Systemic Leadership Coaching with Constellations: Introduction to the Essentials (London)

October 1 @ 9:30 am - October 3 @ 5:30 pm

Water drop on leaf

The purpose of this three-day course is to introduce you to the essential principles, method and skills of Systemic Leadership through Coaching and Constellations; it will help you begin to integrate this profound systemic lens – and some powerful tools – into your existing practice of coaching or catalysing others through change.

Systemic Leadership Coaching with Constellations has emerged over the last twenty years as a powerful, awareness-based “whole self/whole systems” method for seeing and transforming challenges in our personal and organisational lives. By creating maps of the whole system, constellations enable the invisible dynamics of even seemingly intractable situations to be revealed – and often resolved – quickly and effectively.

To help you integrate it into your existing practice, it focuses on resourcing you with simple, potent constellating tools that can help you diagnose issues, test solutions and discover new possibilities for generative action.



Benefits: Developing Your Capacity

This programme grounds you in the core perspective and methods of Systemic Coaching with Constellations, and their application to 1-1 executive and team coaching and wider systems.

Specifically, you will develop or enhance your capacity to:

  1. Understand the key principles, history and sources of this work, and the CLEAR(TM) method of Systemic Leadership Coaching & Constellations.
  2. Use CLEAR – and a constellating methodology – in both 1-1 coaching and team coaching contexts, as well as setting up simple Diagnostic Constellations of wider systems, so that you help yourself and your clients rapidly gain a systemic “overview” on the nature of their challenges.
  3. Map issues and systems in different ways (desktop-style or with floor markers and use of human representatives) so that you can work flexibly in different contexts.
  4. Draw from all ‘4 Ways of Knowing’ – intuitive, emotional, embodied and intellectual intelligence.
  5. Understand, both experientially and conceptually, the ‘Hidden Orders’ that shape systems, enabling organisational change and well-being.
  6. Find the most empowering ‘place’ in relation to the coachee (or team) and wider organisation, and understand what this approach requires of the facilitator in terms of ‘stance’, presence & capacity.
  7. Put all this together, so as to strengthen your capacity to coach and help others.

There will be many opportunities to explore your own personal and organisational systems, both through exercises and demonstrations. We will dive deep (but lightly), we will have fun and we will learn together!



Who is it for?

The programme is for:

  • executive coaches and change agents (external or internal)
  • leaders or managers in all sectors who are supporting others through transformation and change, and who wish to integrate a systemic perspective and methodology into their work
  • coaches who have completed related systemic programs, such as the ORSCTM training, who wish to deepen their constellating capacity and understanding of the thought framework behind this approach
  • facilitators and actors working in the fields of sustainability and regeneration.

You will find it especially valuable if you are feeling stuck or stressed by seemingly intractable, complex problems with particular clients or work systems, or you are keen to find a way of coaching and facilitating others which draws more on your whole self (especially your presence, embodiment and intuition) as well as the systems of which you are a part.

The course will also likely challenge and expand how you see yourself and your work as a coach, change agent, or leader, while increasing your awareness of how organisations and people can flourish at a deeper level.
