Individualized Application, Coaching & Consulting

Are you or your team interested in talking about how to apply systems thinking to your own complex situation? Let's have a conversation.

I can help you and your team develop skills in:


  • asking more systemic questions
  • increase shared understanding of an issue by making the dynamics of a system visible using systems thinking tools and
  • identifying high-(versus low-)leverage ways to intervene

Contact me and we can discuss your specific needs.

 

Public and In-house Workshops

My colleagues Steve Byers, Colleen Ponto and I conduct systems thinking public workshops about throughout the Pacific Northwest. We also customize in-house workshops and strategy sessions for intact groups interested in learning together about systems thinking and how to better understand their complex issues they are all facing..

Email me to learn more about the workshops.
