IN THE DARK
“Leadership In The Dark” connects expert facilitators with groups managing external or internal change, including restructuring, political and economic dynamics, or community transitions. Together, blindfolded, participants identify systemic challenges and consider design solutions that embrace authenticity and empower diverse voices—and they leave with a clear roadmap to systemically and sustainably address critical challenges.
During the “Leadership In The Dark” workshop participants will be exposed to a snapshot of some theoretical concepts from the Adaptive Leadership Framework and will experientially apply them following exercises and real-life problem discussions. Participants will acquire practical frameworks to evaluate their organization’s system and be able to dissect and analyse the challenges in it. The main outcome of these sessions is for participants to adopt new conceptual tools to observe, adapt and intervene their organizational structure applying this innovative framework. The “Discovery In The Dark” methodology allows for the creation of a safe, trusting and holding environment for people to express more of their thoughts concerning an adaptive challenge. The combination of these two frameworks results in this unique, transformative experience where participants will be more transparent, able to connect more deeply, express their true voice, show their authentic selves and share their perspectives fully, amplifying the experience and taking it to the next level.
This program can be delivered either as a two-hour workshop or as a series of workshops that will dig deeper, providing a more comprehensive set of frameworks to develop participant’s leadership mindset.
