Leadership for Systems Change

Why this course?

In response to a noticeable need, Chad Foulkes and Geoff Brown’s work has become increasingly focused on helping leaders work with the complexity that surrounds them.

In this course, you will be supported to improve your performance as a leader. You will learn how to develop emergent strategies and initiatives that get to the root cause of complex-system problems. You will walk out of each session with practical tools and processes that can be applied to your work the next day.

In this six-session course you will:

• Tackle and make progress on a real-life work challenge that you bring to the course

• Re-imagine leadership and apply practical strategies to support you to lead and plan in times of high uncertainty and complexity

• Work with stories to evaluate system-change initiatives and make better decisions

• Apply a core set of principles and practices to make your system-change efforts more adaptive and resilient

• More effectively use a range of digital platforms for collaboration and technologies that you can apply in your work right away!
