Show Topic:
If you were an anthropologist studying your work environment, what would you learn? What is your organization’s culture? How do you create belonging within the organization?

What is the lingo, or language, of the work environment that new hires may have difficulty understanding or integrating into? Do you use mentors and what are those mentors’ role within the organization?

When we view an organization from a social science perspective, much is revealed about the organization itself, including aspects that can make it successful and what may be its Achilles heel.

In this episode of HR Power Hour, join host Tawny Alvarez from Verrill as she talks with Andi Simon, a pioneering corporate anthropologist and author of three books, including her newest, “Women Mean Business,” about how she brings the tools of anthropology into businesses to help the organization see, feel, and think in new ways.

Ashley Goodall – The Problem with Change

Download the Show Audio Here

Show Topic:

For decades, change—and its more sleekly packaged version, “disruption”—have been seen as essential tools for the growth of any business.

That’s a huge problem, argues Ashley Goodall in his ground-breaking new book. While shaking things up is the first thing a new leader is expected to do, and while generations of executives have been taught that change is an unalloyed good, the reality on the ground is very different.

Change isn’t always good, and it often fails to achieve what we expect it to (resulting in yet more change)—and a big part of the reason for this is that change makes it harder or people to do their jobs.

About The Guest:

Ashley Goodall is a leadership expert who has spent his career exploring large organizations from the inside, most recently as an executive at Cisco. He is the co-author of Nine Lies About Work, which was selected as the best management book of 2019 by Strategy + Business and as one of Amazon’s best business and leadership books of 2019.

Prior to Cisco, he spent fourteen years at Deloitte as a consultant and as the Chief Learning Officer for Leadership and Professional development. His book, The Problem with Change, publishes May 7, 2024.
