A System Leader’s Fieldbook

Gaining traction on today’s ever-more complex challenges requires collective leadership. That means practicing new ways of operating at the levels of Self, Team, Organization, and System. This online Fieldbook provides tools and resources for system leaders to use in supporting people and groups as they develop the skills to accelerate progress on intractable problems together.

To make real and lasting change, we need to:

Recognize that we are part of the systems we seek to change: Self
Interact productively with—and learn from—others: Team
Collaborate across internal stakeholder groups: Organization
Work across boundaries to co-create the future: System

Developing Systems-wise People

“Change must start from within—with deep self-awareness. We start by identifying and discussing what each individual already has—their roots—and we work with them as they learn from a mentor and practice by doing.”
