John-Paul Flintoff: How to change the world 1

John-Paul Flintoff




How to change the world 1

Of course you would. There are plenty of things you would change right now, if you were given a magic wand.

After all, the world is desperately in need of improvement. So much so that sometimes we lie awake at night, turning over for hours on end as we worry about it…

During the day, we huff and curse at the many smaller things that seem wrong…

And in sunnier moments we allow ourselves to dream, conjuring parallel worlds that seem entirely delightful.

Many people don’t believe changing the world is even possible.

It really is!

Do you want to know how to:

  1. identify the specific things that you most want to change?
  2. devise a strategy that’s both realistic and exciting?
  3. create specific, achievable steps to put the strategy into effect?
  4. handle the obstacles that will get in your way – many of them in your own head?
  5. find potential allies?
  6. communicate with them, using the techniques of a sales pro, the passion of a campaigner, your own good humour and absolute integrity?

I’ve run live, interactive sessions on How To Change The World on four continents, with audiences of as many as 5,000 people.

“Amazing. We thought you would be quite good but had no idea how good. The exercises were a great way for people to engage with each other, and taught us a lot about ourselves”

“Like any meaningful work on how to make change happen, it has one foot in [Flintoff’s] own experience. That gives it a richness, a humour, and a depth that I really value” – Rob Hopkins, Transition Culture

“I don’t know how he managed to avoid the usual cliches” – Rachel Botsman, author of What’s Mine Is Yours
