Why attend this workshop?

We experience perpetual and unpredictable change in all facets of our work and life these days. The tools and skills that served you well in the past are ineffective today. They may even make things worse! You need a new set of perspectives, models and methods to see possibilities that are hidden in the chaos of your current reality.

Human Systems Dynamics (HSD) helps you discover the simple patterns that drive your complex problems. The theory is profound enough to be simple. The stories range from the most mundane personal challenge to intractable, global issues of climate change and violent extremism. The practice is applied to your own real, wicked  issues—the ones  that keep you awake at night.

  • Understand how the dynamics of complex adaptive systems generate your intractable problems and find practical next steps to tame your own most wicked issues
  • Learn four new practices to help you see, understand, and influence the situations that keep you stuck
  • Give and receive peer coaching, as you see how your challenges are similar to and different from others’
  • Develop a simple, accessible language to help you communicate your insights and practices to help others develop their adaptive capacity
