An International Training in Systemic Coaching
and Business Constellations

Bucharest, Romania. 2018/19

Bring your professional practice as a coach or manager to the next level

A three-part experiential learning journey over seven days:

Fundamentals Part I (a)19 and 20 October 2018
Fundamentals Part I (b): 18 and 19 January 2019
Fundamentals Part II: 13, 14 and 15 March 2019



This comprehensive experiential program offers coaches, facilitators, HR leaders and trainers the opportunity to participate in a unique learning journey, built on the application of systemic principles and practices as applied in individual, team and group coaching, consulting and leadership. The first cycle was held in Bucharest between September 2017 and May 2018 and was attended by new and experienced coaches, leaders, HR managers and entrepreneurs from across Romania.


This second cycle, over seven days from October 2018 to March 2019, offers the same opportunity, but with several adjustments and improvements. These workshop-based trainings are for those who would like to understand and work at the source of challenging dynamics, repeating patterns and other dynamics that limit human relationship systems. Using the very practical yet often profound and soulful methodology of coaching and business constellations to nourish the system and the individuals and teams within it. Whether you are already a very experienced coach, facilitator or HR, L&OD professional, or just getting established, you will be welcome.


With a systems perspective and this methodology it becomes much clearer where the complex dynamics that emerge in leadership, organisational and business systems emerge from. Systemic constellations, systemic consulting and systemic coaching have a vital role to play in clarifying, illuminating and resolving these invisible dynamics. They allow a different, broader landscape to be seen and worked with. They enlarge the awareness of the systemic context and allow resources and resolutions to be found and included.

“Odata cu participarea la programul de constelatii sistemice am descoperit o lume noua si fascinanta. Am descoperit modul in care un sistem are capacitatea de a se dezvalui si de a arata adevarul. Am fost sincer surprinsa de propriile constelatii si am simtit vindecarea atunci cand am participat la constelatiile colegilor mei. Iar experienta primei constelatii pe care am facilitat-o este de neuitat.”

Monica Georgescu Senior Learning Specialist

The Learning Journey

Fundamentals Training Part I (a)
October 19 and 20, 2018

This training is designed to embed the systemic coaching and constellations methodology as applied in coaching individuals, groups, teams and organisations. It will appeal to those who would like to better understand the organising forces that sustain and limit relationship systems at work and who like to integrate a practical methodology for respectfully resolving limiting dynamics.

Participants will be guided to explore the organising principles of relationship systems and the application of systemic constellations in individual, team and group coaching. Highlights of this first part of the training include:

  • A thorough introduction to the stance, principles and practices
  • The practical application of systemic constellations in one-to-one coaching
  • An introduction to working with teams using systemic mindset and methodology
  • An understanding of your own systemic resources and loyalties

Fundamentals Training Part I (b)
January 18 and 19, 2019

Part I (b) is designed to support participants to deepen their systemic stance, the ability to resource themselves as systemic facilitators and to apply this profound and powerful work in group and one to one coaching settings.

This level of the training includes further teaching, small group, pairs and individual exercises and practice. Highlights include:

  • Acknowledging what is – a living map for learning integration
  • Full group organisational constellation
  • Facilitating your first small group constellation – a step by step approach
  • Review of stance, principles and practices
  • Experience a collaborative organisational constellation
  • Working with floor markers in 1 on 1 and group settings
  • Resourcing from your family of origin – an exercise
  • Resourcing from your professional experiences – individual and small group work

Fundamentals Training Part II
March 13, 14 and 15, 2019

Fundamentals Part II is meant to help participants broaden their understanding of key concepts, deepen their systemic stance and ability to practice the methodologies and techniques with individuals, teams, groups and organisations in coaching contexts.

This level of the training journey includes further exercises designed to deepen understanding and practice of:

  • The use of systemic questioning in coaching and organisational change and the impact of conscience and hidden loyalties.
  • The use of systemic language that names ‘what is’, as well as the use of systemic sentences that create lasting embodied change in leadership and professional development coaching.
  • Group constellations, in small and larger groups. By facilitating constellations in this way, you will be able to deeply understand and integrate the stance, principles and practices.
  • Structural constellations, including the Tetralemma, used for complex decision making and the resolution of dilemmas.
