Apathy, Empathy and Sympathy

Apathy, Empathy and Sympathy

November 5, 2018

As Change practitioners, we are continually seeking to improve ourselves and influence an outcome. When we are with people the exchange of information varies between frustration, knowledge, innovation, and value.

We, humans, tend to talk about ourselves (even when we don't intend to). By understanding Apathy, Empathy and Sympathy when we engage and listen to others, we are forearming ourselves against becoming dragged into the problems we are trying to resolve. Being mindful of these perspectives actually helps those we are engaging with, as much as we are trying to help ourselves...

We have collected our learnings from the field and shared them for likeminded people working in Change, Asset Management and Management Systems. We hope that you will gain insights from our experiences. Each podcast is conveyed through the eyes of the person sharing the experience, not just an academic account of what occurred. These are real-life experiences and approaches. 

Listening to People

Listening to People

Listening to people sounds straightforward...That's because it is! The secret to change and influence is to be able to "read between the lines" and understand the "What, How, When and Why" of the conversation. This episode considers a framework of consideration for your next engagement.

What is a Management System?

What is a Management System?

November 1, 2018

A "Management System" or "System of Work" or in the most basic terms "How we get things done around here!" is the backbone of any organization. Without a Management System of some description, you are relying on luck! A Management System is the foundation stone for both Change Management and Asset Management. A Management System is a form of assurance. You don't have to go to great expense or achieve certification to achieve value from a Management System!

This episode is dedicated to simplifying "Asset Management". Understanding "Asset Management" vs "The Management of Assets" is a must when engaging change in an asset-intensive organization. Differentiating the two will provide clarity to stakeholders and promote trust and respect. When people understand their role in asset management, especially supporting functions (i.e. Finance, Human Resources, Engineering, Legal and Commercial) there is an instant capability lift that generates collaboration, positive challenge and converging conversations. Asset Management is a great way in which to influence change. Change driven on value will always win against change driven on cost alone!
