Systems Sensibility for Leadership Development

Systems Sensibility—one of the twelve recommended leadership development competencies—includes:

  • The ability to understand that we are all interconnected and interrelated.
  • Understanding that a change in one part can have an effect on the other parts, even if we can’t see direct causation.
  • Developing the practice and skill of looking at systems as a whole
  • Understanding the idea of mental models and how we can challenge our own.

Core Values

We respect and participate in the interconnected web of all existence grounded in our growing understanding of systems from the discoveries of Quantum Physics, Process Theology and American Pragmatism.

Practices

  • Participate in Study/Reflection groups with others who are developing their own systems sensibility.
  • "Getting on the Balcony"
