Organization Constellation CoP  

Topic: The Systemic Coaching for Leadership Development 

August 28 we will look at how to use the systemic approach as a tool to help our client’s “catch themselves being themselves.” Talking about an issue with a skillful coach can give a leader some insight. Seeing oneself embodied by others acting out an issue provides an even deeper and all-encompassing level of insight.  This deeper level of insight is necessary because the rational mind has defenses and rationales that shift the responsibility for change on to others or the environment. Traumas buried in the “frozen past” limit the capacity to perceive the choices and opportunities wrapped up in a personal challenge.

The book, Leadership and Self-Deception, by the Arbinger Insititute, discusses the nature of these defenses and the how they limit the effectiveness of leaders who lack the skill of self- observation. The subconscious holds the knowledge that can resolve self-imposed restrictions and dysfunctional coping mechanisms. Through the constellation process we can more fully observe and understand ourselves in a way that supports professional growth and personal empowerment.      

We will explore these and other questions about the process of leadership development and professional change through an experiential method known as organizational/systemic constellations. You are welcome to join us!  

Come be a part of a dynamic and transformative afternoon.
