Topic: An Introduction to Organizational Constellation
Organizational Constellations (OC) is a new OD tool that is having a profound impact on executive decision making in Western Europe. The OC approach is based on the phenomenological work of Bert Hellinger with family systems. Although OC is fairly well known in Europe it is just beginning to be introduced in North America. In this session we will explore organizational development and the issue of inspiring change.
Key questions to consider include:
-What are the drivers related to change and the status quo?
-How do the various parts of the organizational system align around those drivers?
-Is reconciliation or harmonization between those different parts possible?
Bring your real life, change management challenges and dilemmas to this session. We will explore the above questions using the organizational constellation process. Hopefully we will come away with some deep insights and realizations that will help us and our clients take another step toward realizing the full potential of their organization and the people in them.
