Show #122: Humanising the Technology Department

Special Guest: Kim Paterson and Ian Goddard of The Catalyst Partnership

This is a story about two individuals, deep within one of the world’s oldest living bureaucracies, who catalysed an intrepreneurial venture that has the potential to unleash people’s deepest passions and gifts and direct them toward transforming their organisation.

Through the years we had invested in traditional approaches to leadership development and organisational change. Most L&D Professionals will be familiar with these and they are mostly:

Alignment
21st Century Leadership
Behaviours
Strategy
Although we’d had some success with these interventions, in terms of initial feedback, most of what we term ‘sheep dip’ programs produced little in the way of lasting improvement.

We were searching for, not just for something different, but a burning need for a developmental strategy that would produce significant and lasting change.
