Why Systems Leadership
Our Key Pillars
The Systems Thinking and Leadership approach is key to addressing the current complexity and volatility, faced by many local and global companies.
Systems Thinking is a way of seeing and talking about reality that helps us better understand and work with systems to influence the quality of life. Furthermore, because it offers a range of techniques and devices for visually capturing and communicating about systems, it is also a set of tools.
Ultimately, to be a true systems thinker, one would need to know how systems fit into the larger context of day-to-day life, how they behave, and how to manage them. We therefore need to understand the structures, connections and interrelationships in these systems that produce complex organisational dynamics, because they influence behaviours and results.
Testimonial from SIM CSL learner
“What I learned during the class and workshop had guided me as I settled into my new roles. Knowing theories and framework behind systems leadership, it puts things into perspective at work.
What has benefitted me most was discovering myself through this 6-month course. Being able to identify my strength, weakness, and personal values, I was able to learn and improve myself in the way I lead the team, as well as how I lead my personal life.
In short, this course has placed me on the personal transformation path.
