George Lee Sye talks about Business Improvement and Change Management

These are the show notes for the podcast On Change, which explores change that works and the people who make it happen.

Episode 04

In this episode I speak to Business Improvement guru and kindred spirit George Lee Sye, owner of Soarent Vision Pty Ltd, and lead trainer at the Academy of Business Improvement Leadership (AOBIL Professional Learning Hub).  

George guided me through the coursework for a green belt in Lean Six Sigma. He is the author of the Business Improvement handbook Process Mastery with Lean Six Sigma, which provides practical guidance on how to do Business Improvement. He mentions his friend and business partner Harry Sinko, who contributed to the book.

During the Rapid Fire round George mentions his new book The Master Presenter (available in June 2018). The book he recommends to anyone to read is Blink by Malcolm Gladwell

We also talk about two of his other books: How to take control of your brain and The problem solving brain

We are both avid list makers and to read George’s thoughts on making lists read Kill your To-Do list before it kills you. George’s favourite list app is Things (only available for Apple) and mine is Wunderlist

George is an instructor for the California Superbike school in Australia. I have not attended one of their courses YET.

What is Change Intelligence (CQ)? Talking to Dr. Barbara Trautlein from Change Catalysts

These are the show notes for Episode 3 of the On Change podcast hosted by Petro du Pisani

******************

In 2017 I had the privilege to travel to attend the Association for Change Management Professionals (ACMP) conference in New Orleans. 

I signed up for a post conference workshop on Change Intelligence (CQ) and using change simulations to facilitate change. This workshop was presented by Dr. Barbara Trautlein from Change Catalysts. She wrote the book Change Intelligence (Use the Power of CQ to lead change that sticks) and you can see her speaking about CQ on YouTube.

In this episode of On Change Barbara and I talk about Change Intelligence, how self-awareness is important for change leaders and what it’s like being a woman working in a male dominant industry.

Barbara mentions the book “Man’s Search for Meaning,” by Dr. Victor Frankl in the rapid fire round as the book she would recommend to anyone to read.

When we spoke about being women in a male dominated industries I mentioned that I was on the committee for Women In Mining South Africa (WiMSA) - where we aim to create networking and mentoring opportunities for professional women working in the Southern African mining industry.

A conversation with Ryk Croukamp from Indigo Skye Transformation

These are the show notes for the podcast On Change, which explores change that works and the people who make it happen.

Episode 02

In this episode I speak to Dr. Ryk Croukamp, owner of Indigo Skye Transformation. I was intrigued by all of Indigo Skye’s service offerings in support of Change Management; concepts like “possibility practitioners,” the use of logotherapy and using narrative practices to drive change are what drew me to have a conversation with this fascinating man.

In this podcast we explore how to drive change through finding meaning in the change and being more human in environments that are driven by non-human demands like being more efficient and effective. Managing and accepting change needs to be much more person-focused and driven by conversations in order for the change to be more readily accepted.

As mentioned in the podcast Indigo Skye partners with the Viktor Frankl Institute.

In the Rapid Fire round Ryk mentioned the book Dialogic Organizational Development, as the book he would recommend everyone to read.

I could not find a video of Ryk racing superbikes, but if you’d like to take up paragliding in the Gauteng area I recommend Skywalk Paragliding school

When we were talking about the reinforcement of change, Ryk mentioned the ADKAR process.

Ryk mentions the Tavistock Institute when we spoke about whether Change Management should be disrupted.
