A Systems Approach to Leading and Managing: Creating Shared Mental Models for Better Decision Outcomes

What You’ll Learn

Systems Thinking is the study of a system and its parts to help leaders approach challenges, change, and interactions across an organization with a heightened sense of understanding and clarity.  As leaders and employees adopt a Systems Thinking approach, they make more informed decisions, manage more effectively, and understand how they can impact the organization. A Systems Thinking leader is often much more engaged and takes responsibility for engaging others, building culture, and promoting mental models that serve the organization well and aid in making informed and strategic decisions.

  • Explore how Systems Thinking can address complex and simple challenges with people and processes, and explore how actions impact the whole
  • Analyze and practice using a strategy that can improve thinking, clarity, and decision making across any challenge
  • Examine and practice key thinking strategies to “know what to do when you do not know what to do.”
  • Apply principles of metacognition, shared mental models, and other System-related theories to case studies to adopt best practices in driving change and leading across the organization
