Like you perhaps, we are watching some of the political trends across the world with some trepidation. It looks to us like the complexity of the world has driven many people--understandably--to simple solutions.  The problem is those simple solutions aren't always good for our humanity or our planet. Come learn with us about how to support each other and those around us to handle complexity with grace. We can all learn to be liberated by complexity rather than trapped by our need for simplicity!

Best Thursday Ever
So here's the thing.  If it is at all possible, you should come to the  Leading in Complex Times event we're having in London on 20 September. Take the day off. Hop on a Eurostar. Cancel your meetings. But come. I'm not sure there has ever been an event I've been a part of where I was so convinced of the value of your time in going. I never write blogs like this, trying to sell something or claiming that my perspective is one you need to listen to. But I think this event really is important, and I really do think you should go. Here's my thinking - click the blog link for more:
