ABOUT

At Susanna Carman Integral Design,

I help people solve complex problems - the types of problems that have to do with leadership services, organisational systems, & human interactions.

 

The world is growing increasingly

volatile, uncertain, complex & ambiguous.

Those accountable for leading in these conditions need support, expertise & partnership.

I bring a high value toolkit & myself as

thinking partner, designer, facilitator & coach to people who are committed to

fulfilling potential in others.

RESEARCH

Subtractive Awareness: Educator-Change Leaders Helping Transformation Happen 

 

"This paper is foremost about experiments in embodying a transformative narrative of a self that makes possible mutual collaborative practice with others.

 

The focus is less on what we ought to think or do, but rather on subtracting, letting go of, self-identities that are no longer fit for collaborative purpose.

 

We refer to this as subtractive awareness by which we mean becoming aware of obstacles that inhibit creative action with others."

Dr. Hilary Bradbury

Transition. Design. Leadership:

Leading In A 'Time Between Worlds'

Zak Stein 

 

"Leaders and the consultants who work with them are experiencing the pull of the future, the push of the present & the drag of the past in unprecedented ways.

 

The convergence of the 4th Industrial Revolution, the Anthropocene & cultural polarisation is amplifying volatility, uncertainty, complexity & ambiguity.

With bushfires, floods & pandemics our new normal, the capacity to skilfully lead together amidst a world in transition is paramount."
