Join us if these are questions you would like to explore:
· When everything is uncertain, how do we know what to do?
· How can we create strategies which are adaptive, responsive and take us in this direction of what works?
· How can we create a culture in which it is ok to not know the answer on how to move forward?
· How can we shift from highlighting only our successes to valuing the learning from failures?
You will leave with:
· A foundational understanding of what we mean when talking about working in a complex system and what this means for how to make change happen—within our organisations, in our communities and in our activism.
· Tools and tactics to help you lead and take action differently.
· Build your resilience, adaptiveness and confidence to respond to ongoing uncertainty and ambiguity.
· Connection and community with social change peers. We aim to provide you with experience and community that can sustain you as you return to do the hard work.
Over 15 years experience of working in communities and voluntary sector in Glasgow. Experienced facilitator with a particular interest in how we use good process to work on issues of social justice, equity, and structural, systemic change. Bitten by the complexity bug several years ago, I’ve been learning all I can ever since. I’m in an ongoing inquiry as to what this emerging, but radical, new field can tell us about how social change happens and how we can put it into practice
