In this workshop, Kim will explore how valuable it is for coaches to understand the systems in which our clients are operating – whether they are individual, group or team clients. A system can be: a family, a work team, an organisation, other people in your life, aspects of yourself, people from your past or from your present. A constellation is a term which describes a system as a set of elements in relation to one another… like the constellations we see when we look up at the sky at night.
The workshop will include a mix of theory and practice and will cover the following areas and include two practice coaching sessions for participants:
- Our early experiences of groups or systems and their impact on us
- Lessons from family therapy and group dynamics theory
- Understanding the role of a system in supporting or inhibiting change
- Making maps or constellations of systems (drawing, using objects, playdough or human sculpting)
- Victim, Rescuer, Hero retrospective review of constellation
