Leadership is about how we shape the future we truly desire.

Organizations by Design believes it takes capacity, creativity, and an ability to connect deeply to lead teams, organization or communities through complex change toward their shared future.

Do you want to learn how to build leadership capacity at the personal, team, organization or community level?

Personal mastery involves developing core competencies in collaboration, creating aspirational goals, understanding complex change and connecting through relationships.  You can accomplish this and so much more by joining a network of big picture thinkers, thought leaders, and change agents.

Are you passionate, do you care deeply and are you able to see the larger system in which you operate? Are you able to foster deep trusting relationships and build creative teams and networks? Do you have a knack for connecting with what matters most to people and are you able to unleash their collective imagination and energy?  

We can connect you to learning opportunities, thought leaders and community initiatives!

Teams can build the capacity to learn to more creatively think together. Seeing the big picture is a team sport.  

Do your team members understand their role in relation to your organizational mission, business and strategic plan? Do they see their team’s role in relation to the larger organization? Do they need tools to help them think more creatively and productively together? Do you want to create an organization that will attract and retain committed employees who share your vision?  

We want to share our experiences with leading great teams. Check out our workshop on team learning journeys

Successful organizations recognize the opportunities that come from risks.

Are your short-term solutions only giving you temporary relief? Do you feel like the status quo is as good as it gets and do you want to change from problem solving to seeing possibilities? Do you know the forces that drive your strategy and those of sector leaders? How are your competitors thinking differently than you? What assumptions are you using to make decisions? 

Better understanding your organization’s value to your community and stakeholders can help you transition from your current reality to your future state.  

Let’s connect to explore ways our organization can work with your organization!  

Everyone defines community differently, some define it from an industry or professional perspective, some geographically and some by area of interest for instance vulnerable populations. We invite you to view exciting inspirational at home and around the world initiatives featured on our website. And to share with us initiatives you are involved with locally or globally. 

Are you interested in joining or creating a learning network? Tell us about what that network would look like and we will help make those personal connections for you. 

Are you looking for a short but thought provoking read? If so we invite you to check out our Insight Blog and sign up to receive our newsletter. 

You may also want to review our list of resources on leading, learning and collaborating. We encourage you to share them with others and to share your resources with us, so we can share them with others.

Our 2020 thought leaders are individuals in the Edmonton community that are visionaries, capacity builders and big picture thinkers.  If this describes you let’s connect over a coffee!

At Organizations by Design we envision building a community of thought leaders by sharing resources, creating learning networks, making meaningful connections and by building community capacity.
