Course Description

Systems thinking is a holistic approach to problem solving. In practice, it means taking a step back to understand how different systems interact, and using that information to design more meaningful solutions.

In this seminar, learn a unique approach to systems thinking as a method and tool for working with change, solving complex problems, and creating individual and team learning. Systems thinking expert, Peter Senge, defines systems thinking as both a thinking skill and a language for understanding and working with complexity. When you understand the complexity of a situation, you are better able to think and act in ways that produce desired results.
