Systemic Coaching & Constellations

The 3rd edition, published in August 2020, builds on the depth and breadth of the previous, with new chapters on using the methodology with teams and in supervision. This edition also invites us to see the human need to belong within the larger cycle of joining, belonging and leaving systems and illuminates why this is so important to understand in coaching.

Fresh material on the use of resonant language and how to surface the ‘secret sentences’ held in individuals, teams and whole organisations takes you to the heart of the approach. With a new opening chapter inviting a reflection on your journey into coaching and a new chapter on three core needs as human beings, it continues to stretch coaches thinking and working approaches.

Watch the two minute film below to hear what coaches on the 2022 ‘Practitioner’ journey think of the 3rd edition:

The book is required reading on the MSc in Coaching and Behavioural Change at Henley Business School (University of Reading), as well as on the Advanced Diploma in Coaching at UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School, (University College Dublin). It features is also a part of the Post-Graduate Certificate in Psychosynthesis Leadership Coaching and on the Roffey Park Post-Graduate Coaching Certificate. The book is held in over 40 international university libraries.

It is on the recommended reading list of The i-coach Academy and on the The ICF Virtual bookstore as well as being a popular read in a number of coach book clubs in Europe, the US and worldwide. Its publication has led to invitations from around the world where John and the growing team share the stance, the principles and the practical application that make this approach so distinctive.
