In this far-ranging discussion, Change Management Review Managing Editor Brian Gorman and Michael Hynes, author of The Myth-Guided Mind, get very practical about the role of change practitioners and change leaders in today’s workplace uncertainty.

Tune in to get Michael Hynes’ answers to questions such as:

  • In The Myth-Guided Mind, you share a significant personal trauma in your life and how that informs the way that you interact in the world. Why is that message important to our community of change practitioners today?
  • As we have discussed in the past, you’re not saying that organizational leaders and managers should be therapists, are you?
  • Why is it so important now for change practitioners to “speak truth to power?”
  • In their report on How Millennials Want to Work and Live, Gallup identified six culture shifts that organizations need to make in order to get the most out of the millennial workforce. One of the six is the importance of organizations shifting their focus “from my job to my life.” How is this playing out?
  • With the uncertainty of what the future of work holds, how should change practitioners and change leaders respond to employees who feel “everything is changing?”
  • Why is it so important for leaders to set clarify of vision at this time?
  • What is important about culture as the workplace of the future starts to take shape?
