Facilitator: Bec Davison & Steffi Bednarek
The word ‘leader’ represents the delicate ecological interplay between self, others and the world. We are not separate from the world and the world is not separate from us. Learning how we are in relationship with ourselves, others and the world can allow new forms of responsive and regenerative leadership to emerge.

The very word leader can exclude women – even those in leadership positions.
The dominant narrative of the heroic leader is so intrinsically woven into the cultural fabric that it is hard for us to have consciousness about the ways it tells us who to be, how to be and what to be. This is how the status quo is often replicated by the insidious patterns that sneak into many change initiatives.
Bec and Steffi believe in disrupting the conscious and unconscious messages that have been internalised by many.
The course will use a 3-phase integrative approach, to experience self in world, self from world and how to experiment our way forward with different perspectives. The aim of the course is to disrupt the conscious and unconscious messages that have been internalised by many.

Bec started her career working with people experiencing homelessness, and later with those who faced the additional challenges of severe and enduring mental health issues, after her degree in social philosophy. This journey deepened her commitment to serving socially excluded populations. To expand her knowledge and skills, she pursued a Masters in Social Work, where she delved into the study of systemic discrimination and complex systems.
While she appreciated the insights gained from obtaining an MBA, she felt a calling towards systems thinking and complexity, as a means of understanding how to navigate relationships with oneself, others, and world. Bec has taken her learning into working with those who experience systemic discrimination including women and those from the global majority. Bec believes that without growing consciousness of self, others and world, we are at risk of compounding the very systems that harm.
