Rerun: Advanced Systems Thinking and Systems Coaching
- April 15, 2020, 12:00 pm - April 29, 2020, 2:00 pm ( CEST )
- ONLINE TRAINING
- NO TICKETS AVAILABLE
Using real cases, participants deepen their understanding of navigating Climate-KIC’s systems innovation process and create the capability to tweak and adapt new and existing tools that are fit for the context they are in. The course will deepen aspects of mindsets and behaviour from a systems perspective and provide insights about how to design and deliver workshops that change mindsets and create capacity for change agents.
The experience will be fully online. We will offer those in modules of 2 hours each that will be spread across a few days (15, 17, 22 & 29 April 2020), with maximum two modules per day.
Specific Topics that will be addressed in this training
- Understanding how mindsets and belief systems drive operational systems
- Appreciating what is going on inside our brains when we resist change
- Exploring the nature of different operational systems and contexts
- How to create, and use, a knowledge system in facilitating systems innovation
- A portfolio approach in defining experiments for intervening in a system
- How to support others in systems innovation processes through coaching and process design
Approach of the training
The course is an experiential learning opportunity. Participants will ‘learn by doing’ along a set of challenges and contexts, including a case study from the Deep Demonstration work. This supports participants in bringing the learnings and tools into their own work. An important part of the learning process will be reflecting with oneself and others, and sharing thoughts and experience with each other.
Please note: THIS IS AN ONLINE COURSE: The online modules will have the same objectives and breadth of topics as previously announced. However, in some areas we will not go as deeply into details as we have initially planned.
Participants will leave the training with:
- An understanding of how systems thinking is used to map complex, long-term challenges, define a portfolio of experiments and create a knowledge system.
- Advanced tools to explore complex challenges, such as the deep demonstration challenges.
- Insights into systems thinking mindsets and how these can be developed.
- Approaches to coaching change agents in systems innovation processes.

Systems Innovation train-the-trainers goes online - We will be offering this course as online learning experience free of charge.
We decided to cancel the Systems Innovation training weeks due to the coronavirus situation and offer them online. It was not an easy decision but the only possible one to take, as it is important that we support all the efforts taken by our societies to slow-down the infection rate of the virus and to protect the most vulnerable ones around us
