The ‘bystander phenomenon’ is a well recognized and studied pattern of human behaviour both within social and organizational settings.
Once we understand more about the bystander phenomenon we can begin to develop solutions to many problems, including concerns about how to galvanize people to work together to solve critical issues threatening our earth, health, wealth and organizations.
Key to understanding why people ‘stand by’ is an appreciation of the hidden social structures that unconsciously shape our behaviour. With this lens we can look for more enabling structures. But what structure best supports engagement, empowerment and action?
All of us have a ‘bystander within’, and all of us have a ‘leader within’ (even a small ‘l’ leader.) Join me and a group of other remarkable people for a series of interactive workshops we’re doing around Australia. I believe leadership is about the inner transformations you help others make. You will learn how to unlock your inner leader and help others change their behaviour. Help us create a no bystanding movement!
