AccsoTalk with Bar Schwartz (Change Management)

Change is normal - not an exceptional situation. Organisations and employees have always been required to be flexible in order to develop and survive. However, the pressure to change has increased noticeably in recent years - due to developments in technology, in the market and ultimately in the world. How can change succeed without overwhelming people? I was able to talk to Bar Schwartz about this at AccsoCon 2024.

Bar helps companies through change processes and also empowers those involved as a coach and trainer. She also describes her experiences and approach in her book " Leadership in a Time of Continuous Technological Change". She also trains transformation leaders and agile coaches, certified by the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile). 

She explains in our interview:

  • Why the transfer of knowledge and experience plays an indispensable role in change and how it can succeed. 
  • How psychological safety succeeds in strengthening the ability to act. 
  • What role playful techniques can play in making change easier for people. 

Bar also addresses the importance of fields of action: The distinction between things that I can influence myself and those that are out of my control. A very simple and practical method for this is the Circle of Control, which I described in the article " Teams aus der Opferfalle locken" (german).
