Nurturing Change, with Esther Derby

Esther Derby

“They are resisting.”
“This shouldn’t take so long.”
“We must hold them accountable to new behaviours.”

These are complaints I have heard from people working on organisational changes.

It is true that change often happens more slowly than we’d like. In my observation, that is in large part due to how people go about it. I’ll share a different perspective on how to approach change– whether you want to make a small scale change on your team, or a significant change at the department or company level. Because whether or not you have change management in your job title, your job involves change.

Esther started her career as a programmer. However, over the years she’s worn many hats. From all these perspectives, one thing was clear: individual, team, and even organizational success depends greatly on the work environment and organizational dynamics.
