Change management isn’t easy, and change leadership is even harder. Sometimes you get stuck, and you don't know what to do next. The greatest planning, courage, and commitment won’t guarantee that your change efforts will succeed. Do you want to see your work culture change for good this time? Do you want to learn to be truly, sustainably, innovative?

You need three things to create the future you imagine:

  1. An understanding about complex systems and how they change—and why they don't.
  2. Tools to see the transformative energy that is locked inside the system, and how to get it unblocked.
  3. A change method that generates hope, rather than sucking energy out of people and processes. 

Glenda and Laura will be your guides on this journey. Dr. Glenda Eoyang, founding Executive Director of Human Systems Dynamics Institute, is a pioneer in the theory and practice of applied complexity. Laura Williams is the Director of Strategy at the Institute for Community and Adolescent Resilience. She has dedicated her life to support people through complex, systemic change. Both are certified professionals of human systems dynamics (HSD), and they will use HSD to help you navigate the challenges of change you face today.   

In this Adaptive Action Lab, you will focus on your own challenges with change and:

  • Learn about complex change and how to leverage its power.
  • Hear stories about how others learned to see, understand, and influence change for people, teams, organizations, and communities.
  • Explore opportunities to turn resistance into support.
  • Bring every voice into the conversation—and action—of change.
  • Develop a sustainable approach to initiate, manage, adapt, and sustain change over time.
  • Leverage present power structures and work within unhealthy ones when you aren’t “top dog.”
  • Learn and practice three, simple tools to get change moving for you.         
Bring your change challenge and leave with possibilities.
