MOBIUS CARES A FREE SEMINAR SERIES

a series of free weekly seminars on topics to support you in these complex times

Exceptional times call for exceptional support. Mobius recommends the following offerings to advance our collective and individual capacities to rise to what is demanded of leaders, change practitioners, and each of us as individuals to come through this crisis into newly imagined futures.

At a time when most of the world is experiencing intense resource and mobility constraints, it helps to understand where our leverage for guiding change lies in three dimensions. Tune in to our latest Seminar to find out more from David Stroh and Marilyn Paul. David is a Mobius Senior Expert and author of Systems Thinking for Social Change and Marilyn Paul, a close Mobius Friend, is the author of An Oasis in Time.

The world is panicking and our leaders are stressed, and yet we need emergent, innovative thinking now more than ever – how can we best support them through these challenging times?

In this conversation with leadership coach Jennifer Cohen we dive into the nature of shock responses, how to help stressed leaders reorient towards possibility, development beyond “self” and redefining what service means.

Join Anne Gottlieb, actor, writer, and Director of Mobius's Presence Practice in this highly experiential, somatic workshop. Anne will guide us into the dimensions that hold our sense of support, interconnectedness, wisdom, intuition, beauty and imagination. These embodied practices allow us to access tremendous generativity as leaders during this transitional time.

In ordinary times it takes focus and discipline to meet the world with the best of who we are. When the world around us falls apart, we need even more conviction to live and lead using the full range of our inner intelligences. Reflect on your own Hero's Journey with Erica Ariel Fox, Author of "Winning from Within", Mobius Chief Thought Leader and Mobius Co-Founder.

Explore the first step in designing from the possible, not from the predictable. This is an embodied process. We must practice that which we can become by discerning the new organizing principle around which we center ourselves. Jennifer Cohen is the Co-Founder of Seven Stones Leadership, a Somatic Expert and a Mobius Transformational Faculty member.

What is the background to the current global crisis situation with the #coronavirus #pandemic? What do we need now and what are the prospects? What role does collective trauma and absencing play? In contrast, attention and awareness is the real super power today.

During the global pandemic, a palpable sense of collective grief has emerged. Grief expert David Kessler says that grief is actually multiple feelings that we must manage. In an interview with HBR, he explains how the classic five stages of grief (denial, anger, bargaining, sadness, acceptance) apply today, and the practical steps we can take to manage the anxiety. Those include balancing bad thoughts with good; focusing on the present; letting go of things you can’t control; and stocking up on compassion. Kessler also talks about a sixth stage of grief: meaning. After acceptance, he says, we will find meaning in the hard-to-fathom events and we will be stronger for it.

“The most powerful force we have right now in the battle against coronavirus is the human mind's ability to adapt,” writes Arzhang Kamarei, Mobius Executive Coach. Arzhang outlines 3 steps to harness your organization’s adaptability.

Mobius Executive Leadership CEO Amy Elizabeth Fox writes, "I am privileged to have been interviewed by McKinsey & Company, along with Thomas Hübl, an expert on personal and collective trauma, for this article on empathy and compassion. As the crisis continues it will become more and more apparent that the qualities of attunement, deep listening, and authentic care are essential capacities for senior leaders guiding their organizations through these unpredictable times."
