Dr Annie Gascoyne - Part 2

Season 3 Episode 26

Or...all about Organisational Flexibility.
I’m starting with a quote from Walt Whitman today –

“I am large, I contain multitudes."

I think this quote encapsulates the complexity of both organisations AND the people within them

Here's part 2 of my conversation with Dr Annie Gascoyne. In part one we heard about Annie’s fascinating career history, how she’s worked in radically different organisations and she talked about pivotal moments, like going back to Uni and how she found herself in the surprising position of embarking upon a PhD.

In this episode we’re diving into that same PhD research - you’ll hear Annie introduce and expand on organisational flexibility as a concept and its component processes – which I think is highly relevant in these extraordinary times. I think you’ll find that organisational flexibility provides a useful and practical lens to consider the challenges that all organisations face.  

In the shownotes you'll find two useful diagrams, one representing psychological flexibility and the other, organisational flexibility.
