Prompt: In this activity, you will reflect upon your own mental models as they relate to systems thinking. Return again to your problem catalog and choose a problem that is personal to you or a problem you are involved in.
Write a paper identifying and discussing the mental models that you have that may be limiting your ability to improve the situation.
The following are some things to consider:
What are your assumptions, preconceived notions, and perceptions about the problem?
Are you emotionally able to view evidence that challenges your assumptions?
Are you willing to abandon your favored solution when the system behavior contradicts it?
To what extent have you considered the concepts brought up in the reading for this module? For example, are you listening to the wisdom of the system? Considering the good of the whole? Celebrating complexity? Expanding boundaries? Are you humble and open to learning more about the problem?
You are not required to support your reflections by outside research; however, if you do, include citations in APA style.
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
● Briefly summarize your problem and the system involved.
● Identify your own assumptions and preconceived notions as they apply to the problem and system.
● Analyze your own mental flexibility as it applies to the problem. Are you willing to abandon your favored solution if the wisdom of the system suggests you need to? Are you humble in regard to this problem? Are you willing to expand boundaries in considering the system? Are you considering the good of the whole? Include examples to illustrate your points.
Guidelines for Submission: Your paper should be submitted as a 1-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, oneinch margins. Any included citations should be in APA style.
