Sonja Blignaut: Way of the Wayfinder – habits of mind to navigate complexity

Complexity is inherently unpredictable; therein lies the challenge but also the invitation. Anthropologist, Tim Ingold, describes wayfinding as “not knowing before you go, but knowing as you go”. In a world where competence is often related to “knowing”, it can be very difficult to step into wayfinding, especially as a leader.

In this session we will explore the habits of mind and skills needed to become wayfinders, scaffolded by Sonja’s Waysfinder framework.
