Leading change is difficult. And doing so across a large company or organization gets that much harder. Oftentimes this can stem from an inability to see the full picture, complexity, and set of relationships that make up a current system and what interventions will actually have the impact you hope for. Systems work in the way they are designed. And if you want to change them, you have to take a systemic approach: understanding complex relationships across multiple parts, people’s mental models, and even the ways that you (the change leader) might be invested in keeping the status quo.


In this introductory workshop, you’ll have an opportunity to learn about and identify the foundational elements of systems change and systems leadership, practice key systems change methods (e.g. systems mapping, stakeholder mapping, mental models, ladder of inference), apply systems change methods to your work, identify & plan for your further growth as a systems leader, and begin to engage in a wider systems change leadership learning community.

What People are Saying

"Anyone that can construct a sequence of conversations to lead others is a metaskill. Anyone who participates in meetings or owns an agenda would benefit from this. It is a whirlwind, but you are among others who are in charge of making an impact. This is a practical, hands-on deep dive for managers, entrepreneurs, and leaders who can change their culture by leading meetings like a pro."

Mark T.
HEAD OF SERVICES FOR MURAL

"I realized my entire role is facilitation. I have to do a lot of lateral influencing. So I use these skills even if it is not a super-structured workshop. Our product team has micro meetings all the time, and these methods help us get the most of those moments. My team can lean on me to facilitate. You will redesign the way you have conversations. I can’t believe every college student doesn’t have to take a class like this. This is how you collaborate. It is the underpinning of the future of work."
