The Managing Paradox Workshop

The Managing Paradox Workshop

Doing more with Less – Productive Conflict   – Agile Strategy – Being ready for the Unknown

Linear problem solving techniques and simplistic models rarely advance strategic intent. Organizations must find, and proactively renew, core and enabling strategic paradox – those   unique advantages that form the basis for success and depend on leader’s thinking power.

The Managing Paradox workshop is an intensive intact team experience where learning advanced theories occurs through a high performing team experience with practical application and real representative problems from your organization. Managing Paradox is available in a 2.5 day live experiential workshop or can be virtually delivered through engaging online sessions with guided small group application and whole group integration.
