This short seminar can also be booked individually.

The 9-day consultant training “Holistic-Integral Systemic Counselling” starts with a 2-day block on Thursday and Friday 23 and 24 March 2023 and will then be continued monthly with two days. The exact dates are below.

With the counselling training we want to enable participants to accompany organisations that want to develop their corporate culture, as well as corporate structures, mindsets and competences into a holistic organisation.

Prerequisites for the training: Work experience in organisations, coaching training, counselling training, counselling experience, leadership competences and qualifications, or similar – we discuss prerequisites individually.

 

Training modules

Day 1

“Corporate culture development increases success and saves the world” – What is behind this central idea?

Even if it is hard to believe in view of the current crises in the world, it is true: humanity is developing towards more awareness and is becoming increasingly conscious of its responsibility for life and survival. Numerous theories have provided evidence of human development. For example, C. Graves, in his model now called Spiral Dynamics, shows the individual stages of development. Knowledge of these enables us to understand the growing complexity of the world and to act purposefully in the sense of the evolutionary development of the “good”.

Content:

Learning to understand the Spiral Dynamics model applied to its meaning for organisations and companies.
To combine the values that the world needs and that comprise the Spiral Dynamics 2nd order stages with the values that organisations need today to solve their problems.

 

Day 2

We use an online survey tool (Value Match) in the consultation that surveys the individual as well as teams and groups or whole organisations, their value system and maps their readiness for change in terms of the culture and structure of the organisation.

Content:

Level measurement with Value Match
Interpretation and use of Value Match analysis
Use of Value Match in the counselling process
Alternatives to the IST status survey

 

Day 3

The development perspective that Spiral Dynamics conveys becomes concrete and tangible. We get to know the stages in the four Wilberian quadrants (MindSet, Competence, Structure, Culture).

The way we live these four areas changes from level to level. What values determine how we think and feel, both as individuals and as a community? How is life together organised? What knowledge and methods are used?

Content:

The individual stages of Spiral Dynamics and their connection with the quadrant model.
The stages and quadrants in the different business areas of companies
The stages, the quadrants and the topic of leadership
Day 4

Organisational structures, corporate instruments and methods are usually from earlier value levels than the values of the employees. Therefore, “raising” these structures is often easy and quickly accepted.

We recognise from which level previous structures and instruments originate and how we can change, adapt or replace them in such a way that the organisation moves towards yellow.

Learning content

The quadrant “BOTTOM RIGHT” – structures and methods – what does it mean at each level? With a focus on Yellow
What tools and methods can we introduce to move the organisation to Yellow, e.g. for making decisions or dealing with conflicts?

 

Day 5 and 6

The inner attitude, the values, have a decisive influence on how we perceive and interpret what we perceive. The world is evaluated and so is one’s own person. Only those who act in accordance with their values and can contribute to their community without fear can develop their full potential.

Through which glasses is the world viewed? How can obstructive behaviour patterns be recognised and integrated? We present highly effective methods that enable this integration process on an energetic level. Your advantage: this succeeds without reliving the original, fearful traumatic events.

Content:

The quadrant “TOP LEFT” – what does it mean on yellow?
How do we work with the mindset individually and in teams?
How do we deal with ego and trauma?
Presentation of coaching methods that can also be used in teams.

 

Day 7

What do we need as counsellors in terms of knowledge and competences to be able to work in a holistic or integral organisation? What methods can we use to make our know-how on development stages and quadrants fruitful for organisations?

Content:

The quadrant “TOP RIGHT” – what does it mean on yellow?
What competences do we need and teach to prepare individuals for Yellow?
What specific training topics do we offer?

 

Day 8

Developing the culture of an organisation is the aim of our work. We recognise why culture is the supporting level of the organisation and how we can work on it. We also recognise why changing organisational culture is often addressed but rarely mastered. We see the importance of aligning with a holistic vision and that there are few tools we can use to directly influence organisational culture.

Content:

The “BOTTOM LEFT” quadrant – what is organisational culture, how does it affect the other quadrants and how do we work with it?
“Setting up” the culture, setting up the vision.

 

Day 9

On the last day of the training series we want to re-enact and practise real counselling situations. We consolidate the learning content, find gaps in knowledge and stabilise ourselves in not knowing.

Content:

What does the counselling process look like? What is the procedure?
What are the prerequisites and no-gos?
What are the hurdles of such counselling?
New leadership role?
How do I proceed in unfamiliar territory?
How can we fill knowledge gaps together?

 

Dates:

9 and 10 March 2023

22 and 23 April 2023

18 and 19 May 2023

8 and 9 June 2023

4 August 2023

 

Costs:

Indicative price 3.333 net € (plus VAT)

 

How we would like to proceed: The workshop itself will be “holistic” in design. Together with the participants we create a climate of openness and appreciation, which shapes a self-responsible co-creation of the common learning process.

In addition to the 10 days of training, there are online appointments where we discuss in-depth questions. There is also the offer that the participants meet in peer groups to clarify questions or to go through exercises together.
