Breakthroughs happen when leaders flex insights that open up new possibilities. When we can see, sense and elegantly act on such insights, we increase our ability to lead a system past a threshold to breakthrough. We master how to sense the ‘music’ of systems and the relational fields within them.
We use The Systems TOOLKIT to collaboratively spot deep drivers of the status quo that must be disrupted; and sweet-spots where small actions can create outsize impacts. We understand how context influences leadership. We use The FUTURES TOOLKIT to explore the potential impact of likely scenarios of the future, challenging our assumptions and questioning the official future. We use The Empathy TOOLKIT to feel into the hearts and minds of people to explore real needs, motivations and pain points. We use The INSIGHT TOOLKIT to capture and flex insights in ways that drive breakthroughs forward.
The guiding question we ask in this module is: What do we believe about the future of our system that opens up / blocks breakthroughs?
