Join Professor Junko Edahiro, one of most prominent sustainability thinkers and advocates in Japan, at this free webinar to learn the systems thinking approach to dealing with the VUCA world. Systems thinking gives you some practical tools for broadening your perspective and seeing problems in different and new ways that help you make informed choices and find solutions for problems once thought unsolvable. In other words, it helps you to confront the complexity and see “the whole iceberg” instead of just “the tip”.
This is an invaluable skill for leaders today, because they need to understand the pattern and underlying mechanisms to take effective actions to deal with turmoils in business environment. For example, why are there different COVID-19 patterns in different countries? What is the mechanism of the US-China trade war? Do you understand the underlying structure of your own business-related problems? Learn with concrete examples how systems thinking helps deepen the understanding of a situation and predict its development.
Professor Junko Edahiro has translated books of Lester Brown, Al Gore, Dennis Meadows, Donella Meadows, David Suzuki and many others into Japanese, and also writes by herself dozens of books on climate change, energy, happiness, systems thinking, and many other sustainability topics. She promotes and facilitates environmental communication and dialogue among governments, corporations and citizens.
In addition, she was an advisor to Japan’s Prime Minister at the “Climate Change Roundtable,” preparing for the Toya Lake Summit in 2008. She has served many other government committees and corporate boards related to climate change, biodiversity, and energy issues.
