Please share your favourite management development insight or quote.
In a scene from Forrest Gump where he is grappling to make sense of his life he says: “I don't know if we each have a destiny, or if we're all just floatin' around accidental-like on a breeze. But I, I think maybe it's both, maybe both happening at the same time.” To me this captures the mixed, paradoxical and confused feelings we have, but only rarely speak of.
What kind of person are you?
More about you (Short Bio or any other details you’d like people to know)
I’m intrigued by organizational policy and how we think they create change, in particular the effect that these gestures (to me that is what a policy is) are taken up in the specific local situations of the present.
What I’d like from the AMED network is…
For me it is an opportunity to discuss the organisational change the effect that words (written, spoken, heard, and read) have on people as they go about what they do in organisations.
What do you do for your own development?
I go and speak with interesting people that I wouldn’t normally speak with during the course of my normal job.
