Systemic Modeling © October 2017 Training with BLOCKBUSTERS Consultancy

The Systemic Modeling © Training 2017

Culture is the number one reason why business change, transition, and transformation re-structurings fail. Systemic modeling © helps beat the odds by developing internal emotional and relational agility.

BLOCKBUSTERS Systemic modeling © is a licence-mix, methodology, and toolset that allows you to make culture visible. Work in these 10 days on setting up our blueprints for your work context or business.

We recommend applicants to have experience at or to have a keen interest in looking at themselves with systemic constellations or body-oriented psychotherapy as we will be using these in our social learning labs in the program.


WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?


  • Get in touch with your natural ability to relate and know about emotions in the business context
  • Learn to map stakeholders before, during, and after your change/transition/change assignment
  • Understand and embody the systemic principles within your project, organization, and at home
  • Open your eyes for the levels of culture, group dynamics and interrelations, and how to speak up
  • Discover how systems thinking and systemic constellations can work to get things done in flow
  • Grow your capacity to respond and paradoxically intervene in (very different) business cultures
  • Apply our blueprint, programs, culture scans, and advisory principles/philosophy in your context
  • Introduction to systemic literature, models, and our toolbox as inspiration to use this yourself
  • Get to know experts in systemic work in the business world around specific applications/topics

The training focuses on the undercurrents of organizational life. We focus on the psychodynamics, interactions, and historical aspects of business (in bold). This training thus goes beyond the usual levels of strategy, goals, or process.

RESULTS/SYMPTOMS/SUCCESS/IMPACT Success or lack thereof comes from cultural blindspots.
PROCESSES/STRATEGIES/TASKS/GOALS See the big picture: where and how do we deliver what?
PSYCHODYNAMICS/COMMUNICATION Connect the dots: how do we meet in diversity/conflict?
INTERACTIONS/INTER-RELATIONS What internal tensions and institutional dynamics play?
SYSTEMIC/CULTURAL/SOCIETAL How is today's reality influenced by our history/culture?
SPIRITUAL/SHAMAN/ARCHETYPES How do we nurture the earth's rhythm of life and death?

The key principles that we want you to live and breath after the training are those that underpin Systemic Modeling ©:

CONTEXT
Solutions cannot be found at the level of awareness that created it. Instead, for knowing what we are called to do in this moment, we need to zoom out, see the big picture, and our roles therein.
RELATIONALITY
Business growth cannot happen with the sole focus on financial results. Instead, business develops like an organism. Micro and macro-movements can completely re-design or re-position a business.
EMOTIONALITY
Transformational leadership fails if we keep playing out the scripts from our personal and collective pasts. Instead, radical awareness of cultural dynamics/patterns frees up energy to get the job done.

THE TRAINING PROGRAM


Whereas the Systemic Modeling © methodology (read more on its applications and origins here) is normally kept for our exclusive in-company trajectories, this 10 day open training is designed to make you a certified systemic modeler. After an intake with you, we tailor the building blocks so that it meets both your professional and personal questions:

SYSTEMS THINKING
learn the principles and map business relations
CULTURAL BLINDSPOTS
learn to recognise what is not seen by most
EMOTIONAL AGILITY
connect to each other and detect key patterns
STRATEGIC INTERVENTIONS
learn the basic ways to intervene in cultures
INTERPERSONAL DYNAMICS
learn about what blocks/boosts you
BLUEPRINT PROGRAMS
learn how to run our programs yourself

During the training we focus on treating your head with systems thinking, your heart with embodied learning, and your hands with visual modeling. In/around the training we may also invite experts and professionals who specialize in a.o.:

SYSTEMS THINKING
To understand today's problems and tomorrow's challenges, we need to acknowledge the bigger picture: how do we design our social systems to be inclusive, equitable, and fair to all life across the globe?
EMBODIED LEARNING
To change the world, you need to start with yourself. What inspires you? What blocks you? How do you un-learn what no longer works? How do you re-program your automatic pilot, habits, and values? What 'moves' you?
VISUAL MODELING
To move other people's views and perceptions, we need to be radically aware of our own blindspots. What is it that we do (not) see? How do we map group dynamics, business paradoxes, and the roles we play in larger societal trends?
