Highlights of past Lectures with Dr. Petra Kuenkel
Collective Leadership in Healthcare: Development, Implementation and Evaluation Network.

On the 4th December I visited the University College Dublin to hold a key note speech about the Collective Leadership approach in the National Health System reform for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland with the focus on “Collective Leadership in Healthcare: Development, Implementation and Evaluation Network”.

After the keynote speech, during a break out session, I fostered researchers, policy makers, leaders and change agents from various geographic areas across the UK and Ireland, to work toward the common goal of developing collective leadership in healthcare, that will lay the foundation for ongoing measurement and evaluation that will enable the development of an evidence base to support current and future initiatives in this area.

The session provided the opportunity to begin to develop an international network for collective leadership research and practice in healthcare.

This Seminar have been jointly led by the HRB-funded Co-Lead research team in UCD and the NHS Improvement team working on Culture and Leadership in the NHS.

Symposium - Transformative Designs for Sustainability - Facilitating mindshifts for collective action and Anthropocene prosperity.

On the 18th – 20th June 2018 the Symposium “Transformative Designs for Sustainability – Facilitating mindshifts for collective action and Anthropocene prosperity” took place in Hannover , Germany. The Transformation Lab was an interactive and co-creative event with a diverse community of scientists and practitioners that connects the inner journey to transformative collective behavior change with deliberate process designs and transformative structural interventions. The Transformation Lab built on the insight that transformative and systemic change can start at all levels and for all issues. Furthermore, it followed the idea that the human capability to design and steward change is at the core of a responsible Anthropocene. The two main conceptual and methodological approaches the Transformation Lab was based on The Collective Leadership Compass and the roceedings of the project: „A Mindset for the Anthropocene“ (IASS – Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies: http://www.iass-potsdam.de/en/researc…). I developed the contept for the tranformation lab togehter with Dr. Thomas Bruhn (a physicist working transdisciplinarily at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS)).

Patterns of Aliveness – an Emerging Theory for Stewarding Sustainability Transformation in the Era of the Anthropocene.

On March 20/ 2018 I gave a lecture on Patterns of Aliveness – an Emerging Theory for Stewarding Sustainability Transformation in the Era of the Anthropocene at IASS Potsdam – Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies e.V.

The introduction of the term Anthropocene has raised awareness that humans are responsible for the planet as a whole. The question remains if an emerging sense of responsibility will grow quickly enough to induce a change in human behavior. Human-made technology has the power to change the entire planetary socio-ecological system in an unprecedented way. Risk and opportunity move closer together: moving beyond the threshold of planetary boundaries might spark spiraling dynamics. Hence, understanding more about the How of accelerating patterns of transformative change for sustainability has therefore been widely identified as a future research challenge which I discussed in my lecture.
