others as a disruptive troublemaker • Build own power base for change

  19. 19. @Sch4Change #S4CA The School for Change Agents is about using our power for change Power is one’s ability to achieve goals. Bertrand Russell We do that by expressing our
  20. 20. @Sch4Change #S4CA AGENCY definition: The action taken by people, individually and collectively, that expresses their power. Change agency is about pushing the boundaries of what is possible, mobilising others and making change happen more quickly Change AGENT definition: Someone who is using their agency to make a positive difference
  21. 21. @Sch4Change #S4CA We need change agents to illuminate the way! We need more people willing to step outside of expectations because our world is changing exponentially, and if all we do is meet expectations and the status quo - we will fall behind as organisations, as teams, and as societies. David Bray

  24. 24. @Sch4Change #S4CA The success of our actions as change- makers does not depend on what we do or how we do it, but on the inner place from which we operate” Otto Scharmer Leading from the emerging future
  25. 25. @Sch4Change #S4CA When leaders can cultivate both inner and outer skills, it increases their chances of success in large complex change by 52 percent. Deborah Rowland
  26. 26. Change is inherently relational: it depends on our ability to work with others to enable it to happen. In a system Helen Bevan and Goran Henriks @Sch4Change #S4CA
  27. 27. I am not outside of the change: I AM the change Source of graphic: Adapted by Helen Bevan from Reos Partners Others I am co-creating the change: I am part of (within) the system of change I am leading or enabling the change I am helping others to change I am apart from (above or outside) it @Sch4Change #S4CA

  30. 30. Self-efficacy There is a positive, significant relationship between the self- efficacy beliefs of a change agent and their ability to facilitate change and get good outcomes “The ability to act is tied to a belief that it is possible to do so.” “Our sense of conviction that we can successfully execute a task to produce the result we want to see” Albert Bandura @Sch4Change #S4CA
