Spend the Day with Viv McWaters and Johnnie Moore: Exploring The Edges of Work

About the Day: Wednesday 5th October

Workplace approaches that were once just fine are now struggling in the face of complexity, unpredictability and demands for creativity, innovation and agility.

Change happens at the edge: we see it in systems and in our own lives. At the edge, we are away from the routine and familiar: it’s exciting but scary territory, but it’s where new patterns and routines can emerge. How can we support people in staying in the space at least long enough for useful change?

We’ll share ideas for navigating edge territory, overcoming habitual patterns that give us a kind of safety but prevent us from making real change.

We look at three tyrannies that keep us away from the edge:

  • the tryanny of excellence,
  • the tyranny of effort and
  • the tyranny of the explicit

And we’ll share a series of activities we’ve found powerful in getting organisations out of stuck places, rigid arguments and unquestioned rituals and into territory where it’s possible for new work to emerge.
