In training and development, our goal sometimes is to change behaviors of groups, and sometimes these behaviors have been around for a long time. The book Walk Out Walk On deals with how communities learn and solve problems, and it provides some surprising insights into what works and what doesn’t in trying to change group behaviors. Check out the blurb below that was taken from the website www.walkoutwalkon.net. This book will lead to some thought-provoking discussions about how these approaches could be used in our organizations to change long-standing corporate cultures or group behaviors.
AROUND THE WORLD
WALKING OUT AND WALKING ON
Walk Outs are people who bravely choose to leave behind a world of unsolvable problems, scarce resources, limiting beliefs and destructive individualism. They walk on to the ideas, beliefs and practices that enable them to give birth to new systems that serve community. This is the story of an emerging movement of pioneering leaders and communities around the world who are self-organizing to create healthy and resilient communities.
