What if a company did everything in its power to create a culture in which everyone could overcome their own internal barriers to change and use errors and vulnerabilities as prime opportunities for personal and company growth? Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey have found and studied such companies - deliberately developmental organizations. A DDO is organized around the conviction that organizations will best prosper when they are more deeply aligned with people's strongest motive, which is to grow.
"An Everyone Culture May Not be For Everyone"
In Immunity to Change, authors Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey show how our individual beliefs - along with the collective mindsets in our organizations - combine to create a natural but powerful immunity to change. By revealing how this mechanism holds us back, Kegan and Lahey give us the keys to unlock our potential and finally move forward. And by pinpointing and uprooting our own immunities to change, we can bring our organizations forward with us.
"Should be Required Reading for humanity"
Why is the gap so great between our hopes, our intentions, even our decisions - and what we are actually able to bring about? Even when we are able to make important changes - in our own lives or the groups we lead at work - why are the changes are so frequently short-lived and we are soon back to business as usual? What can we do to transform this troubling reality? In this intensely practical book, Harvard psychologists Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey help us answer these very questions.
"NEEDS TO BE READ"
Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey, both of Harvard, discuss what they've learned from studying radically transparent organizations where people at all levels of the hierarchy get candid feedback, show vulnerability, and grow on the job. Their book is "An Everyone Culture."
Robert Kagan, Lisa Lahey, and Matthew Miller, of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and Andy Fleming, CEO of Way to Grow, Inc, report on how a close examination of two very different companies suggests that melding business excellence with personal development can create a new kind of competitive advantage.
