Social Constructivism – Changing Together 

 November 25, 2014

By  bem_admin

Social constructivism is an emerging approach to change, which encourages change, and learning, through the people, who may be your customers, employees, community etc. It’s easy to identify those who don’t buy into this approach. Observable corporate traits include the desire to maintain control, the degree of closure in minds, a stagnant environment lacking regeneration, a leader who hides behind the people, and lack of communication in change.

Social Constructivism – Changing Together

introduction

Social constructivism is an emerging approach to change, which encourages change, and learning, through the people, who may be your customers, employees, community etc. It’s easy to identify those who don’t buy into this approach. Observable corporate traits include the desire to maintain control, the degree of closure in minds, a stagnant environment lacking regeneration, a leader who hides behind the people, and lack of communication in change.

Getting returns (business outcomes, adoption of the change, mitigated risks) on change efforts quite often appear through minds of others, if we are open enough to see and hear it.

Work with the organizations which build their next strategy through the people, the college which designs its new curriculum through and with the community, the business which asks the people what the corporate culture should demonstrate, the local government which asks what the community centre needs, the population that says what the encyclopedia of today should contain, the leader who asks for input into a solution – and feel the difference with business results.

Why not change your approach to Social Constructivism – provide the framework, and watch the future unfold in unanticipated ways.
