In today’s complex and uncertain world, the purpose of any organization necessarily becomes the growing of the inner agility of its people.

I help people and organizations do that.

 

We live in a volatile, unpredictable, complex, and ambiguous world (so-called “VUCA”). In such a world, we must change not only our operational and delivery tactics. We must change the way we think, the way we sense, the way we relate. This requires not just a new set of organizational “apps”. It requires an upgrade in the human operating system itself.

It is such an upgrade that defines “leadership” in a VUCA world.

No longer a leadership defined solely by what happens at the top. No longer a leadership that is characterized by “telling”, not by “decisiveness”—not even by “who goes first” or “who eats last.”

Rather, a leadership which arises anywhere and everywhere there is a need—within an organization, within a team, within a partnership of any sort—for someone (or someones) to make sense of the complexity around them in ways that provide access to effective action for themselves and others. A leadership that arises not from what we are doing, but from how we are thinking, and who we are being.

I work with individuals, teams, and organizations to help them upgrade the quality and complexity of leaderful sensemaking—within themselves and in their relationships with others—in order to upgrade their capacity for effective and congruent action in the face of the volatile, unpredictable and complex situations which constitute the very nature of 21st century life and work.
