Conscious Leaders Create Conscious Organisations through Requisite Agility

People generally know what the right thing to do is. So why do so many people get stuck in doing what they know rather than what the Right Action that will make a difference.

This is not a time-management problem. If it was simply a case of time-management, given the thousands of programs, books, tools and apps out there, you would think it would be “managed” by now.

One of the key measures of productivity and performance we use with leaders and organisations is the RIGHT ACTION RATIO.

What percentage of the past week were you working on what was requisite?

Teams and organisations get stuck in routines, constraints and distractions which pulls the individual people into the pit.

A conscious leader creates clarity about what is requisite, what is the Right Action, that will make the biggest positive difference? A conscious leader removes distractions and impediments. The time and energy that is saved is not used to do more work, but to build the capacity for reflection, to conduct authentic retrospectives, hold uncomfortable conversations, tap the energy trapped in conflicts and use it to transform ways of thinking.

It is a shame that we have to add the term ‘conscious’ to leader, because this is what great leaders have always done. The reason we need this term is to move leadership development out of the pit of ‘behavioiural training’ where checklists, nine-box grids, preformulated steps and stages are used to define leadership.

When leaders are fully present in the moment, paying attention to themselves, their context, their environment, their colleagues, the people they support, the people who support them and the customers they serve, they do not need to parrot a so called ‘best practice’ from somewhere else– they become the ‘right practice’ by doing what is requisite, right here, right now.

There is a reason why the great sages of all time used parables and stories rather than checklists and best practices. Through the stories, they were getting people to draw out principles and think for themselves, and do the right thing.

This is not to say all checklists, models, frameworks and techniques are bad. The point is to be aware of what is our True North, what is the Right Action (requisite) and how do we either use or adapt these solutions from other places in our own unique context, process and relationships? How do we create transformations that matter? The irony is that those ‘best practices’ were created consciously. To turn them into instant solutions, to be followed blindly destroys their very essence.

Why Attend?

What is your RIGHT ACTION ratio?

How conscious is your own leadership?

How conscious is your organisation?


Through this conference you will learn how to determine what is the Right Action (requisite), what is your True North through the following: 

  • Synchronise your time, attention and energy with the markets/communities you serve.
  • Prioritise and shape the transitions and changes that need to take place
  • Build collaborative intelligence to transform your organisation
  • Learn how to rise above what we know, to tap what we don’t know (conflicts and confusion)
  • Bring servant leadership to life in a way that transforms the culture 


There will be no speakers at this conference. There will be 14 conscious leaders who will share stories and challenge you to return to yourself and your organisation, with a renewed sense of what is requisite and what to do about it. You will raise your RIGHT ACTION RATIO!

Joan Lurie


I am the CEO of Orgonomix, a company I founded in 2008 to assist leaders and organisations to transform themselves and to function at their growing edge. My work integrates strategy, systems thinking, complexity, social construction and adult development theory. I work with boards, executives and leadership teams to help them rewire their thinking to be more systemic, and to design and lead complex adaptive and second-order change in their organisations. With over 20 years of practice and experience, I have taken up both internal corporate as well as consulting roles, helping companies achieve turnaround results - emerging new cultures, operating models and different organisational systems, whilst simultaneously building their adaptive capacity. Through this practice and experimentation, I have developed Orgonomics™ - a proprietary methodology which provides a ‘map’ for leaders to navigate the emerging complexity we face in the new economic landscape.

FOR was one of the first futures consulting firms and had Alvin Toffler, Herman Kahn, Ted Gordon, and other leading futurists on its board.Glenn helped to craft the section of the SALT II treaty (1979) that prohibited the USSR from deploying its Fractional Orbital Bombardment System.[8] In 1983 he created CARINET, a computer network that CGNET Services International later acquired, and through CARINET he introduced data packet switching to numerous countries in the developing world. In 1996 Glenn and Theodore J. Gordon wrote a report in cooperation with the Smithsonian Institution and the Futures Group (rebranded as Palladium International) about the feasibility of establishing a futures think tank; later that year he co-founded the Millennium Project, an organization that evaluates 15 global challenges to the future of humanity.

Reiner Kraft, PhD

The Mindful Leader

Former CTO and seasoned technology leader. While working in the Silicon Valley for 20 years, and in Berlin for the past 4 years, I was able to gain extensive experience in how to successfully build and scale technology organizations of various sizes. As a technologist, I focused on solving hard technical problems to solve real customer needs that required an innovative mix of engineering and research (data science and machine learning). Through my experiences working in world class engineering environments and research labs, I can transform an organization by properly organizing product & technology to drive business results. For example, I have built up Zalando Research, a dedicated AI / deep learning lab, from the ground up, to drive long term strategic innovation, and foster short term competitive advantages to its suite of digital products.
