Le véritable voyage de découverte ne consiste pas à chercher de nouveaux paysages, mais à avoir de nouveaux yeux.

The true voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.

Adaptive Thinking

Today’s most urgent social challenges are complex, messy, and have no clear remedy. In order to address these challenges, leaders will be required to go beyond traditional ways of thinking and standard operating procedures. At Insight we draw on Adaptive Leadership – a framework pioneered at Harvard Kennedy School and backed by over 35 years of research – to help our clients understand the nature of challenges they are facing and develop the strategies needed to address them.


Scenario Planning

Our facilitated scenario planning can help organizations think about the future, plan for success and shape their trajectory. Whether tasked with managing growth, making high-stakes decisions, restructuring, or imagining new ventures, scenario planning can help elucidate potential future contexts and align key stakeholders around strategic direction. The end result is flexible, allowing organizations to adapt to a changing environment while remaining focused on their overall goals. 


Systems Mapping

Understanding how structures, stakeholders, beliefs, and decisions in a given system are interrelated is a key skill for the adept leader. Systems are complex - full of hidden issues, conflict, and unexpected opportunities. Through mapping exercises that help organizations and individuals understand how systems are structured and function, Insight helps our clients impact change in those systems in a meaningful and durable way.
