Josie McLean has been researching, publishing and practising in the space of systems change for over 15 years. It turns out that most changes (many of which fail to deliver their intended outcomes) involve an element of systemic change that is often overlooked.
She has a solid track record of developing leadership capability within organisations to help them change themselves (systemically) and designing and delivering interventions that help people adapt.
Josie works with senior managers and executive teams who are responsible for particular changes, eg. cultural or digital transformations. Some clients are responsible for big future social issues such as climate change and sustainability. Together, she helps them apply the theory of complexity to their everyday work to lead change more effectively and retain their own inner balance.
Some people describe her as a bit of a trailblazer:
• co-founder of the Australian coaching industry and one of the first Australian credentialed coaches with the International Coach Federation. In 2009 I received the ICF global President’s Award for my qualities as a coach and service to the coaching industry in Australia.
• travelled to Harvard University to learn the adaptive leadership framework with Ron Heifetz and Marty Linsky in 2006.
• co-founder of the Climate Coaching Alliance in Nov 2019 (https://www.climatecoachingalliance.org/)
• developing systemic coaching introducing 'Complexity for Coaches: From Theory to Practice' program during September 2020.
• latest book, BIG LIttle Shifts: A practitioner's guide to complexity for organisational change and adaptation, was published in 2020. Learn more here https://the-partnership.com.au/purchasebiglittleshifts/
Her doctoral research was a practical exploration of how paradigm shifting change, to form sustainable and sustaining organisations, might be seeded. Her thesis received the Dean’s Commendation for Doctoral Thesis Excellence.
Josie’s work is not focussed by industry but rather the commonalities that emerge as we recognise that humans are at the heart of organisational life. Clients have included the ABC, Coles, NAB, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank, BHP Billiton, Homestart Finance, City of Marion, City of Onkaparinga, City of Port Phillip, Adelaide MT Lofty NRM, Leader’s Institute of SA, Courts Administration Authority, ElectraNet, Richmond Wellbeing, LHI Retirement Services.
