|Leading Sustainable Transformation|
June 2-4, 2015
Join Peter Senge and Darcy Winslow for this 3-day leadership workshop and learn how to successfully and collaboratively make sustainability a core value in your organization, supply chain and community. The overall focus of this workshop is joint capacity building in service of developing new capabilities for generative partnerships and collaboration for systemic change.
Leading for Sustainable Transformation offers less lecture time, and more time for hands-on development of your leadership skills. You will strengthen your systems thinking skills so you can switch from reactive problem solving to initiating and creating new futures.
Collaboration is the human face of systemic change. Effective collaboration in addressing truly complex problems requires more than good intentions. People and institutions working effectively across (intra- and inter-organizational) boundaries need new capabilities which few organizations have: building trust among diverse players and shared visions that transcend individual organizations' interests, fostering shared understanding of complex realities, developing shared strategies, the ability to observe and reflect on what is working and not and to adjust thinking and action. In short, effective collaboration is an ongoing learning process that demands an unusual degree of openness – of mind, heart and will - to challenge taken-for granted assumptions and ways of operating, and cultural norms. Sometimes, what will most limit progress will be the very behaviors that have made organizations effective in the past.
Leaders who want to build their capacity to lead change efforts, from wherever they sit within their organization, are invited to attend. The workshop will blend personal capacity building and application to real issues through a series of practice sessions using tools for systems thinking and collective learning. Leading for Sustainable Transformation will be both personal and collective: people learning how to work better together by working together to achieve common goals that otherwise might be impossible.
