THREE WAYS TO GAIN CLARITY

choose from these three approaches to gain clarity on the system you seek to change.

1.
systems for strategic action

a deep dive into your system to surface insights and leverage points to inform your strategy.

2.
become unstuck

bring systems thinking into an existing project to help you move through a foggy patch and find your next step. 

2.
systems coaching  

one-on-one coaching for leaders to navigate the system and it's emergent, dynamic and complex nature.

1.
systems for strategic action

in a time bounded effort of 8 weeks we apply systems thinking methods with your team to:

  • uncover what is driving undesirable outcomes
  • identify new system outcomes you want to work towards
  • clarify the contributions your specific organization can make to shift the system towards these outcomes
  • identify the preconditions required to achieve these outcomes 
  • integrate these outcomes with your  organization's existing efforts to identify where to amplfiy existing work, introduce new efforts or coordinate with others in the system


details

  • weekly facilitated workshops
  • collected documentation of systems learning journey
  • outline of your organization's systems informed strategy

2.
become unstuck

in a 3 hour deep dive your team is led through a reflection and learning process to surface new insights that enable them to take their first next step in their complex system. systems action learning (SAL) is an agile and efficient way to introduce a systems based approach to existing projects because it can be applied in a just-in-time approach. importantly SAL introduces systems perspectives into project work, without having to overhaul or redesign an entire project in order for it to ‘take a systems approach.’ the process involves:

  • reflecting on the current situation and system within the context of the project
  • applying 1-2 systems thinking methods
  • identifying new systems insights
  • adapting the project based on on the new insights


details

  • 3 hour deep dive
  • reflection template prior to session for team to engage with
  • summary of session and insights
  • facilitation guides of systems tools utilized
