Change happens little by little. Barry O’Reilly, the founder and CEO of ExecCamp, shows you how to discover small steps that can lead to big changes in your life. His “Cycle of Unlearning” offers a deceptively simple, effective framework for facilitating individual and organizational transformation. The cycle starts with recognizing that the things you think you know may actually be keeping you from reaching the next breakthrough. O’Reilly’s style is a bit academic, and he’s sometimes repetitive, but he consistently demonstrates the power of his framework to seed organizational transformation when people apply it consciously. Managers, CEOs and leaders of start-ups will find worthy, if basic, lessons here. Implementing them can help your organization break out of a rut – even if you didn’t know it was in one. O’Reilly writes for anyone looking for a new way to move themselves and their companies forward. If that sounds familiar, maybe learning to “unlearn” is your next step.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to use the three elements of the “Cycle of Unlearning,” and
- How to use unlearning to facilitate change, respond to customer concerns, and free your employees to improve and innovate.
