About the course
The third session will focus on cultivating the capacity and skills necessary to lead change at the organizational and cultural level. Students will use the paradox lens to explore questions such as: How does a leader, coach, or practitioner support those who are attempting to manage polarities within their organization? How can polarities be used to propel organizations and change efforts to higher levels of effectiveness? How do you use polarities to reduce cultural tensions in teams and in the organization? How do you increase the organization’s capacity to embrace diversity and include contradictory points of view?
Participants will work with real life case studies that allow them to deepen and expand their ability to see polarities at play within a system and learn relevant facilitation and coaching techniques that take into account polarities at the organizational, cultural, and societal level. The final session will build upon the previous two sessions with the applied focus of working with polarities in the context of leading change.
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify and leverage polarities in teams, organizations, and cultures.
- Lead change at the organizational and societal level using polarities as a resource.
- Support leaders who are attempting to manage polarities in their organizations.
- Reduce tension in teams, organizations, and society using polarities.
- Supplement diversity and inclusion strategies at the organizational and societal levels with polarities.
