Systemic Leadership in Organizations

Pocket room, 1st floor

20th November, 18:00-18:30

Whether we work in IT or other industries we want our organizations to be innovative and our managers to show strong leadership. Many are already doing it, some are mimicking it, and many talk about these as must-have, survival skills and strategies for the next decades. Why do companies fail? Even when they seem to have struck gold with the latest technology. What is the difference between survival and thriving? What skill or discipline does the new leader need to master? Systemic leadership proposes a new lens to look at the organization and at its complex context: systems thinking as a tool for managing complexity. Looking at a company through a systemic lens helps identify and address the underlying issues that make the difference between survival and thriving. The company is seen as a complex adaptive system, as an organism whose health status can be assessed and managed.

As an organisational development consultant I join people in exploring organisational system dynamics, which helps them manage complexity and make better decisions. My background is in telecommunications engineering and interdisciplinary research, being involved in international research projects and teaching at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca for the past 15 years. What these two have in common is systems thinking and the interdisciplinary approach.
