Reflection questions – change

Use these questions to orientate you thinking as you watch and read about Minimising threat and maximising reward. Feel free to add your own questions.

How is change handled in your organisation? Are people engaged or told to change?

Which CORE elements are most sensitive in your culture?

Which elements are creating the most threat?

What rewards can you emphasis?

 Are people able to take control of their job and have choice about how they work within a shared purpose?

 Are people clear about what is expected of them?

How much control do people have about how they adopt new behaviours?

 How easy is it to implement changes in the organisation? From the leadership on down, how is everybody involved in making these changes?

Have you created a plan to embed the change?
