When thinking about this blog I googled this iconic 1960’s song because it seemed to be relevant for today.  It turns out Bob Dylan thought so too.  He has written a 2018 version.

Lately, I’ve been working with my friend and colleague, Kellie Donohue, on a culture management session we are holding in September.  The purpose of our session is to discuss changes that have recently taken place in the regulatory and social environments and share ideas about their implications for organizations and the people who work in them.

We think our session is important because the changes taking place establish a different expectation for physical, social and psychological well-being at work.  At the individual level, it means incorporating new expectations into our thinking and action.  At the organizational level, it is a clear signal for seeing culture management as a key strategic priority with the same level of risk management as all the other major operational priorities.

Kellie and I will be talking about change factors, the priorities for organizations, and will also touch on managing risk including from the perspective of supervisors in a world where they are accountable for psychological safety on the job.  You can register for our breakfast seminar at:


P.S.  Curious about the original version of Dylan’s song?    https://youtu.be/e7qQ6_RV4VQ
