Facilitating for Emergence: A Conversation with Adam Kahane
Wed, October 6, 4:00pm – 5:00pm BST
How to affect change in a complex system where you are part of a process or a discussion and yet without getting directly involved in the process or discussion yourself? How do you know when to listen and observe or engage and intervene, when to seek consensus or live with disagreements, when to stay on course or experiment and explore new paths, and when to command and control or accompany and serve?
Join us to explore these questions in a conversation with Adam Kahane. Adam is the author of five books. In this conversation, we will dive into his latest book, Facilitating Breakthrough: How to Remove Obstacles, Bridge Differences, and Move Forward Together. The conversation will be facilitated by Joanne Dong from Systems Innovation Toronto Hub.
This conversation is for anyone who helps people work together to transform their situation, be it a professional facilitator, manager, consultant, coach, chairperson, organizer, mediator, stakeholder, or friend.
Adam Kahane is a director of Reos Partners, an international social enterprise that helps people move forward together on their most important and intractable issues. He is a leading organizer, designer, and facilitator of processes through which business, government, and civil society leaders can work together to address challenges.
Adam has worked in more than fifty countries and in every part of the world, with executives, politicians, generals, guerrillas, civil servants, trade unionists, community activists, United Nations officials, clergy, and artists.
