Systemic Management Training

Online Coaching, Counseling & Mentorship

Systemic Solutions solves planning, relationship and success problems. Expertise in systemic solutions requires a broad spectrum of skills, and systemic consultants receive intensive training. This program enables graduates to use a unique and effective system that models and redefines strategic planning and relationship management.

Our training in systemic solutions are most often presented in North America and Europe. Many of our courses are in-house, and some are public. Most training is for solution-focused professional groups.

Systemic-Constructivist Management

In any system (including human beings, families and management teams):

  • A system has essential qualities that system elements cannot provide
  • The behavior of each element affects the behavior of the system
  • Any group of elements can affect the behavior of the system
  • The behavior and effects of each element are interdependent
  • An element loses qualities when separated from the system
  • Poorly connected or disconnected elements lose essential qualities

Managing systems requires a systemic approach. Systemic solutions are for management systems and systemic goals, from reducing costs to changing leadership. Systemic management is particularly important during times of organizational stress and change. In organizational systems:

  • Organizations possess the requisite resources for success and failure
  • Organizational structures can be represented for strategic planning
  • Organizational relationship and cultural changes can be predicted
  • Organizational values, relationships, strategies and goals are interlinked
  • Organizational members should know each other's roles and responsibilities
  • Organizational decisions should be made simultaneously

Organizations can be managed systemically and systematically for sustainable development. The first step of systemic management is diagnostic - ascertaining the nature of systemic connections, and the consequences of proposed actions or lack of action. Systemic solutions focus on what works (not what's wrong) and on future performance (not past problems) to provide positive, holistic benefits.

Systemic coaches and consultants receive the following experiential training, individual systemic coaching and specialty courses. Each course segment is 40 hours (48 hours if translation required) with a total of 480 hours. The basic program includes:

Specialty Courses

Training for unusual applications and uncommon situations

Public and in-house systemic trainings are available. A typical group size is 12. Most training programs are in English. Translators are available, or organizations may provide their own.

There are no formal prerequisites for attending systemic training, although most participants are professionals. The informal prerequisites are friendliness and emotional stability.

Soulwork consultants may act as advisors, coaches or temporary project managers. We can also provide professional guidance and coaching in partnership and parenthood issues, and help resolve individual, domestic and organizational crises. Some of us are specialists in:

  • stress (long-term stress management)
  • couple coaching (pre-marital, marriage and divorce)
  • family coaching (family and parenting issues)
  • strategic planning (systemic organizational and management coaching)
  • relationship and management
  • sales and marketing
  • technology and information technology (IT)
  • organizational development
  • human resource management (HR)
  • business expansion, purchases and mergers
  • health issues and disease symptoms (physical, mental and relationship)
  • other professions (medicine, psychiatry, psychotherapy, science, etc)

Systemic training reflects in-depth perceptions of human behavior with skills for strategic planning, relationship management, expert modeling, accelerated learning and rapid behavioral change. Systemic skills are transferable to most professions, and are also applicable for resolving individual, partnership and parenthood challenges.
