ORGANIC agility® provides a new leadership approach, models for cultural change, insight into complexity thinking and addresses topics that are important to every leader in any organization. The ORGANIC Leadership® framework supports leadership growth as a capability, rather than only seeing it as the personal development of leaders. To grow leadership capabilities we need to start building the ability, in ourselves and others, to see the connections between what we do and the effect these actions have on our organizational culture, our environment and ourselves as leaders. Becoming a true Strategic Leader will allow you to focus on what matters and equip you to head a resilient organization.

I feel that my journey with this framework has only begun. And I don’t usually buy into frameworks that much, for me it’s more about first principles always. But this time I really have to say that you’ve created something powerful and I’d be happy to be part of the community that develops it further. The era of complexity has arrived and this, in addition to Cynefin is the current most cutting edge set of principles and patterns that one can utilize to cope with the challenges posed by the accelerating pace of change into the adjacent possible.
What are the Masterclasses and do I need them?
Our workshops and trainings are based on proven methods addressing, drawing from, or relevant to Organizational Culture, Leadership Coaching, Design Thinking, Cynefin, or other consulting approaches.
If you are a consultant, an internal Coach or you are just interested in the science, theories, and patents on which our frameworks are based, the masterclass is the right way to dig deeper. The masterclass can also give you access to an expanded toolset. Through that deep dive, plus practice and training experience, you can reach three different accreditation levels, which enable you to teach your own ORGANIC agility classes and certify the attendees.
