The Art of Hosting: Exploring a Framework for Working with Complexity

Tuesday, April 30, 2013 - 11:00am - 12:15pm

This TeleSeminar will explore the Cynefin framework, a model used to help organizations and communities make good decisions and create useful actions especially when working with complexity. We will cover some theory of complex decisions and explore various forms of leadership needed in different contexts. This will lead us into a discussion of the role of participatory leadership and dialogue based leadership in addressing complex challenges.
