Overcoming Challenges 2013
Sarah’s role was around change management to improve Children’s Services. She’d been finding the process challenging, especially as an external consultant. Her relationship with the team was strained and she felt alienated, like an uninvited guest whose job it was to clear up the mess [represented by the untidy room – mid right of image]. The ordered room [next to it] represents what she was trying to achieve. She knew the children were the focus of the need to change the service, but was concerned that the team thought that as a consultant she didn’t care about the them.
Feedback received two weeks later:
I shared the collage with my client, their immediate team, as well as my boss. It has enabled others to the share their interpretation of my collage and what elements have touched them. It was a turning point for me in how I went forward with a client. So thank you for coming and showing us how we could enable creative leadership to impact us. It will stay with me for a very long time.
