Time & Location
About the event
You’ve heard the phrase, ‘No man is an island’? It expresses the idea that human beings need to be a part of a community in order to thrive. No matter what we do in our lives, we are always in relationships. Whether you are aware of it or not, you are a member of many systems - a family, a community, an organization, a business partnership, a team. We are enmeshed within a web of relationship which constantly influence us; touch one strand and the whole structure moves. Such is the complexity of the human relationship system.
Have you ever been told or reminded by another that your actions have an impact on him or her? The fact is, that one person’s actions causes another’s reactions. Our relationships matter. So then the question is, how do we effectively navigate these complex relationship systems to create positive impact.
The Organization and Relationships Systems Coaching (ORSC™)addresses these questions and introduces the principles and practice of a systems thinker; it’s the ability to see connections and inter-relationships across people, disciplines, functions, organizations, trends and cultures in ways that lead to deep dynamic insights, innovation and sustainable solutions.
The innovative ORSC™ Fundamentals course is a two-day (or 4 half days) foundational course that explores the ORSC methodology, a groundbreaking model for coaching relationships i.e. teams, families, couples, and organizations. Whether your area of practice is in personal coaching, family therapy or business/team coaching, the ORSC™ model will invigorate the way you work.
You will be introduced to a cutting-edge coaching model based dynamically on Systems Theory, Process Work, Family Systems Therapy, Alternative Dispute Resolution, Quantum Physics, Co-Active Coaching™.
At the core of ORSC™ is the evolution of the principles of Emotional Intelligence (relationship with oneself), and Social Intelligence (relationship with other) to Relationship Systems Intelligence (RSI™) where the focus is on the collective wisdom of the group, team or system.
The introduction to Relationship Systems Intelligence (RSI™) will help you learn to recognise the different moving parts and the various interdependent relationships within any relationship system. We believe relationship systems have a natural drive toward evolution and/or resolution.
For this reason, the Relationship Systems Coach has one primary job, which is to reveal the system to itself. By helping the system to see itself — its strengths, its obstacles, its potential in— the coach can create the ground conditions for the system to find its own answers.
You will receive participatory training in the use of a relationship systems approach to coaching in a variety of applications through a combination of scenarios and live material. You will have numerous opportunities to practice the 5 Key ORSC™ Tools in this module.
You will be introduced equipped and empowered; with the following ORSC™ concepts, language and tools as learning outcomes.
1. Coaching the Third Entity™
Each group, team or partnership is more than just a collection of individuals. Their combined experiences, intelligences and energy form a separate entity that is more than the sum of its parts. This unique identity is known as the Third Entity. Coaching the relationship or team dynamics rather than the individuals in the system provides you with increased objectivity enables deeper influence as you skilfully access the inherent wisdom and strengths of the team.
2. Designed Partnership Alliances
Designing Partnership Alliance sets the stage for a relationship system to create a mutually successful experience. Think of these as the working agreements collectively established among members of teams or relationship systems with your guidance to ensure a strong foundation. This builds co-responsibility for the outcomes and determines how relationship systems address their challenges together. It also focus on the critical yet often overlooked pillar in building successful teams - environment / culture.
3. Alignment Skills
What you perceive to be the relationship system’s opportunities for growth and what the system perceives to be its challenges aren’t always in sync. This causes resistances and leads to misunderstandings, disagreements and conflicts. You will learn how to how to establish boundaries and limitations for your engagements while focusing on the common interests of your clients. Imagine if you are the leader or the insurance agent that has to deal with resistance? Alignment is crucial in creating the ‘meeting of minds’ to address what needs to be accomplished.
4. Constellating the System
Humans in a relationship system gravitate to particular roles, guided by their own predispositions and the demands of a given situation. Through the use of The Informal Constellations, you will be trained on how to get a team’s /relationship system’s ‘snapshot’ and move it from there. Constellating systems reveals the roles and positions each team member holds, garnering deeper insights that can direct their future growth.
5. Crafting a Relationship Myth
There is an archetypal nature to relationships that shape our reality. You will learn how to craft a narrative with your clients that resonate deeply to realize their new reality as the relationship systems evolve.
