A Neanderthal’s Guide to Wise Change


Over the last 100 years, we have created work environments for which we are completely ill adapted. The pace and nature of change in the workplace is creating massive tensions between what we want, what we need and what we are actually built for. A huge industry has evolved to help organizations deal with change, but we are still in the early days of understanding how to actually create wise change and make it stick. This lighthearted presentation will explore what we can all learn from Neanderthals about making wise change stick.

You will walk out of the presentation with both a smile on your face as well as a couple of new tools in your Change Management toolkit. As a bonus, you will meet George, BalancePoint’s pet Neanderthal.

The BalancePoint change model is built upon an experimental/experiential approach to change that incorporates the latest insights in to what we think and act the way we do. Chris has been a perplexed student of change for the last 30 years having been an executive and serial entrepreneur in the technology sector.
