Systems Thinking Series: Understanding and Applying the Habits of a Systems Thinker
- Organizer: Waters Center for Systems Thinking
- Venue: Virtual
Whether it be at work, home, school, or in relationships with colleagues or family members, the Habits of a Systems Thinker can help you discover high-leverage solutions to complex problems. If you’ve found yourself thinking, “the way we have been doing things is not producing the results we want,” or “I need a solution to a problem and I don’t know where to start,” this workshop is for you.
In this 3-hour collaborative workshop, you will gain a deep understanding of each of the 14 Habits of a Systems Thinker and discover how to use them to directly address and overcome areas of concern in your system of interest. For example, how to: break down barriers and silos between teams/departments to reach common goals; overcome communication challenges, including lack of a shared understanding and difficulty incorporating diverse perspectives; and expand thinking to see things differently and more critically in order to come up with new, lasting solutions.
Each participant will be mailed a set of Habits of a Systems Thinker™ cards. Registration must be received at least 2 weeks prior to the workshop date to guarantee delivery of cards before the workshop.
