About Us

Our Mission is to spread a framework for thinking holistically and engaging in meaningful dialogue about complex problems – that language is Systems Thinking.

We apply systems thinking every day to understand new problems that arise in our daily lives. The framework has been essential in helping us explore questions from a unique perspective and engage in productive dialogue with others. We’ve experienced mental model shifts in ourselves and others, and created this site to share what we’ve learned and are continuing to learn with a wider audience. We hope our content doesn’t tell you what to believe, but inspires you to examine your mental models and see the world in a different way.
