This tool will help you to prepare for a conversation with a stakeholder who has a different perspective on the issue or the way forward. It can be particularly useful when preparing for a conversation that you fear may become heated.
This tool will help you to identify ways to expand your adaptive leadership practices. It is designed to support individual reflection on leadership practice and identify practices that can be trialled immediately.
This tool will help you to identify: • Factors that have contributed to the change you seek. • Evidence demonstrating the contribution. • The strength of the contribution. • Identify new means of and opportunities to exercise leadership.

This online resource offers a set of guides for systems thinking, systems mapping, systems change and systems building through the lens of Systems Innovation, which aims to change the underlying structure of a system rather than its individual parts.
This resource describes six conditions of systems change: policies; practices; resource flows; relationships and connections; power dynamics; and mental models.
This resource helps individuals think systemically about social change, explore what is happening below the surface on issues they care about, and determine how they and their organizations can pursue large-scale change in a disciplined and holistic manner.
