Our world is characterized by emergent and unpredictable changes. Developing the capacity to adapt – both individually and collectively – is essential for our ability to thrive. Organizations, like any living organism, must learn to build the capacities required to effectively engage with a changing environment. Those who have the capacity to adapt have the advantage: they are the organizations who will create strategic, sustainable, systemic solutions.
My work is fundamentally rooted in my passion for social sustainability: how do organizations in all sectors ensure the long-term viability of the human systems on which they rely? I focus on organizational change, development & learning as a way to support organizational resiliency.
The name Atticus is a reference to the character Atticus Finch from the novel by Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird. Atticus, a lawyer, takes on a trial he knows he will lose because he chooses to act in accordance with his ethics. Atticus’ integrity and moral character has always been an inspiration for me. I strive to treat my colleagues, clients and community with the same dignity and respect Atticus showed to his community. To me, Atticus is a reminder to always do the right thing.
