Cynefin21 – Teaching Cynefin® & Future-Backwards and Lego

Webinar Recording: October 2020

Richard Atherton from FirstHuman is passionate about organisations maximising their impact in the world  and supporting the people who lead them. He holds a mirror to individuals and to teams and compassionately has them own what they need to change. 

He is a highly skilled facilitator with an approach grounded in complexity thinking. He was instrumental in bringing SenseMaker® into the BBC. He is veteran in encouraging organisations to adopt experimental approaches to change.

He shares the process for and benefits of combining Lego Serious Play with Future Backwards. 

When he heard Dave for the first time, Bernhard Sterchi found in the Cynefin Framework a missing cornerstone of the conceptual building on which he was teaching complexity-savvy leadership. But as impressed as many leaders are with Cynefin and connected concepts, most of them, especially on more operational levels, struggle with translating their enthusiasm into something to do differently next week. In this talk, Bernhard shares some of his essential building blocks and experiences of helping leaders make use of Cynefin in their practice.

Bernhard Sterchi supports leaders as a thought sorter and minder of opportunities. Holdig a PhD in historical anthropology, he has spent several years inside corporations managing HR and knowledge management projects. With the consulting firm Management Zentrum St. Gallen he has learnt and taught systems oriented approaches to management, after which he has founded Palladio Trusted Advisers, and with that company continues to develop methods and tools that help leaders deal with high complexity. He ist he author of The Leader’s Fairytales and Oblique Strategies for Leaders.
