Episode 7: Navigating Complex Systems


stepping in podcastFor this episode we’re joined by faculty member Julie Engel. In her work with hundreds of individuals and organizations, Julie has deeply studied how we orient to systems. She has found that understanding the realities in which we’re living helps us avoid being swept up and reactive. Julie elucidates four types of systems, gives several resources for taking up our own study of them, and offers practices to keep ourselves grounded in the midst of chaos and complexity.

Here is some of the work mentioned in this episode:
Dave Snowden, Cognitive Edge
Dan Siegel, Mindsight Institute
David Rock, NeuroLeadership
Pat Ogden, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy
