Description

Navigating Uncertainty:

Tools & practices for steering your organisation through Complexity

A one-day introduction to more horizontal ways of working that bring out the best in you and those around you



In complex and uncertain times, it is tempting to reach for familiar approaches that worked in the past. Yet the problems don’t go away – they re-emerge in a different form and we find we are no further forward. What worked in the past no longer works in our uncertain and complex world.

We need a different way. We need to learn to work with the uncertainty, let go of old habits, cease striving for control and perfection and tap into authenticity and flow. Organisations must be able to respond to diversity, adapt to change and create a healthy system. This requires trust, collaboration, decentralised decision-making, co-creative innovation, stakeholder alignment, continuous learning and more.

These are not things you can simply “do”. You cannot change yourself overnight. It is about trying, learning and growing up – a lifetime’s journey. This workshop will help you on the journey, by introducing a selection of tried-and-tested tools and practices to help you and your organisation navigate ambiguity & complexity.



You will learn:
  • tools to enhance your listening and perception skills;

  • ways to make your organisation more adaptable to change;

  • the nature of steward-leadership in healthy systems;

  • skills of perspective coordination in managing complexity; and

  • how to deal with conflict and relationships constructively

This workshop is an introduction - it can lead to our more in depth training course (under development).



Who is it for?

The workshop is for people in organisations:

  • battling with stifled productivity, disengagement, lack of innovation;

  • dreaming of tapping into the collective intelligence of those around them; or

  • who are simply curious about new ways of working.

It is for entrepreneurs, mavericks and leaders at all levels.



Who is leading it?

This participatory workshop will be lead by two of the co-founders of the Human Organising Co, a collaborative venture set up to promote more human, effective and creative ways of working.

François Knuchel is an experienced trainer & facilitator, specialising in intercultural management, new paradigm leadership and lean business design. His experience of circle management methods in Japan has influenced his passion for re-imagining how we work together.

Patrick Andrews is a lawyer and facilitator. His helps his clients, who range from hi-tech start-ups to well-established charities, navigate the law and their relationships with others while holding onto their values. Patrick is a visiting lecturer at London’s Imperial College.
