As we enter this new year, many of us feel as if we are in a state of continuous confusion, like nothing is clear. So, what do we do? Do we rush to try to resolve and clarify, or is it better to stay in not knowing for a while?
Aporia is a state of mind where we can make that confusion generative – become curious about that confusion, and embrace the contradictions rather than trying to avoid, reframe or force their complexity into neat, tidy solutions. It opens up multiple possible pathways we can take, creating options from confusion.
This Masterclass dives deep into this space, highlighting the significance of the Aporetic / Confused domain as an entry point into the Cynefin sense-making process and exploring the rich pathways this opens up for issues and processes to flow through the domains.
Participants will explore the multiple pathways of movement through the Cynefin® framework, as well as methods and practices to shift issues out of the realm of confusion and into other domains where they can be managed appropriately.
