Change Fatigue (ENERVATIVE CHANGE ON JOB SATISFACTION): The Impact of Enervative Change on Job Satisfaction

Résumé :

Leaders today face a macro-environment filled with an
unprecedented level of active “stressors” (e.g. technological
advancement, increased globalization, nomadic workforce, economic
shifts, increased competition, increase in overall pace, increased
diversity). The presence of these macro-environmental stressors
suggests that most organizations will have to adjust (change) to meet
these conditions in such a manner that will either be continuous or so
frequent as to seem continuous.

Aesthetic Practice: The Power of Artistic Expression to
Transform Organizations

Résumé :

This paper explores a case study investigating a new approach to
organization development called Aesthetic Practice. Aesthetic
Practice is a process in which artistic media are used to engage
organizational members in collaborative learning, sensemaking and
change. Aesthetic Practice is developed by drawing on the synergy
between four established theoretical streams: artistic integration, the
expansive qualities of metaphor, collective co-creation, and
experiential learning. The outcomes of the intervention are also
analyzed, both in a theoretical sense for their usefulness and value
and with regard to practical application in the case. This paper
discusses six outcomes from the use of aesthetic practice, including,
sensemaking, embracing complexity, articulation of values, creating
shared vision, expression of organizational emotion, and
breakthroughs in knowledge.
