October 1, 2020 Complex change cannot be predicted or controlled. It comes in bursts amid long periods of stillness and silence. It happens for individuals, groups, or whole communities in different ways and at different times. It brings unintended consequences and wonderful surprises. In this session, we will explore the hows and whys of complex change and share some fundamental tools to see, understand, and influence it.
September 17, 2020 We continued our discussion of next steps for the HSD community, by sharing the self-organizing efforts going on around the globe.
September 3, 2020 Every complex system sits on top of irresolvable tensions:  speed and quality; identity and flexibility; tradition and innovation; centralized and distributed; and many more. We used to manage these tensions by tradeoffs and compromise, but that didn’t always work. As uncertainty and complexity grow, those tactics lose even more of their power. Instead, HSD helps you embrace underlying tensions to generate energy and opportunity. In this session, learn to use Interdependent Pairs to transform your dilemmas into possibilities. 
August 6, 2020 When you cannot predict or control the environment, the only way to thrive is to see and respond to what IS—whatever it is. Success in an uncertain future is not determined by internal skills and choices. It is not driven by environments and circumstances. True, sustainable, success relies on the fit between external situations and internal choices. This session explores three systemic features (sensitive, responsive, robust) that lead to success in a “fit for function” world.
June 18, 2020 HSD was made for times like these! COVID-19, police brutality, natural disasters, and political unrest are all wicked, wicked problems. HSD practitioners around the world work with others to transform these problems into patterns of possibility for people, institutions, and communities. In this month's Quarterly Virtual Mini-Conference, Associates will host a dialogue about how they use HSD and what they see as the future of the HSD Community of Praxis. Join us for a bit of time traveling and connection!
June 4, 2020 Individuals create political patterns for themselves and others. At the same time, the political patterns force individual choices and behaviors. That’s part of the complexity of living and working in complex systems. Whether you work with an underperforming employee, transform corporate culture, or advocate for social justice, you must understand the nature of emergent patterns before you can shift them. In this session, you will learn about powerful, destructive patterns that emerge in complex systems. At the same time, you’ll discover ways to understand and influence them as your future unfolds.
May 7, 2020 In human systems, difference holds the energy for change. Adaptive Action helps you use that energy to navigate difference in human systems. Many approaches to equity and diversity generate fear. They sap energy from individuals and communities. In HSD, we offer an approach that transforms energy of difference into possibility. Set conditions for individuals to participate fully in the community of the future: Stand in inquiry; Grant and generate voice; Focus on differences that make a difference; Care for healthy boundaries. Join this session to explore how you can generate energy to create equity and social justice in times of radical uncertainty.
