The complexity we face in the world right now is pushing us to ask some new questions about how we act, what our organizations do and how to respond:
How can we thrive in complexity and shifting systems?
How can we create initiatives and socially innovate within complexity?
How do we work effectively with relationships, difference, real diversity?
What is the leadership needed now in working with complexity and chaos?
Ontario is rich with social innovators and pioneers of new ways of doing things. The complexity can be overwhelming - halting our learning, making us feel stuck, tense, and even perpetuating fragmentation and conflict - with and among those who are also trying to make a better world a practical reality.
How we can use methods and practices of collaborative and participatory leadership to connect social innovation efforts, learn from one another and address the complexity of the challenges facing communities and organizations today?
This is for people who:
are not shying away from all the work it takes to make a better world a practical reality
see that making a better world cannot happen in isolation
want to increase their capacity to learn
need to work with diverse voices and invite real diversity into their work
are ready to develop their own capacity, and the capacity of those doing good work around us
