Speakers: Liz Weaver & Sylvia Cheuy
Navigating disruption and change is challenging. During times of chaos and dramatic change, we find it difficult to envision the future and potential paths forward. In this webinar, Liz Weaver and Sylvia Cheuy will share three approaches and tools that they often use to help communities and changemakers navigate change. These practical tools will provide you with insights about where you are currently and strategies to support your transition to a new horizon.
The Eco-Cycle Mapping Tool identifies four phases of community and organizational change and the traps that often prevent us from moving from one phase to the next.
The Landscape Diagram is useful for discovering how much agreement and certainty is required before moving forward.
The Three Horizons approach enables changemakers to spot opportunities and risks, identify leverage points and determine when to let things go.
Come and learn how to interpret, navigate and embrace change with these useful and practical tools.
