Systemic Executive Coaching
“Since my coaching sessions, I have found I have confidence in my own ability to deal
with sensitive leadership situations. Having space to think, explore and see the bigger picture was invaluable.”
Lisa Francis, Operations Manager – Oxford University
What is systemic coaching?
“Problems and solutions that arise in organisations are almost always the product of interactions of parts, never the action of a single part.” - Russ Ackoff
Systemic coaching is training that gives priority to the system. It recognises that for an individual to truly flourish, the system supporting them must be healthy. As a result, systemic coaching enables the coach and coachee to be freed from all too familiar ruts, and to illuminate hidden resources and restore the coherence and flow of the whole system.
What are the benefits?
- A clear and “whole organisation” understanding of the issues you are facing.
- An understanding of your unique place within the organisation.
- Blocks and entanglements within all levels of the organisation are revealed, and practical ways are found to move forward.
- Systemic coaching is solution-focused. Creative ways are found to resolve problems that previously seemed stuck.
“As a coach, Milly was truly amazing. The training was in-depth, drawing out both my strengths and developing those areas of concern. Helping me to see the bigger picture and resolving problems that seemed stuck, she has helped my professional confidence immensely. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.”
Linda Edward, Service Manager – NHS
