“Humans have huge capacity for growth and change. I used to believe that with commitment to creating new mindsets, clarity of purpose and focusing on creating the positive “weather”, organisations would thrive. I knew that when things got ‘stuck’, having the courage to stay with it would allow creativity, courage and dialogue to emerge. My systemic practice has caused me to reconsider and expand my world view of how you create sustainable change. Our context creates patterns and blocks which mean that you can create significant positive shift only if you work at levels of individual, collective and the system to unlock unseen patterns.”
