Leading Momentum Series: Adaptive Cultures for Cultural Evolution and Innovation, module 4

12th May, 2021 @ 9:00 am


12/05/2021 - 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


The program is based on a cultural evolution and innovation framework that integrates adaptive cultures, strategic foresight and innovation, as a means to support cultural development in schools. This program has been designed to support the intentional development of cultures that enable each school to develop a pathway towards their desired/ aspirational state.

Comprised of six action learning modules, each including two central ideas informed by research, case studies and practice, the program is designed to support leaders to build a flexible and ever-evolving adaptive culture in their school. Each workshop contains specific learnings and suggested actions to assist the leadership group to build and maintain momentum during their unique change journey.

Deliberately crafted to guide leaders and orientate their cultural evolution journey, the framework is flexible and honours the unique context of every learning environment.

The series enables school leaders to create momentum, amplify leadership impact and explore, evolve and transform learning communities at a contextually suitable speed.

Participating schools will undertake a session of individual cultural diagnosis, analysis and coaching with David. Mary Hudson will be available to work with teams to maintain momentum between sessions.

David Runge has been an educator for the past 20 years. He is passionate about self-authorship and co-constructed education, and imagines a world of purpose-filled, empowered learning. With extensive knowledge in foresight, scenario planning, culture and innovation, David has worked alongside schools, Universities, and Education Departments to implement innovation and enable change. He is committed to supporting organisations to evolve so that they are more adaptive and future focused and therefore better able to meet the needs of their communities.
