The Diploma in Systemic Leadership and Consulting Practice 

This one-year course is for professionals, who aspire to a step-change in their practice, creating opportunities for self and others, facilitating wisdom and development in organisations, groups and communities.

The training comprises four modules and is organised into eight workshop blocks, two days each, a total of 16 days face-to-face training, self managed learning and experiential assignments.  These modules will invite understanding and skills of systemic leadership and consulting practice, systemic coaching, working with complexity, and organisational development.

The Diploma in Systemic Leadership and Consulting Practice foregrounds how people in organisations contribute, through their interaction, consciously and unconsciously, to the organisational system. The course includes approaches, methods and techniques to attend to communication and coordination patterns and to facilitate insight, agency and choice for the effective and ethical leader and consultant. 

Skills and methods taught on this course are of relevance to the development of relationships between individuals, teams or departments; for organisational learning; the development of strategies, plans and processes; the informing of roles and tasks; the production of goods and services, and so forth. This systemic frame opens up novel and generative ways of working as a systemic leader, consultant and coach.

Systemic approaches to work with organisations originate from the field of Systemic family therapy, Group Analysis and from dialogic approaches to organisation development, stimulating innovative, effective and sustainable responses to organisational dilemmas and development tasks.
