Developing management practices enabling sustainability: the cognitive leader

Assuming a driver role in our organisations’ facilitation of and resilience for this profound transition, managers need to adapt their posture and management practices. They lead change in an unknown, complex and volatile environment. They make decisions having to process large quantities of data that are often incomplete. They engage stakeholders from cross-functional networks, with different and sometimes competing priorities, often working in silos. They nurture innovation while also scale up promising solutions. In this environment, successful management entails managers unlearning old ways of doing and learning new core people-centric competencies . Our cognitive approach to leadership development allows us to support managers in developing soft skills for sustainability based on four meta-cognitive competencies: creating common meaning, caring for oneself, others and our environment, building collaborative networks and conceiving simplifying stories.
