Strive is the second book written by Dr Kiran Chitta, a leading business psychologist based in London with over twenty years of international corporate and consulting experience. Organisational agility is all too often a topic which is approached purely academically or through a dry business lens. Dr Chitta reviews much of the existing psychological literature and in addition he shares a profoundly personal perspective, anchored in his life and work. His case material is reflective, therapeutic and authentic. It will resonate with those who are looking for a balance of academic rigour, ideas, honesty and actionable principles derived from real work. When speaking to the author, he comments, “I wrote this book because I was extremely keen that the way organisations digitalise needs to have positive impact on the workforce in the UK and in countries around the world. I was also noticing that the rate of change within organisations is not keeping up with the accelerating demands of digital transformation. This led me to consider the key things that need to be done by individuals, leaders and organisations to make the best of a digital future. Agility is all about winning in a digital world, in both a business and a human sense.” Kiran was born in India, grew up as a British citizen in the UK and has lived and worked around the world, including in the Middle East and Asia Pacific regions. He started his life as an orphan in Mumbai. Kiran’s early life experiences nudged him towards his future as a psychologist. His passion for people and business agility has led him to write Strive. Dr Kiran Chitta is an organisational psychologist with a passion for change. Kiran has helped clients around the world having lived and worked in the UK, US, Middle East and Asia. He has degrees from the University of Oxford, University of Manchester and the Metanoia Institute. He is a Chartered Psychologist and the author of Change Agility: Leadership, Transformation and the Pursuit of Purpose.
