Systems Thinking Program


Systems Thinking for business owners is a one-day course that examines the role of comprehensive systemic thinking in managing projects and workflow. We use models created by Dr. Peter Senge as well as other practitioners in the field. It is an incredibly robust course where business owners can apply what they learn from the program on the day they return to their work.

Objectives of the course include:

  1. Allowing business owners and managers to think more systemically
  2. Understanding the characteristics of a systems
  3. Knowing a leader’s role in their system
  4. Differentiating leadership behavior from management behavior
  5. Applying systems archetypes to chronic issues so they stay solved
  6. Linking Systems Thinking to other leadership disciplines

There are many different learning styles and preferences, and the program adapts to all of them. There are large group interactive activities as well as small group work and one-on-ones. These are primarily creative and innovative activities that will have participants challenging their previous ways of problem-solving and leading.

In terms of the pedagogy of the class, there will be several “lecturettes,” but the focus will be on a wide variety of interactive activities that require the experience and the wisdom in the room to accentuate and enhance the learning.
