PML Systems Experience™

Introduction to Systems Thinking

An energetic multi-media workshop, Leading Systems™ provides a powerful framework for leaders to recognize systems in the workplace and their influence on human behaviors. Systems thinking is a practiced skill and an effective means for helping leaders see the inter-relationships, feedback loops, connections, and leverage of the underlying structures that shape their organizations and influence the ways people behave in them. The program introduces leaders to the concept of systems thinking, as they experience the pressures of playing a role in a live systems simulation and learn about decision making in a complex environment.
