Everyone is part of multiple systems. For example, everyone has his or her own family system. That is the system you originate from. In addition, your football club, the choir you sing in and your working environment also all form systems. Systems guide us. There are unwritten rules within systems that guide both the system itself and those who are part of that system. That means that, unknown to you, they affect your performance and well-being, both in a positive and a negative way. If you are in the right place in the system, you will experience a natural flow of power and energy.
If you do not find yourself in the right place, then the system can, for example, cause you to experience unhelpful patterns. You may also run into of the same problems again and again, or you continually try to please others and/or undermine your own success. You may experience stress or other symptoms and you do not understand why. Maybe you want to take steps in your development, but don’t feel up to the task. The same applies to teams. There may be friction on an ongoing basis, so that a team does not achieve good results, or perhaps there is no clear leader, etc.
Systemic coaching can provide insight into those systemic influences. Other than that, it can help you to regain the right place for you.
Remarkably, once there is better understanding and good coaching is in place, those involved often feel more liberated, more energetic, much stronger and it makes it easier to move on and take the next steps. The same applies to teams as well. A team can achieve more of a flow state, be more energetic and achieve results more easily. The team can work together better and in a more fun and stress-free way, which ultimately benefits the health and well-being of those involved.
