Leading Complex Systems - ONLINE

Leading Complex Systems is an exciting, highly relevant and real-world driven five-day program designed to fully engage leaders in furthering their capacity to lead the systems they work in and with. When we see issues and challenges in our systems as being caused by our unique circumstances and driven by the various individual personalities involved, then so too are our strategies to fix, fire or rotate the person. The Leading Complex Systems program changes this pattern and focuses on helping participants learn to provide leadership that addresses issues systemically rather than personally. Through the application of experiential learning designs, participants quickly learn and apply essential systems leadership strategies to projects and challenges they bring with them to the program.
