Building systems leadership capacity in a thinking environment workshop - Thinking about Complexity

  • Learning and Development Leads
  • Equality and Diversity Leads
  • OD Practitioners
  • Leadership Programmes and GMTS Grads Alumni

Learning Outcomes:

You will be able to recognise the nature of your own ‘wicked’ challenges and apply techniques to inspire, engage, motivate and lead others when the way ahead is unclear.

During the workshop we will:

  • Clarify the limitations of mechanical thinking and the basis of systems thinking.
  • Identify what a ‘wicked’ issue is, based on Keith Grint’s work.
  • Experience being part of a complex adaptive system.
  • Explore how to lead in the face of complexity, and how to make shifts happen in the system by using Vision, Values and Dialogue (VVD) from Peter Senge’s work.
  • Start applying VVD to broader NHS challenges.
  • Identify the motivations driving social behaviour, using David Rock’s SCARF model.
  • Take time to consider individual wicked issues and to apply learning from the event to enhance understanding and approach and;
  • Do this in a Thinking Environment, using some of the applications of Nancy Kline’s Time To Think approach.

Pre-work (Optional):

  • Read ‘Wicked Problems and Clumsy Solutions: the Role of Leadership’ – Keith Grint
  • Identify an example of a ‘wicked issue’ that you or those around you are grappling with locally
