During this 60-minute live webinar, the second in a series, Deborah Rowland, author of recently published Still Moving; How to Lead Mindful Change, will share compelling insights into how to implement successful change in today’s world. She will draw on both the lessons from her own extensive field experience and her recent global research into the link between mindfulness and change leadership

Her first webinar, Leading Mindful Change for Inspired Leadership, focussed on the inner capacities required of a leader, their quality of being. This session will focus on a leader’s external practices, or their quality of doing, that her research has shown are highly correlated with leading complex change in environments of high uncertainty

You will learn about four practices that, when combined, create an equal balance of disruption and stability in a system, and enable a leader to create ongoing change in their organisation without the leader having to shoulder all the effort. Out of these four practices, Deborah will go deeper on the one that most highly differentiated successful change leadership – ‘edge and tension’ – requiring leaders to make disturbance their friend!

Finally, Deborah will step back to look at how you can architect an overall approach to change in your organisation, and share her insights into the approach her research has shown is most relevant in today’s world, emergent change – which is counterintuitive to how most change is led, requiring leaders giving up their need to control or predict outcomes.

Webinar Highlights

  • Learn about the four leadership behaviours highly correlated with implementing successful change in today’s world
  • Understand how they interrelate to enable a leader to lead change in more effortless and sustainable ways
  • Learn about the tricky task of how a leader can skilfully confront today’s reality without causing defensive routines in others
