    Your work system can be hyper-efficient or total exhausting and depleting. We’d prefer the positive productive workplace systems. Systems overlaying systems overlaying more systems; systems are inescapable. Even cars are systems living on top of transportation systems. At AAI we use foundations in systems thinking approaches and advance systems thinking to help you shed light on systems that slow down and confound your work world. It is only by knowing your system’s inefficiencies and how to express them (causal loop diagrams) that you’ll be able to re-map the way work works. AAI will assist in transforming your organizational systems into agile systems. Whether you want to study the way your organization manufactures, communicates, collaborates or expands product lines, AAI has the systems’ session for you.

    Central to our learning community is the concept of self-identity. “Who we are” at work has become increasingly researched by scholars and consultants. By knowing “self” truly and relating it to our own ever evolving personal narratives, we tend to approach work as a story we co-author with colleagues within our work environments. After all, as human beings we tend to want to be connected to something far greater than just ourselves. When our personal stories gain a bit of boost and oneness is achieved, we work with more productivity and passion. Self-story along with creating storytelling cultures at work are primary themes of our courses, thinking and teaching.

    In order to thrive in the 21st century, Howard Gardner suggests that we need to be able to synthesize or connect readily (Gardner, 2007). Both the person seeing the connections and the one hearing about them need to understand what is going on in an organization today. AAI agrees with Gardner’s strong focus on the synthesizing mind. Here’s our take on its application. Today’s leaders and organizational members need to make connections to previous separate sections of the enterprise.
