Action Inquiry Associates
AIA integrates the new science of vertical learning, known for radically improving a leader’s ability to navigate today’s highly complex environment while generating the organizational transformation that is required. Mary Stacey co-founded AIA with Bill Torbert and a global network of academics and practitioners, who have since developed the Global Leadership Profile.
Artists are society’s most daring visionaries. Never knowing precisely where their actions will lead, they creatively embrace emerging realities. Over the years we have partnered with Arawana Hayashi, David Whyte, Eleanor Lowden Pidgeon, Martin Hayes, Michael Jones, and Sandy McMullen to cultivate forms of leadership that are more spontaneous, systemic, and adaptive.
Authentic Leadership in Action (ALIA) Institute
ALIA is a convener of pioneering leaders and networks who are implementing positive change. It is also a place of applied learning and skill-building in the art and practice of authentic leadership, systems change, and social innovation. Context has had a variety of collaborations with ALIA since 2001, including the Multigenerational Leadership Exchange, the Remarkable Leadership Series, and the annual Summer Institute.
Burren College of Art
The Burren, a microcosm of society, provides a rich context from which to connect with wider issues. BCA is a hothouse for artists, and the artist’s ability to access spontaneous action and true creativity offers a great deal to leadership practice. Context’s partnerships with BCA around issues of global significance have included the 2013 Climate Gathering.
Centre for Social Innovation
The Centre for Social Innovation is a social enterprise with a mission to catalyze social innovation around the world. CSI believes that new innovations are key to turning society’s unprecedented challenges into opportunities to improve our communities and our planet. Context’s Toronto office is housed at CSI and we are an active member of the CSI community.
International Leadership Association
The International Leadership Association (ILA) is the global network for all those who practice, study, and teach leadership. The ILA promotes a deeper understanding of leadership knowledge and practices for the greater good of individuals and communities worldwide.
Kingbridge Collaboration Institute
Founded by Boston Scientific’s John Abele, the Institute is a neutral host for leaders and thinkers to come together to forge partnerships and build capacity for collaborative innovation. Mary Stacey is one of the Institute’s trusted advisors.
World Café Community Foundation
Today’s business strategies require approaches that build leadership at every level of the organization. We use innovative approaches such as The World Café to ‘bring the whole system into the room’ and build engagement and strategic alignment. We partner with organizations such as The World Cafe Community Foundation, which is dedicated to enabling the development and dissemination of the World Café and other innovative dialogue and collective intelligences practices.
