What is a new leader?

A new leader is an interdependent leader. Operating from a place of choice and connection. With the courage to show up in his_her own, unique way fueled by personal values. Conscious about own privileges and rank. Owning her_his light and shadows. Holding firmly the bigger whole, a common vision and evolutionary purpose. A new leader approaches complexity with humility, discernment and in service of co-creating healthy and lasting impact and development. She_he practices the art of ‘power with’. A new leader walks alongside you from a place of empowerment and joy.

How to get there?

Having been exposed to and learning with great business leaders for more than two decades, and also having witnessed how dis-connected leadership destroys huge amount of value in a short time, we like to embrace leadership more and more as an art. New leadership, like any other art, needs passion, practice, a place to explore, inquire, experiment, reflect, repeat and ground in order to get to mastery. Because “there are days when the old ways seem easier. To hell with consensus and community building and conflict resolution. Time to kick some ass…” [From Love and Profit. The Art of Caring Leadership. By James A. Autry.]

Our coaching and trainings create these safe and focused spaces for truthful inquiry, creative interaction, awareness shifts and for manifesting the new.

We are committed to facilitate your growth and the growth of your team far beyond any individual capacity.

“At the end of the day we are trying to do the right thing. Being vulnerable is part of that.”

Large Group Facilitation and Conflict Resolution

Who are our clients?

Communities, community leaders, business and social-profit organizations. Medium to large size group of people (20 – 200+) who are brought together or meeting with the intention to surface, look at and process relevant issues, conflicts, pockets of growth as well as further developing shared purpose. SystemSomatics works on the level of clarifying relationships and solution finding as well as enhancing overall group and community awareness.

As a safe facilitated space is created where voices in the system can be brought forth authentically, listened to with care and processed on a deeper level moving forward, we create internal cohesion through individual and group learning and open the conversation for the next step to take place, with full ownership of this very collective.

How does it look like?

Case Example: Consulting firm, rapid growth, alignment & purpose

Global gathering of the 200+ leaders, partners and community members of the company. A thoroughly designed transformation program along the main organizational topics included a large group process and plenary conflict solution forum. Through our facilitation it became possible in a short amount of time, to have all voices been heard and acknowledged, to collect the list of the most relevant and concerning issues and to process a deep rooted conflict from the early founding phase. As a result, the members of the organization re-engaged on a deeper level and felt liberated to fully move forward and co-create their shared organizational purpose.
