Systemic Leadership and Communication Practice

Most managers would agree that the complexity of their leadership challenge exceeds the simplicity of contemporary leadership theories, which offer little instructive significance for decision making.

In this workshop you will learn and apply concepts that embrace the complexity experienced in real leadership challenges, that make it possible for leaders to make sense of and orientate to the uniqueness of their situation, and invite ways of expanding choices for leaders to act in relation to challenges.

In this two day workshop you will

  • appreciate communication as the ‘stuff’ that creates leadership, coordination and performance in organisations
  • utilise a communication perspective to leadership, developing your orientation in relation to complex challenges, improving your appreciation of the position of others, and developing your agency to act creatively in such circumstances
  • reflect and learn from your own practice and experience of leadership practice, for instance in relation to strategy, performance management, organisational learning and change, applying postmodern and systemic concepts
  • develop specific reflections and actions for your leadership situations in relation to relevant practice contexts

To facilitate dialogue and learning the number of participants is limited to 16.    

Theoretical foundations

  • Systemic and social constructionist theory of communication (CMM)
  • Dialogic organisational development approaches
  • Critical management theory
  • Research into systemic reflexivity and organisational emergence




  • Developments in communication theory – the bridge from modern to post-modern
  • Leadership as a practice of shaping contexts and morality in communication
  • Discussion of cases and implications for leadership practice
  • Making sense of complexity using dialogic and affirmative sensibilities


  • Systemic approaches to real leadership situations
  • Acting wisely using imaginative and reflexive practice
  • Applying systemic perspectives to the wider organisation
  • Participant related case work and reflections
