Vikas’s topic at Spark the Change: Homeostasis: the Frenemy of Change
Spark Theme: Unleashing people
Diving further into Homeostasis: the Frenemy of Change
As Change agents we all know how hard it is to produce sustainable change in people and systems. What we don’t realise though, is that resistance to change is a ‘feature’, not a ‘bug’. This feature is the phenomenon of ‘Homeostasis’ – the characteristic of any good, functional system to remain stable and not spiral out of control when subjected to change.
Stability is foundational to our survival. But change is foundational to our vitality. We’ve traded in stability with Homeostasis at the expense of changeability. However, once we understand this phenomenon, how it works and comes in the way of producing change successfully and the critical need it fulfils, we can then make an ally out of it. At Spark the Change, 24-25 Feb 2018 in Pune, India, in this session, you can learn how to turn Homeostasis from an enemy to a friend, and be able to produce sustainable change.
If you as a Spark participant are keen to
- Understand how the phenomenon of Homeostasis blocks change
- Be able to analyse needs met by current state / fear produced by future state in any change challenge
- Be able to design implementations that take this into account and overcome the resistance
then this is the session for you to be in at Spark the Change in Pune, India on the 24-25 February, 2018 with Vikas Bhatia!
