Sonja partners with people who need to navigate, make sense of, and lead in uncertainty. She spans the boundaries of leadership, organisational development & change, strategy, risk, innovation, and marketing. In short, she works wherever there is complexity, which nowadays is more or less everywhere.
Sonja teaches locally and internationally on Complexity, the Cynefin Framework (she is an Associate of The Cynefin Company), Waysfinding, and Complexity Fitness. She is certified in various individual and systemic coaching methods and a sought-after speaker, with experience at various conferences locally and internationally, including TedX.
Sonja studied Meteorology, and that background in the natural sciences gives her a unique perspective on human systems. She cut her teeth earlier in her career at PwC Consulting and IBM, before deciding to strike out on her own. Some of her clients include Ikea, Nedbank, Liberty, Momentum Metropolitan, Waters Romania, and many others.
Leadership is increasingly complex. It’s a constant challenge to keep up with the accelerated advancement of digital technologies, in both our organizations and our ways of doing business.
In pace with this exponential change is a growing desire for simplicity. Shortcuts that help us understand and implement what needs to be done. At the same time, experience and common sense tell us that there are no easy answers.
Leading a business has never been easy. There’s never been a one-size-fits-all solution for moving forward. It’s always been a flexible balancing act with an ever-changing set of parameters. The difference now is that it’s all happening faster than ever before.
That’s what Leading Complexity is all about. And the proven leadership tools, methods and perspectives that will help you keep your eyes on the prize.
