Toronto Information Session & Learning Symposium

Toronto Marriott City Center
One Blue Jays WayM5V 1J4 Toronto , ON
At Royal Roads University, we know everyone has something to share and there’s huge value in open discussions. Join us in Toronto on Tuesday, March 6th for an information session and learning symposium. Our online and on-campus programs create an environment where everyone works together to achieve success. At RRU, you learn from everyone in your program - not just your instructors. Join us on March 6th to see our difference in action.
Following this general information session, we are pleased to bring you a learning opportunity from Dr. Cheryl Heykoop, Assistant Professor from the School of Leadership Studies discussing;
Igniting Change Through Systems Thinking
The world in which we live, work, and play is becoming increasing complex and multifaceted. Systems thinking offers a helpful orientation to navigate complex social systems and challenges. Systems thinking supports us to view situations and circumstances through a more holistic lens; specifically exploring the importance of connections, boundaries, and perspectives.
Join us for a short workshop session, where Dr. Heykoop explores the principles of systems thinking and how systems thinking can facilitate change in relationships, organizations, and life more generally.
Systems thinking is a common to thread in most of our RRU programs. It helps us to understand the role we play in relationships at home, work, and play; and it encourage us to consider other perspectives and possibilities. Systems thinking can help us to recognize the role we play in the status quo and what we can do to ignite change.
Dr. Heykoop will lead this interactive workshop session, from which you will walk away with a deeper understanding of systems thinking and how it can be applied to create change at home, at work, and in your life more generally.
