The Role of Learning and Emotion in System Change

25th May 2021

We often pay lip service to the importance of learning, but how many of us truly treat it as a priority rather than a luxury? In this session, we will be exploring what learning is, why we need to think about it differently, and why we need to place it at the heart of what we do in systems. We also explore how learning is fundamentally an emotional undertaking, and how we need to create more space for the emotions if we are to be successful at driving positive system change.

An Introduction to Anti-Leadership


14th March 2022

Traditional leadership programmes draw on the idea that developing certain qualities and skills in individuals is a route to organisational success. In this session Andy Crosbie of the Collective Impact Agency argued why we should reject this notion, and introduce an alternative, the concept and practice of which we call 'anti-leadership'.
