ARTICLES FROM HUMAN CAPITAL REVIEW
Interactive Culture Change Model
*BEST SELLER* In my new book, A Journey of Diversity & Inclusion in South Africa which has just been published, I discuss the interactive culture change model. This is a 10-step model routed in direct and active engagement from leadership. This model relies on the critical interplay between the Head (the ‘knowing’ or intellectual buy-in), the Heart (the ‘being’ or emotional buy-in), and the Hands (the ‘doing’ or visible behaviour change). — Nene Molefi, Author, Lecturer, Diversity Collegium member and internationally Thought-leader in diversity and inclusion, values-driven leadership and transformation and author of A Journey of Diversity & Inclusion in SA
Restructure or Reconfigure?
Continuously changing markets dictate that companies have to reorganise. The advice that leaders receive, however, is just as fluctuating, as they constantly receive differing advice on when and how to reorganise. Some will say that the company requires a new structure, some will say that the current structure should be revisited, some may say that the benefits of reorganisation outweigh the costs, some will be more skeptical, some might say that the work can be accomplished before the conditions change again, while others will claim that it’s too risky. — Dr Mark Bussin, Chairperson, 21st Century, Author of Organisation Design for Uber Times
