Change: a constant part of modern organisational life

The only permanent thing in this world is impermanence. The illusion that the future can be predicted and controlled is a cause of great organisational and leadership inefficiency today.

Change is a constant part of modern organisational life, and it is vital that organisations are able to manage the impact it has on their leaders. Building on the legacy of existing change management methodologies, our change and complexity leadership solutions are designed to support leaders to develop the knowledge, skills and mindset needed to navigate and lead change productively.

Change and complexity leadership requires numerous skills across many levels. Any programme can be completely tailored to your needs, but below is a description of the areas we can address.

Personal leadership

Successful change and complexity leadership relies on resilience, personal vision and understanding how a leader’s attitude to change can affect others. Our approach involves supporting leaders to, for example: explore their relationship with resilience, change and ambiguity; develop an understanding of what they can influence and control; and develop the personal leadership needed to remain a positive focus amidst uncertainty and pressure.

Relational leadership

Change leaders need to maintain great relationships and demonstrate sensitivity while supporting others to make transitions. Our approach involves supporting leaders to, for example: develop conversational skills to lead others through uncertainty and change; develop relationships that create the psychological stability needed to thrive in uncertainty; and understand how to support the people they lead to manage stress and build resilience.

Team leadership

Supporting teams to thrive while under pressure is a core attribute of change leaders. Our change and complexity leadership solutions may therefore involve, for example: approaches for building team resilience; encouraging innovation and creativity in teams; and supporting team development that is built on trust and the ability to manage conflict productively.

Systemic leadership

At the systems level, leading change through complexity requires leadership that is geared towards developing a proactive, change-oriented culture. Our approach can involve, for example: developing skills for proactive change leadership across systems; building appreciative cultures that celebrate success; and learning how to embed change so it sticks and impacts the culture of an organisation.
