What is Business and Organizational Constellation Work?
When we go off to work every day, we are often not aware that along with our laptop and cup of coffee, we are also taking our whole family along with us. Family dynamics in the workplace can cause all kinds of interesting things to happen. The boss is suddenly a lot like mommy or daddy, the coworkers morph into ornery siblings, and the moment we most want to stand strong and be heard, we scrabble off into the corner like a scared child.
Business and Organizational Constellation Work is a group process to help you decipher what might really be going on in your business or career. By using representatives to stand in for key players in your circle, we can make visible the hidden dynamics that may be operating right around you. The process is fast, effective, and can save you many years of grief. Too often businesses and organizations try to solve problems with adult tools never for a minute realizing that they must first solve the old family patterns floating around the office.
In order for the process to be effective, you create your "constellation" using representatives who are strangers and know nothing of what is happening in your work. This way we get clean pipes and better information. Besides family dynamics, other issues the constellation can give insight into are generational management issues, change of leadership issues, and whether you are in "the right place" within your organization (or even in your career choice).
