What is Systemic Management Coaching?

Businesses are human relationship systems - empowered and limited by systemic rules, many of which are neither obvious nor intuitive. But systems theory and systemic rules can be confusing - for example, in many human systems it is against the rules to challenge the rules or even to know the rules!

Like consulting, our business coaching is outcome oriented, dealing in action plans, feedback, inspiration and consequences. Like consulting, we provide structure, support and feedback as we help you remove blocks, attain goals and realize visions. We provide process expertise, rather than content knowledge. We help people in organizations identify, create, locate and acquire missing knowledge and skills. We coach leaders to manage human relationships.

Systems Theory . Chaos Theory

A human system finds knowledge and produces skills for members of that system. Members can also use skills developed or acquired by the system during an earlier time. However, members of a system may be unable to use or even consider using skills developed by other human systems.

Members of a trade union may not understand nor appreciate the more complex skills used by management. Relationship management is a necessity.

How does our Systemic Coaching work?

We begin with where the business is now and what the leader, CEO and founder want. We discuss the relationship structure and relationship history. Then we discuss your costs and benefits. We use online meetings to support your chosen goals.

Subsequent steps focus on what works (not what's wrong) and on practical future solutions (not past problems). You probably want positive, pragmatic change strategies without undesirable side-effects.

We need not be in the same business, the same community or even the same country as you. A coach from outside the systems in which you live and work can provide better objectivity and perspective - and outside the box strategies.

Our systemic coaching helps you clarify situations, strategies and goals. We can help you evaluate resources and find steps to achieve your goals. You develop your control and responsibility. You know your environment, the participants and the rules. We can help you articulate and challenge rules, while you gain clarity, make decisions and follow through.

How Can You Benefit?

  • improved communication and leadership skills
  • ways to evaluate reality, rules, opportunities and goals
  • ways to evaluate family, friends, colleagues and managers
  • space to identify and and dissolve blocks to happiness or success
  • accountability, expectations, deadlines, reality tests and feedback


Our Coaching Models

A model is only as useful as the accuracy of its predictions. Our systemic business coaching begins with needs assessment and outcome specification. Well-formed outcomes and clear goals help you  plan their fulfillment, find resources and motivate you to realize them.

Our belief audit can help you examine your blocks or challenges. Some of your beliefs will change spontaneously as you align with your goals and values. Our systemic coaching models generate powerful choices include relationship matrices, timelines, organizational development, reframing, perceptual positions, relationship hierarchies and logical levels of abstraction.

Coaching & Training

Intensive programs are available if you want to learn professional systemic coaching. These programs provide practical coaching skills and multi-level coaching tools to help you gain clarity and control. Systemic coaching skills are a needed community resource.
