Julian Stodd - Change has to be co-created and co-owned

Julian Stodd - Change has to be co-created and co-owned

So, looking at the police again, you know, the senior people in the police say, “We’re determined to root out sexism, and racism, and homophobia.” And they probably are, you know, they genuinely want to change it. But nonetheless, those messages don’t get down and work through, because any kind of change has to be co-created and co-owned at every level in the organization. So, I guess the biggest change, the thing I really tried to work with people on is[...]

Julian Stodd - A model of how cultures fail

I’ve been working on a model of how cultures fail and trying to focus it on the cost of membership of a culture. So, if you work for an oil company at the moment.

I think the challenges they face is that many businesses are built on what they consider to be on unassailable business models.

And so, we’ve seen this in the retail clearly. I mean, we’ve seen the erosion of – the old notion that[...]

Julian Stodd - The walls of the office mean nothing

A lot of the – if you like, social dynamics of work used to be about – at the heart of the social contract was: “you give us your time.” You know, you give us your time and we give you a regular salary. You forgo, you give up certain freedoms, in terms of what you can do and you conform to policies and procedures and you subsume yourself into the brand, in return for a regular paycheck. And in[...]
