    With Carolyn Coughlin and Patrice Laslett of Cultivating Leadership, and Marie Pace of The Barcelona International Peace Center

    As our world is becoming increasingly interconnected and interdependent, it is also becoming increasingly volatile and unpredictable. Along with this change, practitioners have been confronted with the ways that many of the tools and ways of thinking in common use simply don’t work in complex contexts.

    As complexity becomes a new kind of normal, and as the ways we work are changing, it is more and more a strategic imperative for leaders everywhere to be able to navigate this territory with greater agility, creativity and resilience. Those that can do so bring a distinct comparative advantage to their work. This workshop is designed to deliver just that. The Complexity Fitness Workshop draws from thinking and practices in complex adaptive systems, adult development, neuroscience, somatics and mindfulness.

    This workshop is for leaders and leadership coaches who are looking to become better able to thrive in the complexities currently challenging organisations and our world. Whether you are familiar with the ideas of complexity or just becoming acquainted, we will invite you to bring a personal challenge that you can work on while learning handy tools to help you explore the problem. By exploring the contexts in which we find ourselves, how we show up in them and act differently in them, we can make dramatic progress on challenges that we have been battling for some time.


You can tell just by sitting in a meeting who has been on the programme by their reactions and the nature of the questions they ask.
