Welcome to the 18th Systems-Centered Annual Conference!

March 18–24, 2017 • Philadelphia

Uncertainty and Emergence: Staying Curious at the Edge of the Unknown

This year’s conference picks up the Systems-Centered Training (SCT) focus on natural human responses to uncertainty at the edge of the unknown, where curiosity provides an antidote to anxiety and creates a context for exploration and emergence.

The Weekend Institute and 5-day Conference offer a wide range of training groups, interactive workshops and a large group experience. Expect to:

  • Experience how the method of functional subgrouping changes how groups typically deal with differences
  • See how the world is different when we see systems rather than just people
  • Explore what happens when we go compliant and when we go defiant
  • Shift from focusing on personal reactions to authority to curiosity about how the context triggers these reactions and the information held in them

Our hope is that we can co-create an open and fun climate that allows us to discover new learnings for ourselves and for our work.
