Organisational Systemic Constellations workshop

Organisational Systemic Constellations workshop

Course description

Εxplore representations as a dynamic method of communication in professional and personal relationships. It brings insight and solutions to a variety of challenges. Issues related to your past, present and future histories are processed for the purpose of achieving understanding and vitality. Any domain can be explored like community, team, family and peer relations regarding topics of health, workplaces, collaborations etc., in depth. Participants may investigate their own system and be active observers for others and many other combinations.

In brief, constellating is an approach to whole systems working which looks at the issues and dynamics of an organisation system such as a family or community) using people as live representatives to provide feedback on the system. It bears some similarities to Moreno’s psychodrama, except that crucially it looks at the consequences from the past, and works with hidden loyalties from the past as well as revealing the dynamics in the present. It can also work with the future in the present and point to resolving energies as well as bringing insights about the deep underlying, difficult issues that are holding a team or organization back. Constellations work from an epistemological basis that we are all part of an interconnected universe and thus can tap intuitively into an ‘informing’ or ‘knowing’ field using a level of knowledge beyond our rational or imaginative processes.

Methodology

The course builds on proven method of systemic representations. Constellations are action-orientated approaches in that they point to new actions and behaviours that will support change. A constellation starts with an interview identifying the really burning issues that occupy the issue holder in a system. The (facilitator) constellator most importantly listens to the issue without judgement, The interviewer is thinking relationally, of hidden patterns and of consequences over time and does not want the detail of the familiar organisational story.

A constellation is set up by the issue holder using representatives, often people who know very little about the organisation. It reveals the underlying dynamics that shape a system stripped of the details and points of view that lead to opinions and judgements. It reveals the hidden dynamics or the relationships between the things that make up the system. Then the energy is released for new possibilities and new internal images of that system.

Benefits

We sense where disconnections and exclusions have occurred in the history and understand how certain relationships developed or ended. People seeking to bring balance and stability to our systems, even though unaware and not always conscious about it.

With participation in a constellation we may gain insights as to why things may be malfunctioning in our behavior or attitude and need to be changed. It’s an effective way to unfold some hidden dynamics which allow us to release past entanglements and attempt to pursue a better and balanced life. Ηosting conversations in the presence of intuition.

Τhe constellation generates powerful insights, where participants  can work through their deep issues in a confidential setting. They becοme  aware of the importance of the three stages (before, during & after) of a constellation that could optimise the constellation in a transformational process.
