Here's what participants in our recent two-day Leading Systemic Change workshop had to say:

  • This is one of the most useful, practical, engaging (even fun!), and informative workshops I've experienced in years.
  • Superb, detailed overview. Excellent instruction and interactions.
  • Facilitators led us through very difficult and complex territory by meeting us where we were at, starting with issues of concern to us, and easing us into causal loop diagrams in a very gentle and appealing way.
  • The presenters' flow and ability to complement each other in the presentation process made a very rich experience of learning information that could easily leave one cold.
  • Gave me lots of insights.
