11 August, Canberra—The School of Cybernetics and the Menzies Foundation launched on 3 August a report that proposes a set of cybernetic principles for leadership in a time when the world is going through transformative challenges and teeming with complex systems.
Entitled ‘Redefining Leadership in the 21st Century: the view from cybernetics’, the report challenges some assumptions about leadership and puts forward some cybernetic skills for leading change in the 21st century.
The School of Cybernetics is pivoting the report to a cybernetic leadership program and transformational experiences that aim to equip Australia’s current and emerging leaders to navigate the fast, smart and interconnected world they are inheriting, and to shape its future state.
