Who are the Systemic Organisational Practice Seminars 2023 for?
As a systemic practitioner - leader, consultant and/or clinician - you have an interest and agency to contribute to the development of the organisation you are working in and with. The Systemic Organisatonal Practice Seminars will facilitate your effective positioning and practising in relation to your organisational task, role, team and the wider organisation. Seminars will contribute to your development as systemic leader and consultant and contribute to organisational learning and development. The seminars also facilitate connectedness and exchange in the community of systemic organisational practitioners.
As a participant you will typically hold a diploma or master’s degree in systemic practice and / or have developed an interest in advanced systemic practice in organisational contexts and communities of practising.
Process and content
Each Systemic Organisatonal Practice Seminar will
- facilitate practitioner engagement with systemic theory
- offer possibilities for consultation and supervision in relation to current organisational dilemmas and opportunities
- invite an exchange of experiences and ideas about good practice
- Support agency and resourcefulness in participants.
The seminars are offered as an all-in group booking intended to facilitate the formation of a stable group to continue for a period of a year, with the possibility of continuing as a group thereafter.
Online seminars will be conducted using a professional Zoom account allowing to facilitate work in breakout rooms or facilitated sub-groups.
The booking includes the presentation materials and copies of papers provided in electronic format.
Themes and topics
Every seminar we will be offering a topic that relates to our 2023 theme of 'enriching leadership'. Seminar topics facilitate a focus for enaging with systemic practical theories, for inputs and for participant contributions. Seminar topics may evolve and develop in response to participants' feedback and preferences.
Seminar 1 - Breaking patterns and creating the new
How can we move things on in an aesthetic way? This workshop connects us with our systemic sensibilities, our sense making and strategic creativity to influence patterns of meaning making and acting on various levels.
Seminar 2 - Healing the post-traumatic organisation
How to move forward in the aftermath of change inflicted on us rather than chosen? What are the perhaps rich learnings that can be taken forward. What language is required for the past, the present and the future?
Seminar 3 - Leadership from within the crisis
How can we lead the organisation when crises are evident at political, societal, economical and personal levels? This workshop connects us with our resources and limitations in managing uncertainty and complexity in systems.
Seminar 4 - Deconstructing our leadership – an exercise in reflexivity
What is it that we say, tell ourselves and actually do in day to day leadership? What systemic ideas are influencing us in our strategizing, decision making and in our relating – and how can we improve our coherence as systemic leaders?
The Systemic Organisatonal Practice Seminars 2023 will comprise four two-day workshops, each from 9:30 – 16:30. In case the seminar group size exceeded 12 participants the timing would be 9:00 - 16:30. Seminar dates are
