Read each of their books. Learn to use systems archetypes to solve your problems at work, in your business, in your relationship, and social connections. A system is a set of interrelated elements that make a unified whole. This 2015 brief by Kimberly Bowman and colleagues introduces the concept of ‘systems thinking’ in the context of international development. In my opinion systems thinking is one of the most powerful tools we have to understand and change the world around us. A good start with many helpful references. .glow-widget-top{min-height:40px;background-color:#f8f8f8;margin:-12px -14px 12px;overflow:hidden;z-index:100}.glow-icon{background:url(data:image/png;base64,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) no-repeat;background-size:14px 19px;-webkit-background-size:14px 19px;width:14px;height:19px;margin:10px 10px 10px 14px}.glow-row-1{margin-top:1px}.glow-row-2{margin-top:-4px}.glow-ingress-link-color{color:#333}.glow-city-label{overflow-x:hidden;text-overflow:ellipsis;max-width:68%}.glow-icon-bottom{margin:3px 10px 0 0}#contextualIngressPt{cursor:pointer;display:flex}#contextualIngressPt #contextualIngressPtLabel.cip-a-size-small{font-size:12px!important;line-height:1.5!important}#contextualIngressPt #contextualIngressPtLabel.cip-a-size-mini{font-size:12px!important;line-height:1.5!important}#contextualIngressPtPin{min-width:16px;height:14px;float:left;background-image:url(https://m.media-amazon.com/images/G/01/AUIClients/DeliveryStaticPackard-pin_desktop_1x-c944b6819f9e5642fdfd4ff3d1109d60d66d8f87._V2_.png);background-repeat:no-repeat;background-size:auto;background-position:center;margin-right:5px;margin-top:2px}@media only screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio:2),only screen and (min-resolution:192dpi),only screen and (min-resolution:2dppx){#contextualIngressPtPin{background-image:url(https://m.media-amazon.com/images/G/01/AUIClients/DeliveryStaticPackard-pin_desktop_2x-180f59a1b475c745a0ed67623d406c57aa5d0392._V2_.png);background-size:contain}#contextualIngressPtPinMobile{background-image:url(https://m.media-amazon.com/images/G/01/AUIClients/DeliveryStaticPackard-pin_mobile_2x-5cdcc5e9083b2302421c35dc6914580cc3074087._V2_.png);background-size:contain}}#contextualIngressPtMobileApp{display:table}#contextualIngressPtPinMobile{min-width:16px;height:20px;float:left;background-image:url(https://m.media-amazon.com/images/G/01/AUIClients/DeliveryStaticPackard-pin_mobile_1x-411d9ad241152b8c2362b94bce39debd899ad411._V2_.png);background-repeat:no-repeat;background-size:auto;background-position:center;margin-bottom:1px;margin-right:6px}#contextualIngressPtMobileApp #contextualIngressPtPinMobile{width:16px;height:20px;float:left;background-image:url(https://m.media-amazon.com/images/G/01/AUIClients/DeliveryStaticPackard-pin_mobile_1x-411d9ad241152b8c2362b94bce39debd899ad411._V2_.png);background-repeat:no-repeat;background-size:auto;background-position:center;margin-bottom:1px;margin-right:6px;display:table-cell}#contextualIngressPtMobileApp #contextualIngressPtLabel{display:table-cell;vertical-align:middle} }); (window.AmazonUIPageJS ?
