WEBINAR 23rd Sept: How physical space can shape an organisation.
We are excited to be a part of the OD Network Europe Carnival of Disruption; a carnival of events running from 21-25 September 2020. The whole carnival of disruption is online so you join us from wherever you prefer!
Our session: Let’s get physical!
When Kurt Lewin theorised that behaviour is the product of the person and their environment, he was not thinking about physical space. But he might as well have been. The space around us consistently influences how we think, feel, and behave.
But what does that have to do with organisations? Organisations, like human beings, have a physical body that interacts with the environment to influence organisational life. The organisation’s physical body is where its narrative and actions are played out. How business gets done depends in part on where business gets done.
We will use embodiment practices to uncover the power and importance of attending to our surroundings as part of holistic change, and we will discuss how organisations across the world are taking physical space into account, especially in the time of COVID. Finally, we will attempt to answer the question of the moment: Now that we are all working from home, why do organisations need an office?
