Habits of a Systems Thinker

The Habits of a Systems Thinker help learners understand how systems work and how actions taken can impact results seen over time. They encompass a spectrum of strategies that foster problem-solving and encourage questioning. The Thinking Tools Studio contains a course for each of the Habits.

Below you will find a brief explanation of each Habit. We encourage you to refer to this page often — it’s a helpful resource when completing lessons, exercises and more.
