The Seeing Systems workshop is a dynamic, yawn-free experience that focuses on the worlds of Tops, Middles, Bottoms and Customers (also consumers/clients) during turbulent times in organizations. We will get to the heart of partnership in organization life - what makes partnership so critical, what gets in the way of it developing, and what the role of leadership is in making it happen. This visceral approach enables the learning to get beyond the head level to where it really hits home and sticks.

Through this workshop, participants will:

  • Understand intellectually and experience viscerally the differing "worlds" of Tops, Middles, Bottoms, and Customers, and begin to develop concrete strategies for working more constructively across organizational lines;
  • Recognize the multiplicity of roles they play, as sometimes Top, Middle, Bottom and Customer/Client. They will recognize and avoid the disempowering pitfalls of each position, and approach each role with more effective behavior;
  • Learn the nuances of providing leadership that addresses issues systemically rather than personally.
