Selling Systems Thinking

You want me to buy what?

Gene Bellinger26 min ago

A few years ago, one day when I was feeling more presumptuous than usual, I began the development of a “Systems Thinker Certification” course on Udemy. In case you’re unfamiliar with Udemy, it’s a site where people create courses for others, some free, some for a fee.

Since I was pretty set on how I wanted to put this together it only took a few days to get it finished and online. As to just what the course contained we can save that for another newsletter. The relevant aspect here is what happened after the course went live.

The first few people who went through the course gave it very positive reviews. Reviews so positive in fact that I sort of thought I was being punked. As these positive reviews continued I began to feel really awesome about this course. And then the OMG! moment happened. As part of one reviewers feedback they asked the following question…

This is all wonderful, but how do I sell Systems Thinking to my organization?
