[Training] Getting Over Ourselves: How Our Own Systems for Aid and Impact Hold Back Success

The world’s greatest challenges—climate change, social conflict, species extinction, human trafficking, homelessness—are caused by what scientists call complex systems, where a large number of interacting components (social groups, emotions, technologies, beliefs, money, natural resources, etc.) make it very difficult to find lasting solutions. But even when people take that complexity seriously enough to identify promising solutions, those solutions often turn out to be nearly impossible to implement. Why? In this training, we present a new theory called the “dual-system problem” that not only explains the lack of progress but shows leaders, activsts, investors, and everyday people what they can do to break down the barriers to success against even the most complex problems. Half-day, one-day, and two-day trainings available.
