Foundation course: 
Designing Change

2 weeks | Canceled

How might we intentionally design for change that benefits those we serve? 

Change is not an easy process. With only 30% of organisational transformations succeeding, it is imperative that we look at what we can do to pro-actively attend to change within our organisations.  Our capacity to navigate change involves understanding the change journey AND then designing for change. 

For this course, we will break down different components of the change process starting with “who” we are serving. Michel Bachmann in his Medium article, suggests evolving Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle around Why/How/What by placing the Who at its core and depicting it as a spiral rather than concentric circles to reflect its dynamic nature. This major shift from Why to Who enables us to design change that is relevant to who we intend it for.


Designing change that espouses the Platinum rule: “Do unto others as they would want done to them" encourages us to move away from providing transactional reciprocity to deep attunement and empathy. Coupled with knowing the change journey of who we are serving, we are able to find the right levers that can amplify change.

What people say about us

Irem Tumer


"The training was the perfect way to equip our team with tools to overcome challenges of organizing in a decentralised and value-driven way. Rich and Nati guided the journey with commitment and positivity at every step and we supported us with their vast experience and knowledge. The atmosphere of safety and trust they created was inspiring and set the tone for our follow-up plans."

“Participating in The Hum's course brought home and demystified questions of what new forms of governance and organising for change can look and feel like. Their way of grounding theory into practice through simple and clear language, applied learning opportunities and sharing examples from the field encouraged me to try new things out in my own organisational context." 


"I have come away from the course understanding that deciding to have a flat structure was just the first step for us. There is a lot of work to be done to build the structures and processes that we need to thrive. The Hum has given us the tools and the inspiration to help us on this journey. I feel much more confident about trying new ways of organising."
