As part of our labor of love to help rebels and change makers create positive change at work we just released a video program featuring interviews with brilliant experts on how to develop the skills and capacity to move ideas forward. It's like a graduate seminar in organizational change, but with more attitude and immediate, practical applications. Here's more about the program.

Here's a preview of the program, with highlights from the outstanding speakers.

"The single most important thing a change agent can do is reduce the anxiety of others." 
Maria DeCarvalho, executive coach and Episcopal priest

What we're watching

While we usually share what we've been reading, this month we've been watching documentaries, rich in inspiration and ideas for what it takes to create change.
  • The Hunting Ground: about sexual assaults on college campuses and how two college women are creating important change despite the silence of so many college administrators. The documentary airs on CNN on Nov. 22.
  • Winter on Fire: a dramatic account of Ukraine citizens' 2014  protests that drove Ukraine's President Viktor Yanukovych from power.  When people mobilize for a cause they love, remarkable things can happen.
  • Call Me Lucky: looks at what led Barry Crimmins to become a political satirist and passionate political activist. Pay close attention to his mid 1990s Senate testimony about child pornography chat rooms on AOL. The questioning by the AOL lawyers and U.S.  Senators are reminders why good rebels need to learn as much as we can about communications, conflict, and issue framing.

How change is changing

Check out this excellent keynote speech, "How Change Is Changing," by Change Agents Worldwide's Simon Terry to the Change Management Institute.
 

A final thought

As the Thanksgiving holiday nears here in the United States, I'd like to thank you for choosing to create positive change rather than live a life of complacency.  The world needs us more than ever. 

With naked hearted love,
Lois
