Will your organisations die, survive or thrive in the 2020s?

February 28, 2020

Leaders of today face increasing complexity.  The old ways of leading are no longer adequate when facing into the rise of complexity.

With a toxic cocktail of rising stress at work, market volatility, disruptive innovations, and spiralling bureaucracy, many leaders feel overwhelm as do many employees .  And yet there are some simple yet powerful tools that can help us reach beyond complexity, and cultivate conditions for our organisations to thrive and our people to come alive.

I have been exploring the ‘new norm’ in leadership for over a decade now, and my latest book, co-authored with Laura Storm, Regenerative Leadership draws together a wealth of experience, practical tools and a depth of case studies on next-stage leadership.

Experiencing and embodying the practicalities of next-stage leadership is vital for our leaders and practitioners.  This is where the 60acres of ancient woodland at the beautiful Springwood Farm, with easy access to London, come in to a world of their own.   In nature, we can learn how to embrace complexity, activate the leadership consciousness we need, and go deep with our personal and collective sharing of what we are noticing as practitioners and leaders in these transformational times.

Time and again I am struck by the power of round-the-fire dialogue where we can get underneath the surface tensions we all face and sense into the underlying root challenges to unlock practical ways forward for future-fit business.

This is why I have paired up with Leadership, Team and Organisational Development Practitioner Darren Hilton to run a special leadership programme with two one-day workshops in nature, with mid-point check-ins and peer-to-peer coaching.  See here for more info, places are limited
