Disruptive behaviour can make a difference

More and more business innovation comes from young people looking at things from a different perspective and delivering change - how do we attract and keep the best young talent, and enable them to make a difference?

Appreciating and hearing different views and opinions isn’t always a cultural norm. Young people used to be seen and not heard. However in a fast paced and increasing technologically advanced environment, young people have the answers.

So how can we promote an atmosphere where positive disruption is something that people understand as means of generating new evolutionary ideas?

Disruption is usually unwelcome. It represents conflict, chaos, and potential danger. We discourage disruptive behaviour in our homes and our societies, often favouring passivity and compliance instead.

But disruption can be a positive — sometimes vital — catalyst for change. It can challenge old assumptions, ignite conversations, activate authorities and expose new possibilities. Disruption can shed a unique light on difficult issues, giving a fresh urgency and perspective to the challenges of our global community.

Pause for thought…

Does your organisation welcome positive disruption in any way?

Who are the positive disruptors in your organisation, and how are they seen by others?

Has positive disruption led to change, and what can you enable, to bring about more of this?
