Complexity for Coaches:
From Theory to Practice

An introductory group coaching program to enhance your systemic capability in your coaching practice. 

Program Overview

  • 6 x 3-hour fortnightly conversations, live and online
  • One individual coaching/mentoring session (1.5 hours) 
  • Materials supplied 

Living systems can be thought of as subsystems within larger systems. This means that the principles that apply to one subsystem will apply to larger parts of the system too. So, all of our conversations will be underpinned by principles that apply to individuals in executive coaching, team coaching and the practice I have developed of ‘systemic organisational coaching’. 

Your embodiment of systemic practice will develop over time as you apply the lens of complexity as a way of perceiving the world – seeing systems. During each of our conversations we will be practicing this capability. Over our six fortnightly conversations, we will cover the following topics:

  1. Understanding complexity and emergence 
  2. Leadership in complexity
  3. Organisational cultural evolution as a complex challenge
  4. Tools and frameworks that help analyse the system
  5. Designing a complexity informed intervention for your client
  6. Navigating complexity and monitoring progress in ambiguous circumstances

Josie must be a type of Ophthalmologist

Josie gave me a pair of complexity glasses
At first everything was blurry
They must have been multifocal
Eventually I could see more clearly in both short and long distances
What was great is that I could share them with others
Before long they too seemed to benefit from better vision.
Weirdly tough they did not come with a prescription
By golly, I did not realise there were so many of them lurking
A really big thank you for sharing Josie.

Robert, coach with 20 years experience.
