In an increasingly complex environment, problems that persistently defy solutions despite your best efforts are likely becoming more frequent.

We find ourselves bumping up against the limits of the effectiveness of our usual problem-defining and problem-solving approaches. It's not that we need to abandon our usual approaches; rather, we need to expand them. 

Organisations are systems, and when we learn to see the relationship between structure and behaviour in our system, we can understand how we might shift structures to enable different/better behaviour patterns. That is systems thinking.

LG Professionals SA is pleased to present this one-day masterclass with guest international facilitator Dr Barry Bales. The program will introduce systems thinking skills that will enable you to effectively define and address organisational challenges. To make this program as practical as possible, participants will practise using their new systems thinking concepts in addressing a real organisational challenge they currently face.

Who should attend? Those in mid or higher-level leadership roles who already have substantial leadership skills and experience
