Henley Forum Research Summit - Embracing Difference for change

A research summit for change agents: Exploring how to encourage acceptance of different ways of working.

Are you meeting resistance to alternative working practices or new ideas? How often do you hear ‘yes but…’?   

Reconfiguring roles, routines, and rhythms of work is disruptive. Demands to do things differently tend to upset people’s accustomed behavioural patterns, sense of security and emotional equanimity.  Some individuals and groups react positively to the chance to change, some have a negative response.

Professor Jane McKenzie will lead this 1-day Research Summit, which will examine the underlying reasons for resistance and explore some tools and techniques designed to open people’s eyes to the virtues of the new and different.  Click here for full information.
