Now is the time to embark on your HSD learning journey—to build adaptive capacity as you deal with the complexity and uncertainty today and in the future. Learn to work with others to shape a new adaptive normal in the complexity of the coming months.

In the turbulence of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty of whatever comes next, the complex choices and consequences we face are unpredictable and uncontrollable. It’s clear that traditional ways of seeing and understanding the world are no longer sufficient to help us adjust and adapt. The human systems dynamics vision reflects the power of HSD to provide a path for problem solving and decision making in a world you cannot predict or control. 

People everywhere thrive, because we see patterns clearly, seek to understand, and act with courage to transform turbulence and uncertainty into possibility for all.

You will build your ability to:

  • Lead in Complexity
  • Build Adaptive Capacity
  • Plan in Uncertainty
  • Manage Complex Change
  • Collaborate to Create Community

The HSD Professional Certification provides:

  • Five sessions of deep-dive real-time, online learning
  • Three months of continued real-time and asynchronous engagement and practice
  • State-of-the-art HSD theory and practice to navigate your real-life challenges in the current complexity of COVID-19 and the uncertainty you face in its wake
  • A vibrant, online learning ecology of live webinars, forums, resources, dialogues, and social media
  • Collaboration with your learning group and your HSD-Certified Praxis Partner as you build your own unique approach
  • Opportunities to see, understand, and influence patterns toward health and well-being for yourself and others
  • Lifetime membership in the HSD Associate Network

On completing the program, you will:

  • Use inquiry to navigate the present and create the future
  • Foster and implement a culture of change and innovation
  • Use new perspectives and models to find your best fit in the uncertainty of today’s COVID-19 and tomorrow’s post-pandemic world
  • Encourage meaningful dialogue across diverse groups to define and shape the new normal in that world
  • Facilitate change more effectively and neutralize institutional and systemic dysfunction
  • Overcome the difficult challenges of leadership, collaboration, learning, planning, and change management for yourself and your community

Marta Lorenzo Rodriguez, OXFAM International Regional Director, Middle East and North Africa, describes her experience of the impact of the HSD Professional training:
The truth is that HSD is now part of my life. Once you see how it works you can no longer go back to your default mode. It’s like when a baby goes from crawling to walking. Why would you crawl again when you can walk? This journey is exciting and challenging at the same time and that’s the beauty. I feel privileged to be part of the HSD community.
