Susanna Carman

The post-pandemic landscape is defined by increased levels of uncertainty and disruption in both personal and professional contexts. Tech sector layoffs as well as education and health care employee burnout are just some examples of the human resource challenges we face at a time when our best, most creative selves are required to meet the challenge of larges-scale systems change. Regardless of our functional roles within orgs, conditions demand we enhance our capacity for self-leadership in ways that make us more adaptive at navigating change.

Susanna Carman joins us to lead an exploration of our very human resistance to change. Together we will be introduced to a practice that reveals the gap between our great intentions, the results we actually produce, and the potential for adaptation that is available to us when we unlock the energy bound up in this polarising tension.
