The level of complexity in the emerging paradigm of the NOW is challenging leaders to embrace an increasing complexity of mind. Kegan and Lahey (2009) suggest that we are in over our heads and are being called to a new understanding of what it is to lead, to follow and engage in purposeful activity.
This key note explores the nature of what is being called forth from the context and what are the ways that leaders can develop the capacity to sense the emergent trends and respond to them as adaptive challenges rather than technical things to be fixed.
Drawing on the Transforming Experience Framework developed by the Grubb Institute (UK) the address will explore the resources of our experience of connectedness to Source, Context, System and Person as we find, make and take roles to serve the purpose of our different organisational systems.
The address will conclude by opening areas for organisational exploration as assumptions are challenged, new resources revealed and potential unleashed.
