NewWicked Problems and the Complex World
The modern world is fast paced and dynamic, and approaches that used to work for us don’t work anymore. Some issues are just too complex, too subject to unpredictable influences, how can leaders ensure these issues are addressed effectively?
This course will examine the complex and ambiguous world that we live and work in, and practice developing effective responses to these challenging situations.
This course is suitable for current leaders, board members, senior executives, senior managers, line managers with challenging teams and anyone who aspires to take on a leadership role. This is especially useful for those tasked with leading complex cross-cutting projects.
Participants will be able to recognise the nature of their own ‘wicked’ challenges and apply techniques to inspire, engage motivate and lead others when the way ahead is unclear.
