ORGANIZATIONAL AND RELATIONSHIPS SYSTEMIC INTELLIGENCE
Organizational and Relational Systemic Configurations is a methodology that can give you in-depth insight and help you to establish the source of a problem in a short time by understanding blind spots and hidden perspectives that may be keeping you stuck. It's an experiential method through which an interactive version of your current blockages are observed, reconciled and with some courage, embraced and released. We are a part of many systems; our business organization, relationships and family being ones that bring as much potential conflict as strength and healing.
Systemic work looks at the undercurrent, which is often overlooked. It is a valuable way to gain access to vital information and solve hidden entanglements. Understanding one's self and other’s emotional experience is a stepping stone to identifying and collaborating with groups, communities and other social systems.
This work can take place individually or in a group setting, and has a profound impact on the primary consultant, on the representatives and observers in the group. Countless times we've seen how topics and histories match and mirror within participants, creating a ripple of positive impact.
Organizational configurations, created by Bert Hellinger, are a systemic way of looking at businesses that help us create companies that work in a natural and balanced way. This dynamic practice is based on the Systemic Theory and Family Therapy, phenomenological and archetypal work.
Changes at any level and to any end in an organization can meet with defensiveness because some or all members of the organization might find it threatening. This defensiveness freezes the actors and the organization to the point that no further learning is possible and successful change is in danger. Organizational constellations have been shown to be an effective tool to overcome these defensive routines, while at the same time representing a deutero-learning process using higher-order systemic thinking, which allows managers to be both participants and observers of a system.
