Leveraging Uncertainty in Organizational Design
July 2, 2018
Hosted by June Gunter, with Beth Hyjek, Christine Erickson, and Morgan Ridenhour
In this episode, we will begin reframing uncertainty as the place where possibility and innovation are born. We will be exploring questions like: How do we see uncertainty?; How has life with horses informed our thinking?; and, What becomes possible when we let go of our attachment to certainty? We will explore how our thinking about uncertainty has influenced the design and evolution of our businesses. We will share how we see confusion as a sign of progress and a signal that opportunity and innovation are on the horizon. We will be in conversation with one of the Co- Founders of TimeZero Enterprises, Argerie Vasilakes, and inventor of the Flourishing Living Systems™ Platform. Taking a cue from Nature, Argerie has learned that uncertainty and complexity are forces to leverage – not to resist – for healthy and productive ecosystems.

The world is changing and our beliefs about leadership need to change with it. On this show we reveal the simple, yet profound, truths we have learned from horses that will prepare you to lead confidently in the direction of your future. In the world we lead in, clarity is more powerful than force. We reframe uncertainty, offer you ways to find confidence in uncertainty, and reimagine leadership for the world we live in today. We explore ways to use attention, direction, energy, and congruence to elevate confidence in your leadership.
