The New Era of Change

How to navigate in complexity and ‘frozen’ business contexts

Organizations become more and more complex. Managers perceive themselves as being stuck in the middle: realizing change and business ‘traction’ is a burden… Therefore, leaders need to be equipped with new skills, mindsets and practices to ‘defrost’ business situations.

Your 5 burning questions?
— Question 1 —
How can we help managers, facilitators, leaders to cope with the growing complexity (and difficulty) of their job?
— Question 2 —
What are ‘practical’ modes of ‘change intervention’? How do you steer ànd be inclusive? How to build ‘traction’ without stumbling in endless conversations and ‘analysis paralysis’?
— Question 3 —
How can you influence without having the power or position?
— Question 4 —
How can people learn to navigate and grow influence in the complex interplay of stakeholders, ‘matrixified’ leadership and vagueness?
— Question 5 —
Difficult times take a lot of energy…how can we help people to guard and proactively ‘manage’ their energy and workability?
