Navigating with Inner Knowing and Awakened Presence: An Approach to Leading in a Complex World
Sell, Katharina C.
Action Learning: Research and Practice, v14 n3 p243-255 2017
What are our options if we have to let go of the idea of controllability in our ever more complex world? What tools do we have to navigate in a territory that we can't "manage" anymore, where the old instruments of command and control have lost their grip? What makes us "know" when intellectual knowing capitulates in the face of complexity? This paper presents an action learning approach in four phases that explores how intuition or other forms of inner knowing can be used as a resource in leadership and organisational change. It looks at what helps us access ways of inner knowing in complex situations and how a learning process could take place in the corporate context. The endeavour aims at exploring and actualising dormant potential to navigate the volatility, uncertainty and complexity of our business environment whilst embodying and radiating our purpose and vision.
