Working in a Changing Environment

Late last year I had the pleasure of working with  several large groups at one of Hong Kong’s tertiary institutions. They had been struggling with change and how to work with it productively. Much to their amusement I suggested we do some workshop around the concept of a Zoo and how animals respond to change. So we used the Organizational Zoo metaphor approach which helped them look at the behaviors needed for successful change in a very non threatening manner.   They developed their own “change zoo” with preferred and needed behaviors for change and developed techniques to help one another exhibit these behaviors.  And believe it or not ….they had fun!!!!!
