Behavior Over Time (part 3) – Whiteboard Wednesday Season 10: Episode 3


This is part-3 in a 5-part series on Systems Thinking.

Today, John Messer shows how the interaction between Jethro and Moses (Exodus 18:13-27) points to a useful tool to understand behavior over time, leading to changes that address the core problem rather than its symptoms.

This series comes courtesy of John Messer, who recently completed a doctorate degree in Systems Theory with a specific emphasis on application to churches.

John also recently completed a book titled Burnout or Breakout: Systems Thinking for Stifled Leaders and Stuck Churches, which will be published and released soon.
