146: Ask Andi—How To Successfully Achieve Change Management Step 2

Posted by Andrea Simon on Aug 12, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to overcome the pain of change!

I hope you joined me for my previous podcast, the first segment in our series of three Ask Andi's on change management. I explained how to identify your archetype as well as the archetypes of the people in your organization, so that you can better understand what you're going to be changing your organization to and why this is going to be so challenging. (No surprise: people don't like to change.) Today, I want to talk about changing your culture, what this means, and how to go about it. If your business wants or needs to change, this podcast is for you. Enjoy!

140: Tristan White—A Great Place To Work Starts With A Great Culture

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jul 1, 2019 6:00:00 AM

 Tristan White explains why culture is everything!

What if you started on your life's journey only to find out that it wasn’t really what you wanted to do? Perhaps you thought you'd become a teacher, until you realized you were never going to love it. Or you thought engineering was your calling, until you found out you weren't very good at math. Today's interviewee, Tristan White, thought he was going to be a physiotherapist working with sports stars helping them stay healthy and agile, until he actually started doing it. Not loving it, he pivoted, and the rest, as he will tell you, is history. We can all learn from Tristan's story!

How do you transform an old, established organization? How do you give it new purpose and change the way people get their jobs done? While that is what we do for clients, Dusty Rubeck showed us some fresh ways to move an organization in new directions. Dusty and I met at a Vistage meeting where I was speaking. He reminded me that he had heard me once before and had adopted a Blue Ocean Strategy approach to change himself and his organization.
