We are drawing inspiration from Paul Bate's seminal work, "Strategies for Cultural Change," in which he challenges traditional views of organisational culture.
In this episode, I will review and share with you a recent reading of Otto Scharmers' book ‘The Essentials of Theory U’ (2018).
In this episode, we will investigate those two concepts and raise the question of what conclusion can be drawn for the management of social work organisations.
In this episode, we will get a bit deeper into this matter. First of all, I will start with a short description of what organisations are and will then move on to the main topic which is Change Management in Social Work Organisations. Finally, I will introduce you to the new concept: The Five C’s of Leadership in Organisational Change.

We start today with a short introduction to the model of Adaptive Leadership, before moving on to the question of what differentiates a so-called technical from an adaptive challenge.
