No matter how inspiring your leadership, without attention to the systems of which your organisation is a part, you may not be able to move forward.
I recently participated in a workshop with a highly skilled senior leader working in a global business, who was looking for solutions to some difficult parts of a change management process, which were stuck. I signed a confidentiality agreement so cannot say much more about it than this: the visceral experience of looking at the complex systems of which she was a part, enabled clarity and solutions. It created the possibility of moving forward. It enabled change.
I’ve been reading a lot about inspiring leadership but this workshop made it very clear that leaders – even those with all the skills identified for leading in a VUCA world, need to experience the sometimes surprising insights, truths and clarity that exploring their system offers.
