Escaping Our Mindtraps: Helping Our Clients (and Ourselves) to Thrive in Complexity

Are you and your clients struggling to handle the massive amounts of complexity in your life? It turns out that there are five pernicious and pervasive "mindtraps” that capture us when times are complex. These old patterns and biases have deep psychobiological roots and trick us into thinking and acting in simplistic ways—helpful for a simple world, but unhelpful for a complex one. Learning to understand and recognise these traps helps us ask ourselves and our clients powerful new questions to begin to escape them and thrive in the creative and exciting conditions complexity offers.

Learning Objectives

  1. To identify ways we each fall into Mindtraps that are not helpful in complexity
  2. To learn questions and approaches to escape from each trap
  3. To make connections between the ways we are trapped and our relationships with ourselves, others, and the world

Presenter: Jennifer Garvey-Berger

Jennifer Garvey BergerJennifer Garvey Berger believes that leadership is one of the most vital renewable resources in the world. At a time when organisations are often forging the path rather than following the path of others, leadership is about creating the conditions for people to be their most creative, connected, intelligent selves. She is a founding partner and CEO of Cultivating Leadership, a consultancy that serves executives and executive teams in the private, non-profit, and government sectors around the world. Her clients include Google, Microsoft, Novartis, Wikipedia, and Oxfam International. Jennifer designs and teaches leadership programs, coaches senior teams, and supports new ways of thinking about strategy and people with clients facing these dramatic shifts in complexity, volatility, and change in their workplaces and markets. She blends deep theoretical knowledge with a driving quest for practical ways to make leaders’ lives better.
