Simplify, support, share and sustain!

SmallLogoSystems thinking can be bewildering to someone who has not been steeped in its concepts and methods. It is very easy to forget what it was like when you first came across the concepts and they scared the living daylights out of you. It’s helpful to remember this when you are exposing new people to systems thinking. Use easy to understand examples, which clearly demonstrate what you are saying. Explain the words you are using to support people in developing an understanding. Then, follow that up with a real live example that they can relate to. e.g. show how you have used a method or concept in the workplace and what the outcome of using it was. Show how you might have thought about that situation without the method/ concept and then with the method/ concept; show the difference…..then do it again!
