“The twenty-first century will be the “century of complexity”’ – Stephen Hawking
But what does this mean for leadership? Richard Atherton, a coach and consultant will take us through some of the latest thinking in how we might apply lessons from the complexity sciences to the art of leadership.
At a human level, we’ll explore leader-manager tactics for complex change, including:
• Leadership of the complicated versus leadership of the complex
• Leadership as orchestrating conflict
• Leadership as disappointing others
We’ll also take a look at Ralph Stacey’s characterisation of Transformative Causation and the latest developments in Dave Snowden’s Cynefin framework; specifically his ‘liminal Cynefin’ ideas.
