Workshop on Transformative Leadership in a Changing Climate, Saturday 22 June, 2013, Oslo
If we see transformative change as a necessary response to global climate change, we have to know its processes intimately. Transformations that respond to adaptive challenges involve fundamental shifts in perspective and meaning. In order to be able to design, catalyze, foster or lead such shifts, leaders need to recognize stages, depth and width of the process, identify patterns of systemic pushback, and know what to do with immunities to change, as well as how to handle the usual resistances and escape mechanisms.
For those who are interested in learning more about leadership for change, we offer a one-day intensive workshop directly following the international conference on “Transformation in a Changing Climate” at the University of Oslo .
The workshop will lead participants into experiencing transformative processes first hand and head-on. We will look at how our evolving worldviews frame the problem in need of transformation, how to shift polarized perspectives, and unlock movement towards solutions.
The work offers insights into the more concealed mechanisms and stages of transformation and on how to detect and overcome hidden immunities to change and adaptive pushback in yourself and others. Other expected results include insights into personal recurring patterns and on how to restructure seemingly fixed conditions. The links between personal and global trans-formation, and leadership, will become clear.
The workshop is delivered by a team of international professionals in the field of transformation and leadership development: Abigail Lynam, Geoff Fitch and Anne Caspari.
