Joan Lurie

Founder & CEO – Orgonomics


I am the CEO of Orgonomics, a company I founded in 2008 to assist leaders and organisations to transform themselves and to function at their growing edge. My work integrates strategy, systems thinking, complexity, social construction and adult development theory. I work with boards, executives and leadership teams to help them rewire their thinking to be more systemic, and to design and lead complex adaptive and second-order change in their organisations. With over 20 years of practice and experience, I have taken up both internal corporate as well as consulting roles, helping companies achieve turnaround results – emerging new cultures, operating models and different organisational systems, whilst simultaneously building their adaptive capacity. Through this practice and experimentation, I have developed Orgonomics™ – a proprietary methodology which provides a ‘map’ for leaders to navigate the emerging complexity we face in the new economic landscape. Referred to as ground-breaking, Orgonomics™ enables leaders to fundamentally transform their ways of seeing and knowing; reframe their assumptions and mental maps and repattern their organisational systems for new ways of relating and operating, to achieve higher order functioning and performance. As a developmental psychologist and systemic change leader my core purpose is to ensure that leaders and organisations are able to continuously develop, adapt and grow to be fit for and thrive in our complex, ambiguous, uncertain and volatile context. Functioning at our growing edge and developing our adaptive muscle used to be a ‘nice to have’, but it has now become our individual and organisational imperative; we have to accelerate it for the good of our whole ecology.
