March 1, 2018 You depend on videoconference, emails, texts, and other social media to connect with co-workers and clients. Sometimes you find ways to work together well. Other times you miss the mark. How can you accomplish anything when you work in different places? HSD offers tools and ideas to help you set conditions for effective virtual team work that gets things done.
February 1, 2018 You leave work stressed out. You wake in the night and can’t get back to sleep. You dread Monday and can’t wait for Friday. Increased conflict, physical and mental health problems, difficulty with relationships, and low energy—all are signs of stress at dangerous levels. What can you do to help yourself and your team leverage the stress you feel into creative tension you can use? HSD offers a perspective for re-energizing and mobilizing.
December 14, 2017 Join us to hear 2-3 HSD Professionals share their HSD stories about how they use HSD principles, models, and methods to change their worlds every day.
December 7, 2017 People are overwhelmed with an explosion of diversity across all areas of their lives. There are too many differences, too many choices, too many decisions to be made. But when we deal with that diversity by isolating into separate silos, we find that those silos are actually connected with each other in myriad ways. HSD offers models and methods, perspectives and tools that help you leverage those differences into an integrated whole. It shows how to build your own path to the fix that fits you and your organization.
November 2, 2017 The question of “scaling up” is a challenge to organizations of all kinds these days. Political activists spread their particular form of rhetoric, engaging more people in broader discussions of social issues. Business owners push to compete in ever-expanding markets. People find local solutions to challenging issues, brand their ideas as “best practice,” and take them to the market. The challenge is that change is a localized phenomenon. Even the largest scale changes of our times happened one person, one household, or one business at a time. We live in a diverse world, and while our needs may be similar, the solutions for those needs may not be. How do you know when you can merely replicate someone else’s solution or when innovation is the best path? And if you choose to innovate, what does that mean in your local landscape? HSD recognizes that there is no one right answer to those questions. What it offers is a way to see the challenge in actionable and useful ways so that you can look at options in your local context and find the path that is right for you.
October 5, 2017 How can two things be true at one time? And when they are, how do you make meaning in ways that can inform useful choices? We live in a time of paradox: Global change relies on local action. People live longer today, even as doctors talk about a global epidemic of common diseases. Social media puts us in touch 24/7, yet people express feelings of disconnection and isolation. In HSD, we recognize that irreconcilable differences often emerge from the same pattern, and we use Adaptive Action and Pattern logic to navigate those differences. Standing in inquiry, exploring paradoxes in our world, we build Adaptive Capacity and resilience in the face of the complexity that threatens to overwhelm us.
