Leading in a Changing World: Working with change and complexity

Leaders have always operated in a world of change but the bar has been raised. Rapid, widespread and difficult change is no longer the exception. It’s the rule.

This workshop with two of the world’s foremost coaching and leadership practitioners addresses the greatest challenge for leaders today – leading change in complex times. It is designed to support the difficult yet crucial work of leading change in any type of organisation and moves beyond the rational and linear models that we have relied on in the past to finding new ways of working with complexity, chaos and uncertainty.

Learning to think systemically, learning to sit with the anxiety that change evokes and being able to act when the way forward is not clear are essential skills for leaders today. The potential for new ways of thinking and working lies between the linear and the chaotic. It is the space at the edge of chaos where the possibilities for emergent creativity exist. Operating in these spaces has implications for leaders, researchers and coaches. This session will explore both what the research says and what the workshop leaders have learnt from assisting leaders to develop their capacity to both survive and thrive in these high stress environments.

If you are currently working on one or multiple change initiatives, this workshop will be invaluable. The workshop will cover:

- What the research says about complex decision making and leading change
- Learning to sit with chaos, uncertainty and the anxiety it evokes
- Leading the people side of change
- Thinking systemically and creatively in complex times
- Asking the right questions
- Dealing with the challenges of a high-stress environment
- How to coach leaders to lead through change and complexity.
