A Study On Behavior


After hearing Robert Kegan speak at the Next Practice Institute this fall, I eagerly dove into one of his seminal works, an incredibly insightful and practical guide to understanding what it takes to truly change our behavior – as individuals and as teams – in the workplace. The book is filled with case studies and exercises that highlight the importance of digging deep, really deep, into our habits of thinking, speaking and acting to understand their origin. Once light is shed on how our values and belief systems evolved to protect us (our immunity) we can begin the hard and important work of rewriting our narrative, one that serves our true goals and interests.
