Course Content

This intensive, interactive 2-day program is based on the leadership development process described in the Fifth Discipline by Peter Senge. The essence of leadership concerns the capacity of a human community to shape its future. The workshop delves into both personal and inherently collective aspects of systems thinking in leadership. Special attention is given to the domains of personal mastery, mental models and systems thinking as they apply to leading and initiating meaningful change. Participants connect with and benefit from the perspectives of colleagues from a diverse range of organisations from around their regions.


  • Learn and practice the five disciplines of organisational learning.
  • Understand how underlying systemic structures shape behavior and how to recognise and shift those structures.
  • Develop a vision for your organisation.
  • Facilitate conversations that promote learning and collaboration.
  • Experience the development of a learning community amongst participants.
  • Gain a new set of tools and an understanding about how to facilitate meaningful change, both for yourself and within your community or organization. 
  • Make a profound connection between personal mastery and systems thinking, seeing that deep change in systems and in oneself are inseparable from each other.
