Increasing complexity and surprises interrupting life such as Covid-19 invite decision-makers at every level to increase capacity for adapting, evolving and seeing through wide and diverse lenses. Dawna Jones co-creates, with companies and collaborators, novel ways to bring more intelligence to play in self and in workplaces.

Adapt Decision making | Emergent Strategy | Evolve Thinking | Meaning

Pivotal Story
In 2003, I was facilitating an organizational change initiative where everyone had the great intention to make leaps toward a compelling vision. Momentum jumped forward and then, inexplicably, rolled back. Able to see the big picture and how fast things were changing technologically, ecologically and socially I knew that unless decision-makers seized the opportunity for growth at a personal, leadership and company level, companies would fail to adapt.

Being brought up by a professional naturalist and wildlife photographer and world traveller makes it easy for me to see systemic inter-relationships along with what no one is paying attention to. Nature is a master of using complexity to manage resilience. Using simple principles to expand leadership and business agility, resilience and great workplaces, people can bring their whole selves to work. All powered by decision making awareness at accelerated heights!

A world traveller, adventurer, progressive thinker, and trailblazer I’m a self-confessed lover of the intersection between the power of the human spirit, learning from every experience and interdisciplinary thinking.
