The Paradox of Leadership

"I am not sure how often I´ve read Steps to an Ecology of Mind so far. This is what I got to realise after The Paradox of Leadership workshop last week in Berlin: No matter how great a book is (and this is truly an amazing one) there is only so much context a book can provide through reading it. You put the writing and the Bateson way of thinking and perceiving into a broad historical, philosophical and at the same time personal context. Thank you very much for this unique gift and for making this wonderful gathering happen. I guess certain anecdotes from this workshop will stick forever." - The voice of a participant.


What is leadership in this moment? When we look through the lens of interdependency, it is impossible to separate individuals from their contexts of influence and experience. This blurs the ‘hero’s story.’

Dramatic societal transformation is taking place around the globe, and the urge to help steer this transformation toward a healthier future is strong. How do current ideas of leadership both confirm and conflict with our desire to create positive change? Systemic leadership is a process of intellectual stretching, emotional complexity, and linguistic renovation.

Leadership is an evolving process and, as such, our understanding of what leadership is must evolve in accordance. In the past the world understood leadership as the great deeds of heroes, but now we are in another phase of global transition that requires an understanding of leadership based on our understanding of interdependency. This is where the paradox comes in.

Each person filters their experience through the particular frame of their own lives. There are no two of us that perceive identical worlds. And yet…Is there a part of any of us that we can point to and truly say, “that is me, untouched or influenced by any of my history, my culture, education, family, religion, social life...”? Unlikely. Our task is not to solve this paradox, but to discover the productive openings within it.

In our session on leadership we will have presentations, story, discussion, exercises and the Symmathesy Lab to become familiar with the paradox.

Two new terms we will be exploring are:

Symmathesy: An entity forming within contexts of mutual learning (a characteristic of any complex system).

Transcontextual description: The process of description to illustrate the many contexts that co-exist (in any complex system).

Nora Bateson:
Filmmaker, writer, educator. lecturer President of the International Bateson Institute, Sweden, USA,

Nora Bateson, is an award-winning filmmaker, research designer, writer and educator, as well as President of the International Bateson Institute based in Sweden. Her work asks the question “How we can improve our perception of the complexity we live within, so we may improve our interaction with the world?”. An international lecturer, researcher and writer, Nora wrote, directed and produced the award-winning documentary, An Ecology of Mind, a portrait of her father, Gregory Bateson. Her work brings the fields of biology, cognition, art, anthropology, psychology, and information technology together into a study of the patterns in ecology of living systems. Her book, Small Arcs of Larger Circles released by Triarchy Press, UK, 2016 is a revolutionary personal approach to the study of systems and complexity.

As an educator she has developed curricula for schools in Northern California, and produced and directed award winning multimedia projects on intercultural and ecological understanding. Her work, which has been presented at the world’s top universities, is described as “offering audiences a lens through which to see the world that affects not only the way we see, but also the way we think”. Nora’s work in facilitating cross-disciplinary discussions is part of her research into what she calls, “the ecology of the conversation”. Her speaking engagements include keynote addresses and lectures at international conferences and universities on a wide range of topics that span the fields of anti-fascism, ecology, education, the arts, family therapy, leadership and many more aspects of advocacy for living systems-- she travels between conversations in different fields bringing multiple perspectives into view to reveal larger patterns. She was featured in the Systemic Leadership Summit of 2016.

FAQs

How can I get to the event using public transport and how about parking?

From Essen Central Station (HBF), it is a 5 to 7 minute walk to the ruhr:HUB. Exit the station direction city (northern exit) and cross the road into the pedestrian precinct slightly to the left. Pass the building marked Ansons on its left hand side. Take the next turning on the left before the building marked Theater Passage high up on its side to the Linden Galerie in the Deutschlandhaus on the right-hand side of the roundabout on the Hans-Toussaint-Platz ahead. Enter the centre walking past the paternoster on the left to a set of stairs and an elevator about 50 yards on the right. The ruhr:HUB is on the first floor. This is a co-working space with our seminar room at the far end to the left.

From the train station at Düsseldorf Airport there are plenty of through trains to Essen HBF (Central Station) and beyond, both regional and intercity. Regional trains are cheaper, and the difference in speed works out to be about 4 minutes.

Paid car parking is available either in the same building (the Deutschlandhaus) for 12€ p/day or close by in Maxstraße for 3,50€ p/day.
