How the way we talk can change the way we work : seven languages for transformation. /

by Kegan, Robert | Lahey, Lisa Laskow.

Publisher: San Francisco, CA Jossey-Bass 2001Description: ix, 241 p.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 185-186) and index. Contents: Introduction: What do you really want . . . and what will you do to keep from getting it? -- Part One: The internal languages : building the new machine -- 1. From the language of complaint to the language of commitment -- 2. From the language of blame to the language of personal responsibility -- 3. From the language of New Year's resolutions to the language of competing commitments : diagnosing the immunity to change -- 4. From the language of big assumptions that hold us to the language of assumptions we hold : disturbing the immunity to change -- Part Two: The social languages : maintaining and upgrading the machine -- 5. From the language of prizes and praising to the language of ongoing regard -- 6. From the language of rules and policies to the language of public agreement -- 7. From the language of constructive criticism to the language of deconstructive criticism -- Part Three: Carrying on the work -- 8. Running the internal languages -- 9. Running the social languages -- Epilogue: Toward the transformation highway : transcending the limits of the Information Age.Summary: The authors argue that one of the main obstacles to organisational change is the third force of dynamic equilibrium, which too often moves things which have changed back to the way they were. They describe the early chapters of their book as the reflective equivalent of an Outward Bound ropes course : a set of personal experiences for readers to explore how they might work against the tendency to prevent or reverse change. Specifically, they suggest how people can move from the language of complaint to the language of commitment; from the language of blame to the language of personal responsibility; from the language of New Year s resolutions to the language of competing commitments and from the language of big assumptions that hold us to the language of assumptions that we hold.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Improving Indigenous community governance through strengthening indigenous and government organisational capacity /

by Tsey, Komla | Closing the Gap Clearinghouse | McCalman, Janya | Bainbridge, Roxanne | Brown, Cath.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Closing the Gap Clearinghouse 2012Description: PDF.Other title: Closing the Gap Clearinghouse. Resource sheet ; no. 10.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2012 At head of title: Australian Government ; Australian Institute of Health and Welfare ; Australian Institute of Family Studies. AIHW cat. no. IHW 70. Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: Global and local evidence shows that getting governance right is hard work, but critical to improving Indigenous health, wellbeing and quality of life. Good governance is relevant for all seven COAG-endorsed building blocks for overcoming Indigenous disadvantage: early childhood, economic participation, governance and leadership, health, healthy homes, safe communities and schooling. Governance is an issue over which Indigenous communities potentially have significant control, with sound governance structures allowing Indigenous people to effectively make decisions about their long-term goals and objectives for their communities, what kind of development they want and what actions need to be taken to achieve those goals. Good governance is about creating the conditions for legitimate and capable rule and for collective action.Availability: (1)
