Glenda Eoyang, founder of the field of HSD, hosts free, online Virtual Workshops (webinars) every month. Covering topics from health care to education reform to world peace, she draws on current events, global opportunities and concerns, and local actions. You will be invited to stand in inquiry about some of today’s most salient and intractable questions. Join us on the first Thursday of each month (except January and July) at 11a - 12p CDT. Register, even if you cannot attend, and you will receive a link to the archive recording to view at your leisure.

Each quarter, we hold an HSD Community Gathering where members of the HSD Community share how they are using HSD in their work, in their homes, or in their communities. Join us for these 90-minute sessions, 11a - 12:30p CDT, that highlight and celebrate the patterns of diverse applications and deep innovations that HSD Professionals are creating in the world.

Upcoming Live Virtual Workshops and HSD Community Gatherings

Find Success in Uncertainty

October 7, 2021

We live in a world that is uncertain and unpredictable. We see individuals, families, communities floundering as they deal with today’s challenges:

  • Encounter forces they can’t predict, control, or even imagine
  • Face a broadly diverse range of experiences, individuals, and opportunities that are often contradictory and confusing
  • Experience that their lives are entangled with others’ decisions and actions

Join this webinar to learn about specific competencies required to thrive in such a world. We will explore what we need to learn for ourselves; to teach our children; to encourage our employees; and to connect with our neighbors and our larger communities. 

Create Community

November 4, 2021

Creating and/or maintaining a strong community can be difficult when the world is changing as quickly and unpredictably as it is today. The current rate and degree of change bring pressure that increases the challenge at all scales. To connect with others and create strong, resilient communities, you have to be able to navigate the complexity of the 21st century.

  • Address issues of power and collaboration
  • Hold differences as you seek shared perspectives
  • Engage everyone in authentic and reciprocal ways

In this webinar you will learn a tool about engaging in generative ways that open space of innovation and connection in the midst of complex change. Use this tool to explore connections at all scales: interpersonal, organizational, and community.

Prepare for 2022 and Hold Your Plans Lightly

December 2, 2021

In this decade of massive and unpredictable change, your days are shaped by uncertainty and turbulence. Plans for the day are obsolete by mid-morning, and the week’s calendar is completely reworked by noon on Monday. Beyond the week? Trying to plan that far in advance, feels like it gives you only two choices: 1) Stick with the plan, no matter what; or 2) Give up on planning altogether.

How do you plan when you can’t know what’s coming tomorrow? How do you prepare for a future you just cannot see, but you want and need the anchor or touch point that having a plan offers?

  • Make sense of trends and patterns that shape your life
  • Rely on local context, resources, and information
  • Build Adaptive Capacity into the structure of your plan

Join this webinar to find ways to create and live a plan that anchors day-to-day decisions, adapts to constant change and interruption, and moves toward the vision you hold for the future.
