    PCHRA is offering a new service to advance the profession and HR professionals by teaching systems thinking for HR startegy, communications, openness and safety. 

    "Systems Thinking with DSRP, Part II: Systems"

    ABOUT THE EVENT: We introduce a new service called “Advancing the Profession and Serving the HR Professional Learning Series”, a bi-monthly online event raising awareness of systems thinking. 

    This is a 12-part training exploring the systems thinking theory and methodology of DSRP facilitated by Lori Fisher, PMP PCHRA social media chair. DSRP, which stands for Distinctions, Systems, Relationships, and Perspectives, is “thinking about thinking” and helps users develop empathy and active listening skills in addition to thinking skills.

    For this event, participants can learn and earn 1 SHRM PDC.

    ABOUT THE PRESENTATION: In this presentation, Lori will share the systems thinking methodology of DSRP, a natural and practical way to improve your thinking, interactions, and learning. In this second of four sessions Lori will build on Dr. Derek Cabrera’s Distinctions Rule by considering the Systems Rule, which helps us practically understand the composition of an idea or thing, while also considering its context.

    This session will include illustrative explanations, and human resources and management exercises to enhance learning and work applicability. Since DSRP is “thinking about thinking”, you should be excited to know this systems thinking approach also yields empathy and active listening skills. Be aware people rarely challenge pre-existing part-wholes and this is the root of error propagation and inaccurate assumptions.  They also do not scale up/down or zoom in/out of an idea or thing, which can yield insight and options through structural predictions.

    Learn easy ways to improve this skill and immediately increase the effectiveness of your interactions and review of important matters.  Questions and dialogue are welcome and encouraged!
