An Exploration of the Uncanny and Mystical Influences on Leadership, in the Context of Rising Technological Complexity and Declining Organisational Certainty.

We are currently in a period of extreme uncertainty bordering on collapse, where once familiar organisational structures are now unfamiliar, exposing the uncanny and mystical in the gap between a potential new techno-social order and our psycho-social responses. Might leadership which is able to embrace what Bion referred to as ‘negative capability’ have an advantage in building organisational cultures for the future, seeking to think beyond the machine metaphor? This paper seeks to understand the potential for developing leadership thinking with the emergence of the ‘other’ in such a period of dissolution and dislocation. Also, to explore how curious thinking may be developed at the edge of ontological and organisational insecurity?
