Breakfast Seminar Streamed Live — 18 August – Thriving In Complexity

One for my Kiwi readers…

Inspiring professional learning at your convenience — streamed straight to you!
Kia ora Michael

We invite you to attend our next live-stream presentation on Friday 18 August:

Thriving in complexity

Schools have often been forces of societal stability, preparing young people to take a defined and productive (and sometimes predetermined) role in society. Today’s schools, on the contrary, are being asked to prepare young people to enter a future world that we cannot even imagine. It’s hard enough for the adults in schools to cope with the uncertainty we face in the relatively near future; growing the school and societal leaders we need for the distant future is daunting indeed. In this session Jennifer offers a new way of thinking about uncertainty and some new tools to help us all grow more capable of coping with our complex world.

This CORE breakfast seminar will:

  • introduce a model for thinking about the complexity of a particular issue or challenge
  • explore the ways we get in our own way during complex challenges
  • practice some of the simple habits that might get us out of the way
  • discuss how this is vital for students, teachers, and school leaders.

Who will this session be of interest to?

Teachers and leaders (and community members) who are interested in exploring the ways schools and the people in them might need to change in order to face a fast-changing, complex world.

About our presenter

Mana Faaea-SemeatuJennifer wrote the book on Leading in Complexity—literally. Simple Habits for Complex Times: Powerful Practices for Leaders (written with Keith Johnston), is a guide to how leadership is different as complexity builds. One reader said of the book, “Simply put – it is brilliant, the BEST tool I have ever had in leadership.” Jennifer has been researching, writing and working with leaders in complex settings for 20 years.

Her first real job was as a public school English teacher, but her core interest became supporting adults rather than adolescents, first at a university (as associate professor at George Mason University in the US) and then as a consultant, researcher, and writer.

Starting with a doctorate in ways adults make sense of complexity (Harvard University, 2002) and building through two books (and soon a third), Jennifer has developed a series of tools and approaches that help leaders around the globe use complexity to their advantage. From school leadership teams in Wellington to senior leaders at large global organisations, the thing all these leaders have in common is their need to increase their ability to thrive under conditions of growing complexity, uncertainty, and change.

Jennifer now mostly works with executives and executive teams in private, non-profit, and government sectors around the world, like Google, NAB, Wikipedia, Oxfam International, Climate KIC Europe, and a variety of New Zealand government departments. Jennifer also speaks about leadership in complexity at conferences, guest lectures at universities around the world, and advises learning and development leaders about designing workplaces for complexity. She is the founding board member of the Google Institute of Leadership Development.

Jennifer was born in the US, but has become a Kiwi by choice, having moved to Paekakariki with her husband, two kids, and the family dog in 2006. She and her family became citizens on Waitangi day in 2014. Jennifer is a founding partner of Cultivating Leadership, a global leadership consultancy with offices in San Francisco, Hong Kong, Sydney, and Paekakariki. www.cultivatingleadership.co.nz

One for my Kiwi readers.

We invite you to attend our next live-stream presentation on Friday 8 September:

Walking the tightrope: Balancing prevention and protection – promoting resiliency to achieve a safe environment online

There has never been a greater need for schools to take a proactive approach towards a whole school community promotion of digital citizenship, including online safety and wellbeing, than there is now. As technology relentlessly evolves to improve our connection and disrupt traditional ways of life, it presents not only new opportunities but also emerging and evolving challenges. This in turn requires our schools, parents and young people to understand and develop the skills required to succeed and flourish in these new environments.

Digital citizenship, as a framework to promote safe and responsible use of technology, must undergo its own growth if it is to remain an effective platform from which to build capable learners of tomorrow.

This CORE breakfast seminar will explore:

  • what the technology landscape looks like for young people
  • the online safety paradox
  • the changing nature of digital citizenship and online safety
  • what educators can do to help learners successfully achieve the balance needed to thrive in an evolving online environment
