We are excited to announce that we will be hosting a Leading in Complexity workshop by Eunoia Leadership, on 7 February.
As you may know, we have been working with Eunoia Leadership in Sweden for some time now and this workshop will be a new milestone for our partnership.
The workshop was designed by Eunoia's expert consultants, Mohamed Maher and Anna Rosengren. In this blog post, I would like to tell you more about Maher. We have been working together since 2015, which is why I can help you picture how the workshop is going to be shaped by his lively spirit and heavy experience, his deep perceptiveness and his playfulness.
Before telling you about Maher's innovations for leading in complexity, let me tell you about some of his experiences with leadership and cultural complexities. Some of his unusual experiences include working on two peacekeeping missions for the UN during his time in the military. He has also had an unusual perspective on the Arab Spring. Maher worked in Egypt as a leadership and organisational development consultant, in both private companies and government organisations. He worked among the complexities as the Egyptian Revolution of 2011 started, as the social systems changed, regressed and progressed again.
Maher started his career in the Egyptian military, mostly working in human resources. Then, in 2006, he changed career tracks to start working as a leadership and organisational behaviour consultant. As a lot of his work depended on assessments, he started questioning the focus of existing leadership assessments, which focused on displayed behaviours and neglected the deeper capacities that make up intuitive thinking. So, by 2010, he had created a new methodology for leadership assessments, which he later expanded into a culture assessment. And following the success of his innovative tools, he co-founded Eunoia Leadership in Sweden. Over the last few years, Maher has worked in the Middle East and Europe as an expert in leadership, organisational behaviour and quantitative culture analysis.
We look forward to introducing you to him in the upcoming leadership training workshop, where he will share his extensive experience and valuable insight on how leadership ties to organisational complexities and effectiveness.
