  • WHAT’S UP? WEDNESDAYS

    On the second Wednesday of every month, we will hold, sessions on areas of interest to the consulting community. Every event will be 1 hour long, beginning at 12:30 PM Eastern time.


    Leading the Charge – Challenging the Status Quo

    IT IS NOT THE GLASS CEILING THAT IS THE BARRIER – IT IS MISSING RUNGS ALONG THE CAREER LADDER

    What’s up Wednesday host Jennifer Smith, FCMC invites you to join us on March 13th, 2024. This session features Dr. Alison Konrad. As a renowned expert in organizational behaviour and gender diversity, Dr. Konrad will shed light on a crucial topic that demands our attention – the advancement of women to senior level positions.

    While barriers to female advancement were once said to be a “glass ceiling” which was coined as a metaphor to describe the barriers preventing women and other marginalized people from reaching higher levels of professional success, emerging research indicates it is more of a "Broken Rung"

    Dr. Konrad will delve into the complexities of the professional journey for women in Canada, focusing on the challenges they face at different stages of their careers. This session will not only provide insights into the broken rung phenomenon but also offer practical strategies to foster inclusivity and equity in the workplace.

    What makes this session even more enriching is the inclusion of a distinguished panel of women, featuring Leigh Harris, FCMC of KPMG and Dominique Dennery, FCMC, a seasoned leadership coach. Together, they will share their unique perspectives, experiences, and insights, adding depth to the conversation and providing valuable takeaways for our professional journeys.

    Our aim is to create an experience where everyone feels invited, inspired and included and we’d love you to come along – and bring your friends too!

    Three Horizons Thinking: A Powerful Tool

    Regenerative Governance using Three Horizons Thinking.

    Lyn McDonell FCMC, C. Dir will explore Three Horizons Thinking as a useful framework for management consultants and part of her work in developing the approach to regenerative governance.  

    Regenerative governance is a living system perspective that grafts onto conventional governance to support the transition from “business as usual” towards thriveable futures.
    Three Horizons thinking was developed by Bill Sharpe and Dr. Anthony Hodgson to be a simple structure that helps make sense of complexity in a holistic way. This model discerns three main attitudes to the future, held in the present:

    • H1 Business as usual (short range)
    • H2 Transition (mid-range)
    • H3 A perpetually thriveable vision (long range)

    It enables leaders to share a common language about the future, become aware of the different value of each horizon, and appreciate the various roles of innovation.

    Lyn has been developing the concepts of regenerative governance. A chapter on this topic will appear in The Handbook of Board Governance: A Comprehensive Guide for Public, Private, and Not-for-Profit Board Members, 3rd Edition (2024). The Three Horizons Framework is one of six frameworks Lyn has curated to activate regenerative governance.
