Ep. 83: Agendashift
Show Notes

In the most recent episode, Peter and Dave engage in a thoughtful discussion on Mike Burrows' book "Agendashift". They highlight the book's unique consolidation of practices and experiences that Burrows has accumulated while working with clients. They particularly appreciate the book's straightforwardness and how it almost reads like a how-to guide for those facilitating conversations.

The book focuses on emergent approaches that can be tailored to an individual organization, rather than a one-size-fits-all framework. They appreciate that each chapter includes exercises, underlying principles, and theories. Peter and Dave also acknowledge the book's emphasis on the human behavior side of things, which can be easy to overlook during transformations.

This week's takeaways:

  • How do you create outcomes that are relevant?
  • Empathy is a change agent super-power
  • How to Guide- Facilitator driven
