The term ‘systemic coaching’ is now widely used, usually to articulate the value for the coach of looking beyond the immediacy of the one-to-one coaching relationship. It is also being used to describe some specific, and quite different, ways of thinking about systems. If coaches are to make sense of this evolving narrative, then the industry as a whole must further familiarize itself with the relevant thinking from the worlds of systems thinking. In this webinar we’ll review five different ways of thinking about systems and consider how each philosophy might manifest differently in the work of a coach.
