Understanding the value complexity can add to your coaching practice

Coronavirus has highlighted the always present interdependence and complexity of our world. We have all have watched whole systems change almost overnight. Now, everyone is almost drowning in ambiguity and uncertainty. Many of us are wondering how to understand what has happened and what may happen in the future.

It makes sense that as a professional coach or leader, you may be looking to extend what you already understand about the theory of complexity and explore how to implement that theory within organisations.

The paradigm of complexity offers a way of harnessing what we know about how living systems behave. It helps us to identify new ways of perceiving what is happening and understand what we need to do differently to generate better outcomes.

Complexity adds a new ‘tool’ to your toolbox. As you embody it over time, you will develop your own capacity to work systemically. This adds a depth to your work that is sought after by clients and makes a real difference in an increasingly volatile and uncertain world.

About Dr. Josie McLean

Josie began her career as a financial analyst and corporate strategic planner in the automotive and finance industries. She has been fascinated by the intersection of strategy, people, process and change ever since. In 1999, she commenced her executive coaching practice that extended into organisational cultural evolution by 2009. During that year Josie also received the global International Coach Federation President’s 2009 Award for her contribution as a co-founder of the professional coaching industry in Australasia.

Josie’s doctoral thesis involved her as an external change agent within a client organisation to understand how an organisation might transform itself to nurture people and planet– just like a person might – from the inside out.

She continues to work in the ambiguous space of adaptive learning and change within organisations and communities.

Increasingly her work is turning to teaching others what she has learned about complex challenges and how to move forward within them.

Josie continues to research and publish as a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Adelaide’s Yunus Social Business Centre and is also a co-founder on the global Climate Coaching Alliance initiative.
