Joan Lurie is a development psychologist and one of Australia’s leaders in systemic change & culture, known from her expert commentary in the media on organizational culture. With over 20 years of experience both as an internal change leader in organizations and as a consultant, she founded Orgonomix in 2008 with the mission to help leaders and organizations be free from the systemic patterns keeping them stuck. Joan has developed ‘Orgonomics’ – a proprietary systemic methodology, designed to help top-tier leaders fundamentally transform their businesses and thrive in the ‘gig economy’. She works with the CEOs of some of the country’s largest businesses.

In this episode of Leading Transformational Change, Joan helps us understand how a systems thinking lens can help us bring about organizational change easier and faster. To make it practical, we use a case study to explore how this would apply to an organization struggling with a lack of innovation and internal conflict.

Joan shows that, as leaders, we can never see ourselves as outside the issue with the role of fixing the organization, we instead need to see ourselves as an integral part of the system. For the system to change we need to change our own mental maps and the way we frame our roles.
