Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 06, 2013

Saybrook University is teaming up with Bainbridge Graduate Institute to hold a presentation and discussion on March 13, from 7 to 8:30 pm on “Tackling Wicked Problems – How can we Build and Support Cross-Sector Collaborative Systems?”

Much of the work in building a sustainable world is cross-sector work requiring collective leadership and collaborative action. Tapping the wisdom in the room, the workshop will identify a few wicked problems related to sustainability, discuss who needs to be engaged in addressing them, and the challenges and opportunities for that engagement. Using examples of emerging inter-organizational networks, the workshop will explore the role of managers and consultants in supporting collaborative engagement and collective leadership for creative, systemic change.

The program will be presented by Nancy Southern, EdD, Co-Chair, Saybrook University School of Organizational Leadership and Transformation, Libba Pinchot, Co-Founder, Bainbridge Graduate Institute and PhD candidate at Saybrook and Bill Koenig, VP Business Development, Bainbridge Graduate Institute and ED of Organizational Systems Renewal, NW.

Saybrook University will also be holding information sessions for new and prospective students interested in pursuing a degree or certificate program in its School of Organizational Leadership and Transformation immediately following the workshop, as well as on Thursday, March 14 at its Kirkland campus.

Saybrook’s School of Organizational Leadership and Transformation prepares students to understand the systemic challenges and transformative opportunities that surround us, to work collaboratively with others in designing and implementing social systems change within and across sectors, and to create learning communities that continue to evolve their capacity for leadership and change.
