Mayvin The Development Trap discontinuous change

The Development Trap: how do you adapt and learn close to the grain of the work in discontinuous times?

Unprecedented change – whether it is Brexit, power shifts or new funding models – means we need to learn fast, reflect on the job and become more adaptive by changing our behaviours.

But how do you develop the skills to do this, and help others to do so, when there is no time for learning?

Next month we’re hosting an evening of shared inquiry exploring questions for times of discontinuous change. We will look at:

  • How can you take a pragmatic approach to violent changes of direction?
  • How can you and your colleagues develop the resilience to be vulnerable with each other?
  • How can you reflect and learn on the job?

Ainne Dolan-Williams, Head of Organisational Development and Design at the Department of Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) and James Traeger, Mayvin Director, will share their experience of developing a ‘just in time’ leadership model to support Defra to operate from a place of safe uncertainty.

We’ll also be sharing insights from our current work across sectors and our model of practice-based learning.
