This November my wife Maria and I will be at Sustainable Brands London where we will be running a workshop Holonomic Thinking: Upgrading Our Leadership Skills and Systems Thinking for the New Economy:
Confronted with rapid escalation of complexity in the world, business leaders and brand managers increasingly feel that they are no longer equipped to deal with the new economic paradigm which is emerging and being co-created. Many executives are continuing to use frameworks and methodologies designed decades ago, but this approach is no longer working. It is not always the case that we need to change our methodologies. What we need is a new way of seeing and thinking that allows us to be mindful and truly make sense of complex situations.
Holonomic thinking upgrades our way of seeing by expanding our mode of consciousness from the analytical to the intuitive; one that not only is able to understand the parts of a system, but at a deeper, intuitive level of perception, is also able to understand brands as the relationships and processes within that system.
This workshop will appeal to professionals who are looking to deepen their leadership skills relating to sustainability, strategy, branding, systems thinking, creativity and dialogue. It will include both powerful practical experiential exercises and case studies which practitioners can take back and implement with their own organisations and communities.
This is a three hour workshop which will take place on November 3rd. It is a deep dive into Holonomics and holonomic thinking, and will be our only workshop in the UK this year.
We are both really looking forward to the three day event which starts with six workshops, three in the morning and three in the afternoon. The next two days will see plenary presentations, break out sessions and plenty of networking opportunities, as well as the innovation open, a great opportunity for new start ups to showcase their ideas and gain global exposure to the world’s top brands and thought leaders in sustainability.
And finally, Maria and I are very happy to be able to offer all friends of Holonomics Education a special 20% discount for those of you wish to attend. Please get in touch with us via our contact page to find out more and for the discount code.
