Constellation Workshop with Gunthard Weber
Constellations are a
powerful, astounding and
far-reaching method for exploring burning issues and entrenched
patterns in organisations and communities. Based on the systemic work
of Bert Hellinger, the constellating process draws on the embedded
intelligence of a situation to reveal hidden dynamics in key areas such
as leadership, conflict resolution, relationships between stakeholders
or between founders and their successors, culture change, management of
innovation, organisational restructuring amongst many others.
Gunthard Weber is internationally recognised in this field, with huge
experience worldwide with all types of organisation as a consultant and
facilitator, both working directly with organisations and training and
supervising consultants in organisational development.
In addition, he
has done research in constellation work, published many articles and
led trainings in systemic therapy. He is also Director of the Wiesloch
Institute for Systemic Solutions and founder of the Carl-Auer
publishing company. He is in much demand throughout the world and we
are delighted to bring you this opportunity to work with him in the UK.
Organisational Constellations set up?
After an issue holder describes an organisational dilemma including
what needs to be different, the facilitator identifies the key elements
of that dilemma. The issue holder then chooses other workshop
participants to represent those elements: colleagues, customers,
suppliers, owners, workers, governments, The Stock Exchange, other
stakeholders, nations or ethnic groups, even more conceptual elements
like resources, limitations, goals or the future. These elements are
then intuitively placed in relation to each other. What is surprising
is that the representatives are able to feel deeply and report
accurately the experience of those they are representing. This reveals
hidden dynamics that are worked with creatively to explore new and deep
perspectives that go below conventional awareness to reveal profound
“A constellation shifts people's perception of where problems
come from and suggests ways to move forward differently that strengthen
and build. The new perspectives allow issue-holders fresh insights, a
renewed sense of possibility and a strong focus on action. In addition,
a synchronous shift sometimes takes place in the real organisation or
community that has been represented. “ (Judith Hemming)
