Breaking the Cycle of Chronic Problems: Your ways of operating are perfectly designed to give you exactly what you have!

Have you ever had a problem that you "solved" over and over again? Or a situation that recurred no matter whom you hired to fill a position? Well, clearly there is more going on than meets the eye. You are caught in a "systemic structure" that is perfectly designed to give you the results you keep producing. This course can help you get out of the cycle by teaching you to "see" and "hear" the forces at play. Once the forces are identified, you can locate one or more opportunities to break the cycle and start producing desired results.

The standard teaching approach is to introduce a particular framework or tool, have participants practice new skills, and apply those skills to a business challenge in order to develop powerful new insights and strategies. There is limited reliance on lecture and strong emphasis on having participants work together in new ways. One of the key components involves the active and deliberate use of reflection and group inquiry about the practice and application of the theory, methodology, and/or tools and the group's collective learnings.
