WE make better sense than me - the art of Collective Sense Making (Antoinette Coetzee, Jason Knight)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Making sense is too important to do alone. We each see a part of the puzzle. It's only when we combine our collective sense of what's going on that we see more of the reality around us. Too often, it remains hidden. We need this collective wisdom to make sense of volatility, uncertainty, accelerated change, and ambiguity in order to respond.
Did you know there is a framework for having a Collective Sensemaking conversation? And, if done properly, it develops the thinking of everyone involved? In this session, you will observe a live demo with a detailed breakdown of the demo to illustrate the power of this approach. You will then have an opportunity to practice yourself. Come to this interactive workshop and learn how you and your organization can apply this framework to better respond to the challenges you face.

Learning Outcomes:
  • * Describe the Sense-and-Respond pattern
  • * Recognize the power of Collective Sensemaking in catalyzing deep individual growth and development
  • * Understand and demonstrate Collective Sensemaking and its value in co-creating solutions
  • * Explain the link between developing Collective Sensemaking and the impact on our leadership capabilities
  • * Understand key nuances in the practice and application of Collective Sensemaking
  • * Apply Collective Sensemaking to your own problem-solving
  • * Demonstrate the kind of interactions and attitudes needed for Collective Sensemaking
  • * Explain how the practice of Collective Sensemaking can significantly impact the quality of relationship within groups (e.g. in meetings) and teams
