I'm pretty interested in the changing workplace (see p.20), perhaps because I've been sitting in this chair for nearly 18 years. Three lessons from that time: the electric interweb, or more specifically finally launching a half decent website, changed the nature of The Psychologist overnight; change always takes far longer than you thought it would, and then happens all of a sudden; and the time to push for that change - bringing on board as many people as possible - is when you, personally, think everything is going really rather well.

That last point puts me in mind of Stephen Reicher's piece 'The rules of unruliness', a transcript from his session for us in the Wellcome Trust Arena at Latitude Festival (p.38). Change, revolution, in any area, is enhanced when we embrace the power and passion of the group and when we give careful thought to who is 'we' and who is 'they'. Psychology has too often been the core of an industry telling us 'No you can't'. Now's the time to respond 'Yes we can'.
