|The process I use is called Systems Constellation. It first evolved as a form of family therapy in Germany in the 1980’s. The term constellation in this context refers to a group or system of objects in relationship to each other, the way stars in relationship to each other form constellations in the night sky. It was originally used to look at or map the relationship of different family members to each other and to the family system as a whole. The developers found that the process quickly exposed and resolved hidden dynamics that had been working against them in their lives, ending repeated unwanted patterns.
Since then this process has been applied to many different kinds of systems, to map, or make visual the relationships between the different parts, and the different parts to the whole system. In Europe it is used in a business context by Mercedes Benz, BMW and at the IBM Academy for Leadership and Management. In Canada it has only been introduced in the last few years.
What has drawn me to it is the way it is able to make visible complex hidden dynamics and then show what is required for the goal of the client to be realized or the shift needed for the client to reach their goal. It is a brilliant tool for looking at the dynamics in many situations including business, personal issues, relationships and community issues.
It is the best tool I have ever come across for supporting the function and growth of a business.
The more good information you have in business, the more you are able to make strong decisions. The Systems Constellation process provides an outstanding quality of information!
