In an increasingly uncertain and unpredictable world, senior executives need to stop hogging the decision making. Instead they need to raise their game to create an organisational culture where sense making, decision making & action taking become ever more tightly coupled, rapidly and repeatedly iterated, deeply embedded, and widely distributed throughout the organisation.

In this episode of Serene View, Serene Seng interviews Geoff Marlow about whether senior executives should give up their decision rights or not.  Geoff has spent 35 years helping organisations throughout Europe, Asia and the US create cultures that are fit for an increasingly uncertain and unpredictable future. Some great insights/observations are shared on sense making, organisational culture, leadership and innovation and how these factors relate to organisational agility and success in a fast changing world.

She works with companies to transform their organisational culture, and coach leaders towards becoming Conscious Leaders. Serene hosts a monthly panel discussion called Serene View. Constructive Argument is a movement that Serene has started to invite healthy disagreements. Too much of the online world is an echo chamber that polarises views. We either have screaming fights in which no one listens to the other, or "we are all one big happy family" repeating each other's views. Serene invites listeners to *disagree* with her and her guests and have a healthy debate for mutual understanding and learning.
