Organise for Complexity: Start working the system together! - Niels Pflaeging

Link visible for attendees

The Future of Work Scotland team are very pleased to be bringing you this event with BetaCodex founder, Niels Pflaeging

In this session we will explore why organizational federalization is inevitable. How to connect the doing with the talking. How to bring about organizational transformation that sticks.

If we want to bring about a better Future of Work, then a twofold shift is needed. First, a profound shift in our conception of how organizations should function.

Secondly, a re-orientation in our approach to change, or transformation. Away from notions of change management, and towards fast transformation with all the willing.

Niels has dedicated two decades of research, community work and consulting practice to the issue of how to overcome command-and-control organization, for good. He was a pioneer of the Beyond Budgeting movement, and went on to create the BetaCodex community, along with practical approaches such as Cell Structure Design and OpenSpace Beta.

In this highly energetic, interactive session, Niels will discuss with us how any organization can become sustainably more successful and fit for human beings, by moving beyond centralized steering.

Learning Objectives:

What can our attendees expect to take away from the session?

● Ideas that will surprise and inspire
● An invitation to reflect practice and theory of agile work
● A look at performance systems, organisational design and change!

Here's some more on our awesome guests for this session:

Niels Pflaeging is a leadership philosopher and entrepreneur. He is also one of the most prolific European experts on organizational leadership and transformation.

Since 2003, Niels has achieved international recognition as an author, with ten published books to date. He speaks four languages fluently.

Together with Silke Hermann, Niels developed a series of powerful organizational approaches, which include OpenSpace Beta, Cell Structure Design, *Org Physics *and Change-as-Flipping. Among his best-selling books is the internationally acclaimed Organize for Complexity.

Selfless Leadership: leading without a leader - Katrijn Van Oudheusden

Link visible for attendees

The Future of Work Scotland team are delighted to be hosting author of Selfless Leadership, Katrijn Van Oudheusden.

In this session we explore what it really takes to become a selfless, servant leader. It’s not what you think. Instead of learning anything new, we must unlearn a few false beliefs about our true nature as human beings. What emerges from this understanding is authentic, effortless selfless leadership.

Learning Objectives:

What can our attendees expect to take away from the session?

  • Understand the four insights into your true nature as selfless service.

  • Understand what is needed to “see” these insights (the path or method to get there).

  • What leadership outcomes you can expect from this understanding and how that changes how we see leadership and service.

Here some more on our awesome speaker for this session:

Katrijn Van Oudheusden coaches for selfless, servant leadership.

With over 20 years of international experience as a coach, management consultant and organization development professional, she has focused her coaching practice on guiding leaders toward authentic, effortless selfless leadership, using a unique online process that applies 16 tested practices from world wisdom traditions.

Katrijn has completed personal coach and non-dual coach training, Bryon Katie's School for The Work, as well as systemic organisation development qualifications. Her coaching is based on her understanding of non-dual approaches, which emphasize the unity of all existence.

Originally from Belgium Katrijn grew up as an expat child in Bangkok, Thailand. After university and first work experience in the Netherlands, she moved to Germany in 2008. She serves leaders located all over the world in English, Dutch and German from her home in Frankfurt.
